After eleven years and a handful of critically acclaimed albums, Seattle-based rock group Sleater-Kinney has decided to go on indefinite hiatus. Citing no specific reason for the breakup, they emphasized that this split was more than just a vacation.
The upcoming summer shows will be our last. As of now, there are no plans for future tours or recordings.
Prior to the shocking announcement, Sleater-Kinney had five remaining shows scheduled throughout the summer, and they intend on playing those shows. Shows are planned for Louisville, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, and Washington D.C.
Widely considered one of the best bands of the last 20 years, the all female group released their seventh and last album The Woods in the spring of 2005 to rave reviews. None of the members has announced individual plans for the future.
