If Kurt Cobain would be around today, I bet The Sleater Kinney would be his favorite band. He liked weird left girl bands. Sleater- Kinney will make a summer tour 2020 with Wilco.
This co-headlining summer tour will kick off on 6th August at the First Interstate Center for the Arts in Spokane, Washington. And the tour will end on 29th August at Chicago, IL @ Millennium Park Pritzker Pavilion w/ NNAMDI.
Sleater-Kinney declared ‘It’s Time’ by posting a teaser video in which Wilco front man Jeff Tweedy phones up Carrie Brownstein to investigate about her plans for summer. She said–
“Yeah, remember when we spent Christmas together a few years ago?” Tweedy asks in the call. “I was wondering, what are you doing this August?” Later, the musician tells Brownstein to pack “guitars and amplifiers” after she mistakenly believes he’d asked her “on vacation”.
This band released total 7 albums from their begining to till now. These are respectively Sleater-Kinney (1995), Call the Doctor (1996), Dig Me Out (1997), The Hot Rock (1999), All Hands on the Bad One (2000), One Beat (2002) and The Woods (2005). Their second studio album released after their reunion, The Center Won’t Hold, was made by St. Vincent, and released in August 2019.
Weiss later cleared up about her determination to give up after 24 years, explaining: “The rules changed within the band, and [Brownstein and Corin Tucker] told me the rules changed.
“I said, ‘Am I just the drummer now?’ They said yes. And I said, ‘Can you tell me if I am still a creative equal in the band?’ And they said no. So, I left.”
Ticket pre sell has already started from 11th march for fans. More Information are available in their website.
