Sleater-Kinney Announces New Full-length

Sleater-Kinney announce The Center Won’t Hold
Sleater-Kinney 'The Center Won’t Hold'

Sleater-Kinney share “The Future Is Here,” the second new track to be revealed from their forthcoming release, The Center Won’t Hold, produced by St. Vincent.The full-length is due for release on August 16th via Mom + Pop. The band, will kick off their fall North American tour on October 9th, in Spokane, Washington, with a run of new European dates, announced as well.

The Center Won’t Hold is the tenth album from the iconic trio comprised of Carrie Brownstein (guitar/vocals), Corin Tucker (guitar/vocals) and Janet Weiss (drums). Brownstein explains, “We’re always mixing the personal and the political but on this record, despite obviously thinking so much about politics, we were really thinking about the person — ourselves or versions of ourselves or iterations of depression or loneliness — in the middle of the chaos.” Weiss adds, “I think for Carrie and Corin it was liberating to explore a different sound palette. Annie (St. Vincent) has a lot of experience building her own music with keyboards and synthesizers so she could be our guide to help us make sense of this new landscape and still sound like us.” Tucker says, “The Center Won’t Hold drops you into the world of catastrophe that touches on the election. And almost like a mission statement, at the end of that song, it’s like the band is finding its way out of that space by becoming a rock band.”
