Sleater-Kinney Drop Album Release Date, Share New Song & More Tour Dates
Indie-rock band Sleater-Kinney have dropped a release date for their much-awaited 10th album, The Center Won't Hold. They've also released a new song: "The Future Is Here."
The Center Won't Hold is out Aug. 16, but fans can pre-order now. The band first confirmed the new album, which is being produced by GRAMMY winner St. Vincent, in January. The album is their first since 2015's No Cities To Love.
"'The Future Is Here' touches on the isolation that can come from a technology-driven culture. "I start my day on a tiny screen/ Try to connect the words, they're right in front of me/ I walk to work out on the city streets/ No one speaks to me, their stony faces beat," lead vocalist Corin Tucker sings.
The trio also announced a European tour that will have stops in Germany, France as well as the U.K., and additional North American tour dates in Chicago, Oakland, Calif., Portland and Seattle.
