Sleater Kinney

After eleven years as a band, Sleater-Kinney have decided to go on indefinite hiatus.

The upcoming summer shows will be our last. As of now, there are no plans for future tours or recordings. We feel lucky to have had the support of many wonderful people over the years. We want to thank everyone who has worked with us, written kind words about us, performed with us, and inspired us.

But mostly we want to extend our gratitude to our amazing fans. You have been a part of our story from the beginning. We could not have made our music without your enthusiasm, passion, and loyalty. It is you who have made the entire journey worthwhile.

With love and thanks,

Sleater-Kinney

Wow I am so stunned about this.

I feel so lucky to have seen them in Austin in the produce warehouse during SXSW.

Damn...this makes me sad!

This sucks, straight up! I honestly thought they were in it for the long haul, dammit. I still need to hear "ONE BEAT". I just got my ticket.

I was looking forward to seeing them at Lolla, now even more.

seriously sucks. though i'm going to be optimistic since they chose to use the word "hiatus."

at least they ended it on a good note...
