Sleater Kinney hiatus has come to an end. The Olympia, Washington trio has re-formed and recorded a powerful new song about perseverance, “Bury Our Friends,” that lives up to its punk and indie rock pasts with big, slithering riffs and a ringing, anthemic chorus. The song appears on a seven-inch single that comes with the group’s lavish, career-spanning vinyl box set “Start Together”, which also includes a 44-page booklet containing never-before-seen photos. the reunited trio will release their new LP “No Cities to Love”, a 10-track studio album featuring “Bury Your Friends,” on January 20th through Sub Pop Records. The album was secretly recorded at San Francisco’s Tiny Telephone Recordings earlier this year, with additional sessions taking place at Portland’s Kung Fu Bakery Recording Studio and Seattle’s Electrokitty. Producer John Goodmanson, who worked on four Sleater-Kinney albums, also returned to the fold .


Sleater-Kinney  announcing a surprise reunion by way of releasing the amazing new song Bury Our Friends.” Then the second song the trio has shared from their forthcoming reunion album  No Cities To Loveis called “Surface Envy,” If anything, this is an even better Sleater-Kinney song than “Bury Our Friends”: A fired-up, full-bodied howler powered by righteous fury and beautifully tangled riffage. The world does not deserve to hear Corin Tucker in roaring-lion form like this, but we’re getting it anyway.  The band premiered “Surface Envy”  recently but they have no other plans to collaborate beyond next year. Wrote Janet Weiss, “We are definitely living in the moment and enjoying being together making music again. We all have other projects as well and realize our time in the band is valuable. Not taking SK for granted, and making this album as good as possible works for us this time around. So no plans for the distant future.
