Oh Bollocks.

“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.”

We believe that The Woods is simply one of the best albums we've heard in years so thank fuck we got the chance to see them rock out one final time on the last tour. The final shows do not include any international dates so that's that.

Maybe we'll see three new projects grow from the debris... fingers crossed. In the meantime, here's Jumpers:

First Gorkys Zygotic Mynci now Sleater - Kinney! Does it mean I'm getting old if my formative years bands have all split up?
