06:26:2006: Sleater-Kinney Call It Quits

Sleater-Kinney, indisputably one of the most important bands of the last decade or so, have officially broken up. Their website begins with the following statement:

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,

You can however witness a handful of swan song shows this summer at the Forecastle Festival, Lollapallooza, Philly’s Starlight Ballroom, DC’s 9:30, and NYC’s Webster Hall.

They won't soon be forgotten...
