Rookie announce blog
Need to hear some wise words from a grown up?  We sure do.  And we greatly encourage you to watch Sleater-Kinney’s installment of Rookie’s “Ask a Grown Woman” feature. Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker answer a few questions from Rookie’s readers, recorded during a stop on their sold-out spring U.K. trek in support of No Cities To Love.
 
Sleater-Kinney’s previously announced 2015 tour schedule resumes Saturday, July 18th with a headlining performance at Pitchfork Music Festival, and their next festival appearance will be November 21st-22nd in Mexico City’s Corona Capital Festival.
 
Then from December 4th-16th, Sleater-Kinney will embark on a Midwestern-East Coast U.S.  For the December 12th-16th dates, the group will play five special shows throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn, moving from the large to intimate. Venues include Kings Theatre (Dec. 12th), Terminal 5 (Dec. 13th), Irving Plaza (Dec. 14th), Music Hall of Williamsburg (Dec. 15th), and Market Hotel (Dec. 16th).

What are “They” saying about it?

“America’s fiercest punk band….10 songs in 33 minutes, not a dud in the bunch, all surging in uptempo stomp-down-the-door mode. There’s more low-end thud to their sound than before. The whole album crackles with the palpable excitement of three rock lifers in a room, eager to see what happens when they plug in and let it rip.” [Best Albums of 2015 (so far)] - Rolling Stone
 
“The trio still snap and crackle on their first set since 2005. No Cities… might sound chaotic at first, but each element—Corin Tucker’s sweet snarl, Janet Weiss’ rugged beats, Carrie Brownstein’s noisy solos—is exactly in its right place.” [Best Albums of 2015 (so far)] - Entertainment Weekly
 
“…33 minutes of unbridled ferocity” [Best Albums of 2015 (so far)] -Time
