Sleater-Kinney announce new album “Little Rope”, drops first single “Hell”

Author Hernan Osuna - 3.10.2023

US rock band Sleater-Kinney has announced their eleventh studio albumLittle Rope”, set for release on January 19, 2024, via Loma Vista Recordings. The legendary alternative duo – Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein– also shared the video for the first single “Hell”, which can be seen below.

The clip was directed by Ashley Connor and includes a cameo from Miranda July. Recorded at Flora Recording and Playback in Portland, Oregon with Grammy-winning producer John Congleton, “Little Rope” was partly inspired by the deaths of Brownstein’s mother and stepfather while on holiday in Italy.

The new LP will be Sleater-Kinney‘s 11th in their storied career. It will also be the group’s second release without longtime drummer Janet Weiss, who left the band after 2019’s “The Center Won’t Hold”. Pre-order “Little Rope” here.

The alt-rock duo has also announced a North American tour in 2024, kicking off in San Diego on February 28 and including multi-night dates in New York, San Francisco and Portland. Prior to that, the band will play Pitchfork Festival London on November 10 and Corona Capital in Mexico City on November 19. Tickets for all 2024 dates go on sale Friday 6 October. Grab yours here.
