Today (July 1) marks the midway point of 2019, and few bands have had an impact on the first six months of the year quite like Sleater-Kinney.
The reformed guitar-rock trio have released a series of killer singles (including Song of the Year contender “Hurry On Home”), are prepping the summer release of their new St. Vincent-produced album The Center Won’t Hold (out August 16 via Mom + Pop), and head out on a fall North American tour that hits Boston’s House of Blues on October 29.
“After intense deliberation and with heavy sadness, I have decided to leave Sleater-Kinney,” Weiss writes. “The band is heading in a new direction and it is time for me to move on. I will never forget the heights we reached or the magnificent times Corin, Carrie and I shared. We were a force of nature.”
