Iceland, just the hint of the aurora looking out to the mountains beyond Thingvellir. A perfect night.

Indie Rock & Post-Punk Revival



Sleater-Kinney are back! As anticipated, Carrie Brownstein, Corin Tucker, and Janet Weiss will release new album No Cities to Love on January 20 in the U.S. and January 19 internationally via Sub Pop. Watch the lyric video for new track ‘Bury Our Friends’ HERE. It features director/artist/actress/author Miranda July, a longtime Sleater-Kinney collaborator. Download the song in exchange for an email address here

The band is also heading out on tour in early 2015. Check out the dates below, along with the album tracklist. The deluxe vinyl version comes with an etched, single-sided 12” with two bonus tracks.

No Cities to Love was produced by John Goodmanson, who produced Call the DoctorOne Beat, Dig Me Out, and  All Hands on the Bad One. In a press release, Brownstein said, “We sound possessed on these songs, willing it all - the entire weight of the band and what it means to us - back into existence.”

This week, Sub Pop releases the discography box set Start Together. As previously reported, it contained a mysterious white 7” bearing the inscription “1/20/15.” That turned out to be the album’s release date; the song on the 7” is “Bury Our Friends”.
