Sleater-Kinney And Wilco Announce It's Time Joint Tour
The It's Time tour will launch on Aug. 6 in Spokane, Wash., then head to Kansas City, Mo., Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston and more before its last stop in Chicago on Aug. 29. NNAMDÏ will join the bands on select dates.
The bands made the announcement today, March 10, via a fun video on social media that had comedienne and Sleater-Kinney singer/guitarist Carrie Brownstein showing off her skills.
In another tweet, the "Dig Me Out" band said they are "psyched" to tour with Wilco, who released their latest album Ode To Joy last year.
Sleater-Kinney released their latest album The Center Won't Hold last year after the departure of drummer Janet Weiss. Brownstein told the Recording Academy that they are focused on their future as a band: "After No Cities, I think we felt a sense of accomplishment in setting out what we'd hoped to do, which was to return to playing music in a way that wasn't nostalgia-based or playing into any sort of sentimentality, but that we knew there was sort of this next chapter of the band and that we wanted to focus on new music and moving forward," she said.
Presale tickets on sale Wednesday, March 11. For more information on the tour, go here.
