Sleater-Kinney shutting down

56 minutes ago

PORTLAND, Ore. - Sleater-Kinney, the critically acclaimed rock trio,say they will go on "indefinite hiatus" after completing their upcomingsummer concerts.


"After11 years as a band, Sleater-Kinney have decided to go on indefinitehiatus," according to the statement released Tuesday by Sub Pop, theband's Seattle-based record label, and posted on Sleater-Kinney's Website.

"The upcoming summer shows will be our last. As of now, there are no plans for future tours or recordings."

The statement did not give a reason for the decision, and band members could not be reached for comment.

Sleater-Kinney is scheduled to play their last date in Chicago on Aug. 4.

The group took their name from a road near Olympia, Wash., the city where Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein formed the band.

Drummer Janet Weiss joined before the release of the 1997's "Dig Me Out," the record that gave the group a much wider audience.

The band, which relocated to Portland, released their seventh album, "The Woods," in 2005.
