Legendary punk group Sleater-Kinney have announced their very own headlining show in Melbourne next year to go along with their performance at Golden Plains Festival. The rock’n’roll pioneers tore through the nineties as part of the heavily influential riot grrrl scene, with seven incredible albums across a decade, before announcing an indefinite hiatus in 2006.
In the years since, the members of Sleater-Kinney were anything but quiet. Corin Tucker released two albums with the Corin Tucker Band, while Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss released an album with Wild Flag. Brownstein has also been working on her book Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl as well as co-producing/starring in IFC’s hit TV series Portlandia. Weiss also added to her impressive credentials touring and recording with artists like Quasi, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks and others.
The band announced their glorious return in 2014, and released the incredible comeback album No Cities To Love in January of this year. A powerfully important band, Sleater-Kinney are set to embark on a tour off the back of No Cities To Love and hit Australian shores next March. With their Golden Plains appearance and now a Melbourne show, other major cities can hold their breath in anticipation, hoping to have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the legendary group.
