Babes In Toyland fire bassist Maureen Herman

Newly reunited Minnesota badasses Babes In Toyland have fired bassist Maureen Herman due to “personal differences”. Herman revealed the news to fans via the following Facebook statement:

‘First, I’d like to thank everyone for their incredibly kind thoughts and support. I may write like a motherfucker, but I don’t know if I could ever find the right words to express how much Babes in Toyland’s fans mean to me. It’s true that I am no longer the bassist of Babes in Toyland.

Due to personal differences, Kat and Lori have made the decision to tour with someone else. I wish them nothing but the best and hope the tour is a huge success. When Kat and I first discussed playing again, one of the things we were most excited about was the opportunity to play in front of our kids. I can’t help but be grateful that our too brief reunion gave me the chance to play in front of my daughter, Anna at our show at the Roxy.

Again, thank you all for being incredible fans and friends, and let’s have a kickass rest of the year, shall we? I look forward to interacting with you all on my current and future creative projects.’

American fans, fret not. Shows for Babes In Toyland’s forthcoming autumn tour still intend to go-ahead. The band will be joined by a different bass player, who has yet to be announced. Watch this space.
