It’s been almost four years since the members of Sleater-Kinney announced they were taking an indefinite hiatus. Many people assumed this news meant a permanent split in the band, but a new interview with Carrie Brownstein has hinted that the band may record again “sometime in the next five years.”
Brownstein runs a popular blog at NPR and has just made her acting debut in the movie Some Days Are Better Than Others (see trailer above). It was during a bout of promo for the latter that she let slip about a possible Sleater-Kinney reunion, and also revealed that she has been getting a new band together with Janet Weiss.
“I just started a new band after taking many much-needed years off from playing,” she said. “I can't really talk about it that much, but we have seven songs, and there are four of us, and we're based in Portland - but not all of our members live there.” Brownstein also elaborates on her acting career in this interview at the IFC website
