On the eve of their wildly anticipated return, BIG DEAL MUSIC and BMG have signed indie icons SLEATER-KINNEY to a co-publishing agreement. The band's new album, "No Cities To Love," comes out next TUESDAY on SUB POP, its first release since 2005's "The Woods."
"We are thrilled to continue our long-term relationship with SLEATER-KINNEY," said BMG CHRYSALIS' DAVID HIRSHLAND. "Partnering with BIG DEAL is a very exciting prospect as we together look to maximize the reach of this new album which is already proving to be a major statement in the world of rock music in 2015."
"Creatively, this is a special moment for a singular, massively important band," adds BIG DEAL MUSIC's DAVE AYERS. "To have an opportunity to contribute to the efforts of everyone involved is a rare privilege. The record is a real watershed, and there's a whole new generation of fans about to be born right before our eyes."
Originally formed in OLYMPIA, WA by CARRIE BROWNSTEIN and CORIN TUCKER, then joined by JANET WEISS in 1996, the band made seven records between 1995 and 2005, routinely topping both the college radio charts and critical year-end "best" lists. They've been lauded as "AMERICA's best rock band" by GREIL MARCUS in TIME MAGAZINE, and "AMERICA's best punk band. EVER" by ROLLING STONE.
