Published Sep 30, 2016Having not released any new material since 2004's This Island, Le Tigre have got back together, with news emerging that the trio plan to release a new song next month.
Pitchfork reports that the news was revealed by Kathleen Hanna on the Talkhouse Music Podcast during a conversation with Perfect Pussy's Meredith Graves. Hanna said: "Le Tigre just got back together in the studio — you have the scoop — for a special song that we are going to release hopefully, like, early to mid-October. I will not say what it's about, but it's been really fun working with them again."
Coming as something of a bummer, it was later clarified in the conversation that the band currently have no plans to record a new album or go on tour, sticking solely to releasing the standalone track.
Le Tigre also released their Live! EP back in 2012. Hanna has spent 2016 working with Bikini Kill's Kathi Wilcox as the Julie Ruin, releasing Hit Reset earlier this year.
