Following the rumour floating around earlier this month, riot grrrl originators Sleater-Kinney have confirmed one show on these shores for next year. The February date will be the Washington trio's first performance on New Zealand soil since the 2006 Big Day Out, and comes on the heels of their eighth studio album No Cities to Love - their first full-length record after a decade long hiatus. Here are the show details...

SLEATER – KINNEY
announce their first New Zealand show in 10 years

It is with a great deal of excitement we announce the return to New Zealand shores of the hugely influential SLEATER-KINNEY.

They will bring their full No Cities to Love touring show to the Powerstation on Monday 29 February - the perfect setting for what The Guardian calls a "no-frills, high-kicking, hard-rocking" show.

Sleater-Kinney came crashing out of the ’90s Pacific Northwest riot grrrl scene, setting a new bar for punk’s political insight and emotional impact. Hailed as “America’s best rock band” by Greil Marcus in Time Magazine, and as “America’s best punk band ever. EVER” by Rob Sheffield in Rolling Stone, the band put out seven searing albums in 10 years before going on indefinite hiatus in 2006.

In the hiatus Tucker released two albums with the Corin Tucker Band, while Brownstein and Weiss released one album with Wild Flag. Brownstein has been writing a book “Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl” and also co-created and co-stars in the cult series 'PORTLANDIA', and Weiss recorded and toured with Quasi and Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, among others.

Then almost a decade later, the trio – guitarists/vocalists Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein, and drummer Janet Weiss – came back together and recorded and released the triumphant album “No Cities To Love” in January 2015. It is a modern punk classic that is certain to be on most best-of and award lists for this year.
