Out of ‘The Woods,’ In the Works?

The babeliest babes.

The babeliest babes.

*UPDATE: The collective speculation was right! Sleater-Kinney will have a new album called No Cities to Love, complemented by a North American/European tour.*

Folks who ordered the Start Together boxset containing the complete remastered discography of Northwest rioteers Sleater-Kinney seem to have received a little bonus.  A 7″ record simply labelled ‘1/20/15’ and bearing a new song by the group is an auspicious sign for fans who have waited nigh-on 10 years since The Woods for a new album.

Behold!

Dun dun dun! More photos can be seen here.

While Corin Tucker solo and Wild Flag – a band featuring Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss – have produced some outstanding work during SK’s hiatus, this is a reunion I await perhaps too eagerly.
