This year prolific 90s punk band Sleater-Kinney
announced they would reunite to release their first album in 10 years. No Cities To Love
is due out January 20. In anticipation, the band has been rolling out some of the new material. So far we've been gifted the lead single "Bury Our Friends"
, featuring Miranda July. In a recent interview with NPR, they previewed a segment of the album's title track
, as well as a clip of "Surface Envy," a track about getting back together. Today, the band participated in a Reddit AMA
, at the end of which they rolled out the full version of "Surface Envy."
During the interview Sleater-Kinney revealed that, actually, they have no real plans beyond the release of No Cities To Love
and the 2015 reunion tour.
"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 - we'll make the next few months as amazing as they can possibly be!"
They also revealed that, while the likelihood of a Sleater-Kinney concert making an appearance on Carrie's show Portlandia
is slim, Fred Armisen did offer to be the band's roadie "IRL."
