Dublin live date – 26 March 2015 – Vicar Street
Hear New Song “Bury Our Friends” below:
Sleater-Kinney will release ‘No Cities to Love,’ their first album in ten years and most explosive to date, January 16/19/20 worldwide via Sub Pop Records, with North American and European tours to follow.
The trio – Corin Tucker (vocals/guitar), Carrie Brownstein (guitar/vocals) and Janet Weiss (drums) – recorded ‘No Cities to Love’ in secret at Tiny Telephone Recordings in San Francisco in early 2014, with additional sessions at Kung Fu Bakery Recording Studios in Portland, and Electrokitty Recording in Seattle. John Goodmanson, who helmed four previous Sleater-Kinney albums, produced ‘No Cities.’
“We sound possessed on these songs,” says Brownstein, “willing it all – the entire weight of the band and what it means to us – back into existence.”
Sleater-Kinney surprised fans by including the new song “Bury Our Friends” as a one-sided 7″ with the October 17 release of ‘Start Together’ (also on Sub Pop), a limited-edition vinyl boxed set comprising remastered versions of their seven previous albums. The colored vinyl edition of ‘Start Together’ sold out weeks before release and a second, black vinyl edition is available for pre-order now.
