Sleater-Kinney Walk the Beat this Fall

Olympia, Washington-based indie darlings Sleater-Kinney will release their sixth full length on August 20 via Kill Rock Stars. According to Pitchforkmedia, the first pressing of the album, entitled One Beat, will be packaged with a bonus disc containing some ìextra goodies.î To celebrate the release, Sleater-Kinney will play three shows in July before rocketing across the States for a full-blown tour in September. The One Beat tour is scheduled to kick off in Denver on the most ominous of all possible dates, September 11.
