Nine years have passed since Sleater-Kinney released The Woods and called it quits. Now, it seems the trio may be getting back together. Yes, get very excited.
Stereogum has uploaded an Instagram video featuring a few seconds of a new Sleater-Kinney song called “Bury Our Friends.” They’re reporting the new song comes on a blank 7″ record with “1/20/15” etched into the grooves. If a new album is coming January 20, 2015, there’s only one thing we hate about that — it’s not soon enough.
The disc — which also had all three members’ signatures imprinted into the vinyl — comes with Sleater-Kinney’s box set, Start Together, which drops Oct. 21. Listen to “Bury Our Friends” below.
This news has fans justifiably salivating. The band’s last album, 2005’s The Woods, was easily one of the strongest efforts in their top-notch discography. And given that Carrie Brownstein has become something of a crossover celebrity thanks to Portlandia, the indie favorites could be bigger than ever this time around.
