Sleater-Kinney recently announced their first album in 10 years. ‘No Cities To Love’ will be released on January 19, following on from this month’s career-spanning boxset ‘Start Together’.
Carrie Brownstein of the band said of the album: “We sound possessed on these songs, willing it all – the entire weight of the band and what it means to us – back into existence.”
Way released his debut solo album, ‘Hesitant Alien’, at the end of last month and it entered the Official UK Albums Chart at Number 14.
