New album, tour dates confirmed...

Issuing a lavish, career spanning box set, Sleater-Kinney dropped in a present for a handful of fans.

An otherwise un-marked seven inch single revealed new material, giving rise to speculation across the weekend that the legendary group were set to reform.

Well, it's true. Sleater-Kinney are set to release new album 'No Cities To Love' - their first in ten years - via Sub Pop on January 19th.

Carrie Brownstein: "We sound possessed on these songs, willing it all - the entire weight of the band and what it means to us - back into existence."

New track - A BRAND NEW TRACK FROM SLEATER-KINNEY - has gone online.
