Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker Shed Light on Possible Sleater-Kinney Reunion
Published Jan 06, 2012Between unfurling rawk riffs with her supergroup Wild Flag and crackin' smiles on comedy program Portlandia, Carrie Brownstein's plate is pretty full these days, but a new interview hints that she might have some extra time to spare to revisit her indie roots and reunite with her old band Sleater-Kinney.
Speaking with Wired, the guitarist admitted that Sleater-Kinney, who went on an indefinite hiatus back in 2006, have been on her mind lately, and she's even discussed the possibility of getting back together with former co-writer Corin Tucker.
"Corin and I are still the best of friends, and we have been talking a lot about Sleater-Kinney as something to do again," said Brownstein. If they decide to give it another shot, it shouldn't be too hard to get drummer Janet Weiss on board, considering she currently pounds the skins in Wild Flag.
An e-mail from Tucker confirms a reunion is something she "would love to do someday," but considering she has her own Corin Tucker Band on the go as well, it's just a matter of finding the time to put aside for the potentially rebooted project.
"I'm working on a record with my band this year, and Wild Flag is touring, and there's a couple of other things happening too," she told Wired.
Sleater-Kinney's last album was 2005's The Woods.
