It’s the ten-second music clip that’s rocking the Internet today — at least if you’re a fan of Sleater-Kinney, who went on “indefinite hiatus” in 2006.
Now, early recipients of the Pacific Northwest act’s box set, “Start Together” (due to be released by Sub Pop next Tuesday, October 21 — though the physical box set is actually already sold out), found that the set included a surprise: a seven-inch one-sided single with a previously unreleased song by the band, believed to be called “Bury Our Friends.” A ten-second clip of the song has been posted on Stereogum.
But what really started the excitement were the numbers “1/20/15” that appeared on the single (the autographs of the band’s three members — Corin Tucker, Carrie Brownstein, and Janet Weiss — are on the single’s flip side) Could this be a reference to an upcoming release date? The website Wondering Sound next turned up what’s said to be an album cover of a new release by the band “No Cities to Love”
There’s been no official word about any further releases as yet. But Sleater-Kinney just launched an official facebook page 11 days ago (October 6). Which makes it look like something beyond a box set release is in the works.
And don’t worry if you weren’t able to snag one of the initial limited box sets, on colored vinyl. Due to demand, a second run is being prepared in black vinyl.
