Sleater-Kinney Return! New Album No Cities to Love! 2015 Tour! "Bury Our Friends" Lyric Video!

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" below. 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 Doctor, One 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".

Sleater-Kinney formed in Olympia, Washington in 1994. Singer-guitarists Brownstein (then of the band Excuse 17) and Tucker (of Heavens to Betsy) named Sleater-Kinney after a local road and released their self-titled debut album in 1995. Call The Doctor followed in 1996, and new drummer Janet Weiss (also of Quasi) joined the band for 1997's Dig Me Out.

Brownstein, Tucker, and Weiss went on to release 1999's The Hot Rock, 2000's All Hands on the Bad One, and 2002's One Beat until their last record, The Woods, arrived in 2005. The band broke up after a final tour in summer 2006. Last year, Sleater-Kinney reunited on stage for the first time since 2006 to cover Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World" with their one-time tourmates, Pearl Jam.

In December, news broke that Janet Weiss and Carrie Brownstein's post-Sleater-Kinney band Wild Flag "ran its course." Weiss and Brownstein released one great record with Wild Flag, while Corin Tucker has released two solo records since 2006. Brownstein also launched herself to a more visible realm of fame with her sketch comedy show "Portlandia".

I did not expect to see Pittsburgh on that list of cities, but am obviously elated to be wrong.

Wish I could justify spending the money for that box set.

this is great news. new song is good.

kinda hoping that Carrie doesn't force her way into the spotlight... love Corin Tucker as a singer, so the more she's lead vocalist, the better for me.

i said southwest because LA is the only remote surprise here, but not since they are almost surely on coachella. san fran will probably happen in that vicinity, maybe arizona and/or texas.

big bands always do the major markets first, i.e. the coasts, especially bands reuniting and cashing in, so lack of southeast is a given.

is there a thing in the Coachella contract that does not allow them to play within so many miles?
