Sleater-Kinney have announced their brand new album.
Titled ‘The Center Won’t Hold’, the St. Vincent-produced record set to drop on 16th August, followed by a UK tour early next year.
The news comes alongside another new track from the album, ‘The Future Is Here’, which follows up on last month’s first taster, ‘Hurry On Home’. You can check it out below.
Speaking about the new music, drummer Janet Weiss explains: “I think for Carrie and Corin it was liberating to explore a different sound palette.”
“Instead of just going into the studio to document what we’d done, we were going in to explore and to find the essence of something. To dig in deeper,” continues vocalist and guitarist Carrie Brownstein, while the third part of the iconic trio, Corin Tucker reveals that working on new music “was like this manic energy of empowerment.”
The UK and Ireland tour will visit:
26 London, UK – O2 Academy Brixton

28 Glasgow, UK – Barrowland Ballroom
01 Dublin, IRE – Vicar Street
