Sleater-Kinney formed in Olympia, Washington in 1994, and by the turn of the century the trio had come to be recognized as one of the best rock bands in America. They released seven studio albums between 1994 and 2005. In 2006, Sleater-Kinney went on a hiatus to work on individual projects and also to simply live their lives. Corin Tucker (vocals and guitar), Carrie Brownstein (guitar and vocals) and Janet Weiss (drums) quietly reunited about a year ago to write and record the songs for a new album, No Cities To Love. Their common aim was to reinvent the band. Sleater-Kinney achieved that goal, with a new record that is relentless and thrilling.
