Carrie Brownstein is releasing her memoir, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl, on October 27th. The book will detail Brownstein’s life as a female guitarist in a male-dominated rock and roll music industry. “This book intimately captures what it feels like to be a young woman in a rock and roll band, from her days at the dawn of the underground feminist punk-rock movement that would define music and pop culture in the 1990s through today,” according to Penguin Books’ website. The Sleater-Kinney guitarist told NME that the book will end right around the time Sleater-Kinney went on hiatus. Brownstein stated that the memoir will not mention her role on the hit television series, Portlandia.
Sleater-Kinney dropped seven studio albums before they went on hiatus in 2006. Those seven albums include Sleater-Kinney, Call the Doctor, Dig Me Out, The Hot Rock, All Hands on the Bad One, One Best, and The Woods. In 2014, the band reunited and released their new project No Cities To Love in January 2015. No Cities To Love peaked on the Billboard Tastemaker Albums chart at Number 1, and Number 2 on the US Independent Albums chart. The 10-track album features the songs “Price Tag,” “Surface Envy,” “A New Wave,” and “Bury Our Friends.”
The rock band will travel to Europe for a show at the London Roundhouse on March 23th. The following days, Sleater-Kinney will perform at Manchester Albert Hall (March 24), Glasgow O2 ABC 2 (March 25), and Dublin Vicar Street (March 26). Next month, Sleater-Kinney will travel back to the US for a show in Dallas (TX) on April 16th. They will also perform in Austin (TX), Houston (TX), New Orleans (LA), Raleigh (NC), Nashville (TN), St. Louis (MO), Columbia (MO), Kansas City (MO), and several other cities in North America during the month of April.
In May, Sleater-Kinney will continue their North America tour dates. They will also make a few stops at a couple of music festivals in May and July. On May 28th, the band will perform at the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona, Spain. Sleater-Kinney will also play at thePitchfork Music Festival at Union Park in Chicago, Illinois on July 17th through July 19th.
