Sleater-Kinney/R.E.M. Supergroup Filthy Friends Share New "Despierata" Video
The group's debut album 'Invitation' arrives later this month
Published Aug 01, 2017Last year, we saw the birth of Sleater-Kinney/R.E.M. supergroup Filthy Friends, and with the project's debut album coming out later this month, they are showing it off with a new video.
Filthy Friends features Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker and R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, as well as Pacific Northwest heavy-hitters Scott McCaughey, Bill Rieflin and Kurt Bloch. They first premiered their track "Despierata" as part of the anti-Trump campaign 30 Days, 30 Songs, but that's the track they've now revisited for the new video.

As for Filthy Friends' new album, it's called Invitation and will arrive on August 25 via Kill Rock Stars.
