Sleater-Kinney are to release their entire discography in a seven-album boxset.
Sub Pop Records will put out ‘Start Together’ on October 20. The release will be limited to 3,000 copies and will contain remastered versions of all seven of the band’s albums on coloured vinyl as well as a hardback book featuring never-before-seen images of the band.
The remastered albums will be released individually on CD and black vinyl on the same day. All of the albums are available digitally from today (September 2).
Sleater-Kinney released seven albums between 1995-2005 with their self-titled debut album being followed by ‘Call The Doctor’, ‘Dig Me Out’, ‘The Hot Rock’, ‘All Hands On The Bad One’ and ‘One Beat’. The band’s most recent album, ‘The Woods’, was released in 2005.
Sleater-Kinney members Carrie Brownstein, Corin Tucker and Janet Weiss (along with REM’s Peter Buck) joined Pearl Jam onstage at their Moda Center concert in Portland in November 2013, where they covered Neil Young’s ‘Rockin’ In The Free World’.
Speaking after that gig, Brownstein hinted at a reunion, saying that she felt the band had “more to say”.
Sleater-Kinney went on indefinite hiatus in 2006 with Brownstein going on to form Wild Flag with the band’s drummer Janet Weiss as well as write and star in US TV show Portlandia.
