Next week, Sleater-Kinney will release a box set titled Start Together, featuring all seven of their studio albums, via Sub Pop. But there may be more to the story than just remastered and re-released vinyl albums. In fact, Wondering Sound points to a tracklist on Italian website DVD Cineshop that lists “Bury Our Friends” as a bonus track to The Woods. And Twitter user Kevin Zidek tweeted that the box set comes with a bonus seven-inch, labeled with the date “1/20/15”. This certainly seems intriguing, if it doesn’t make fans like us outright giddy. It could possibly be the release date of an eighth Sleater-Kinney album, which is certainly a possibility. Or, perhaps even more exciting, the date of a reunion show, which I can assure you several of us would pay good money and travel a great distance to see. We most certainly would, but we don’t necessarily want to count our chickens just yet.
The plot thickens, however. Wondering Sound also tweeted a picture that certainly looks like a Sleater-Kinney album, cover, which apparently appears when you look up the track on Shazam. Take a look at that below.
Watch this space as more information is released. In the meantime, read our recent Celebrate the Catalog feature for an in-depth look at every Sleater-Kinney album.
