I listen

Another return

Yes. Sleater-Kinney had more to say.

I was lucky enough to be at the 2006 show where Sleater-Kinney, a blistering Northwest punk band, performed one last time before going on indefinite hiatus (during which they stayed busy: member Carrie Brownstein, for example, co-created Portlandia). A hiatus which is now ending: the band members are playing together again, and preparing both a tour (more dates to come) and a new album.

Including "Bury Our Friends," a song with a lyric video (and their friend, avant-garde artist and filmmaker Miranda July, in a suit and mask).

Here's to this being the right time for Sleater-Kinney to be back!
