Sleater-Kinney: No Cities to Love Tour

While this band is not exactly new, they formed way back in 1994, they are new to me (I’m pretty sure I’ve been living under a rock).  The all-girl rock group, Sleater-Kinney plans to release a new album and go out on tour.  Made up of Carrie Brownstein (known recently for her work with Fred Armisen on Portlandia), Corin Tucker and Janet Weiss, the group plans to release their newest album, “No Cities to Love” on Jan. 20, 2015.  The band plans to kick of their tour to support the album on Feb. 8 in Spokane, WA and will wrap up March 1 in Pittsburgh, PA and will later go on to Europe and conclude their tour.

Sleater-Kinney got their start in Olympia, WA in 1994.  Brownstein (singer and guitar player) and Tucker named the band after a local road. Their first album was released in 1995 and was self titled.  Their next album came out in 1996, “Call The Doctor” and was followed up by “Dig Me Out” in 1997.  Later albums included “The Hot Rock” (1999),  “All Hands on the Bad one” (2000), “One Beat” (2002) and “The Woods” (2006).  Sleater-Kinney broke up in 2006.  Last year, the band ruinited and rekindled their flame after performing  a cover of “Rockin in the Free World” with their one-time tourmates, Pearl Jam.

Sleater-Kinney in an integral part of the indie rock and riot grrl scenes in the Pacific Northwest.  The all girl band if well know for their feminist and left-leaning politics.
