Sleater-Kinney’s new St. Vincent-produced album is titled ‘The Center Won’t Hold’
In January, Sleater-Kinney revealed they had a new album, produced by St. Vincent in the works, and while Corin Tucker has recently been busy on tour with Filthy Friends, they followed that news with Sleater-Kinney’s first tour date of 2019, Hopscotch Festival. Now we have another bit of information about the new album: its title, The Center Won’t Hold.
Stereogum reports that some users of the indieheads subreddit found the information on Mom + Pop’s bio of the band, which has been updated for the new record and mentions a new single called “Hurry on Home.”
There’s still no release date to be seen, but the bio does quote Corin on the album’s title track:
“The Center Won’t Hold drops you into the world of catastrophe that touches on the election,” says guitarist/vocalist Tucker of the title track. “We’re not taking it easy on the audience. That song is meant to be really heavy and dark. And almost like a mission statement, at the end of that song, it’s like we’re finding our way out of that space by becoming a rock band.”
