PORTLAND Ore. (KPTV) - Iconic Pacific Northwest band Sleater-Kinney is sharing details of their upcoming 11th album.

The album titled “Little Rope” comes out Jan. 19 from Loma Vista.

Sleater-Kinney has been fronted by fronted by Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker since 1994. The band briefly broke up in 2006 before reforming in 2014 and releasing albums No Cities to Love, The Center Won’t Hold, and Path of Wellness.

Between the breakup and reforming of the band, Brownstein also created and began starring in IFC sketch series Portlandia, along with Saturday Night Live’s Fred Armisen.

The new album is the first since the death of Brownstein’s mother and stepfather in a car accident while vacationing in Italy in the fall of 2022.  According to the Associated Press, the American embassy, unable to reach Brownstein, called her listed emergency contact -- her bandmate, Tucker.

“I just needed to feel my fingers on something that was solid,” Brownstein told AP. “When people leave this Earth, you are aware of what is still here, and what is tactile versus what you’ll never touch again.”

With the release of the new album comes a new tour as well, with a stop in Portland at the Crystal Ballroom on April 5.
