After some cancelled European tour dates, a lot of quietness, and what seemed like some animosity at the end of the road, Sleater-Kinney have decided to go on a break for an indefinite amount of time. You know what that means... they won't end the band decisively, but they won't keep it together either.
They'll play a few dates on the east coast before making the August 4th show at Lollapalooza show their last one. Is that strange? There's no hometown send off, no big finale? It's just, we'll do what we already committed to doing and then nothing else.
Sleater-Kinney won't say why the break is happening or if they'll ever hold out the option for future music. It's just over — for now, and maybe later. Check out the note that the band put on their Web site, which was also announced by Sub Pop Records:
"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.
