Path of Wellness is the tenth studio album by the American rock band Sleater-Kinney. The album was released on June 11, 2021 by Mom + Pop Music.[2][3]


Following a nine-year hiatus, the American punk rock band Sleater-Kinney announced their return with the track "Bury Our Friends" on October 19, 2014.[4] On January 20, 2015, they released No Cities to Love via Sub Pop Records, the first Sleater-Kinney album since 2005's The Woods.[5] Three years later, singer and guitarist Carrie Brownstein told Pitchfork that Sleater-Kinney was working on a follow-up effort to No Cities To Love, but that they were "going to do this very slowly".[6] In January 2019, Brownstein confirmed to NPR that the album was produced by St. Vincent and would be released later in the year.[7]

On July 1, 2019, drummer Janet Weiss announced over Instagram that she was leaving Sleater-Kinney, saying, "The band is heading in a new direction and it is time for me to move on."[8] Sleater-Kinney's ninth studio album, The Center Won't Hold, was released a month and a half later, on August 16.[9] There was some speculation among fans that Weiss had left Sleater-Kinney due to St. Vincent's involvement in the new record, which Brownstein denied, saying that it was originally Weiss's idea to work with her.[10] Responding to a fan on Instagram, Brownstein added, "She left. We asked her to stay. We tried. It's hard and sad."[11] When Sleater-Kinney went on tour that September to promote The Center Won't Hold, they recruited Angie Boylan of Aye Nako as their touring drummer.[12] That November, Weiss appeared on the Trap Set With Joe Wong podcast, saying that she had left Sleater-Kinney because the "roles changed within the band", and that she was "just the drummer now" as opposed to "a creative equal" with Tucker and Brownstein.[13]

Release and promotion

On May 11, 2021, Sleater-Kinney announced the album title, cover art, and release date for Path of Wellness, and promised their fans "so much more, soon".[14] Accompanying the album announcement was the release of Path of Wellness's lead single and music video, "Worry With You".[15] The video, directed by Alberta Poon, features a young couple, played by Fabi Reyna and Megan Watson, attempting to cohabitate in their undersized house. Tucker and Brownstein make cameo appearances as an actor in a pharmaceutical commercial and as a television fitness instructor, respectively.[16] On May 26, the band released their follow-up single and video to "Worry With You", titled "High in the Grass".[17] Directed by Kelly Sears, the video for "High in the Grass" provides a psychedelic element, with trees with eyes and a number of decapitated figures, both dancing and attempting cardiopulmonary resuscitation, before culminating in a dance party.[18] The final single to be released in advance of Path of Wellness was "Method", which came out on June 9.[19] The song was accompanied by a Lance Bangs-directed lyric video.[20]

To accompany the June 11 release of Path of Wellness, Sleater-Kinney announced a variety show-style livestream on Amazon Music's Twitch channel, beginning at 9 p.m. (ET) on June 10.[21] Hosted by Chris Hewett, the livestream featured "interviews, live performances and a fortune teller weighing in on [the band's] future prospects", as well as a variety of guest appearances from celebrities and musicians such as Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, and Matt Berninger from the National.[21] On June 25, Sleater-Kinney released a live extended play titled Live At The Hallowed Halls, featuring recordings of the four tracks on Path of Wellness that they played during the livestream event.[22] Sleater-Kinney promoted Path of Wellness with two other live and recorded events. On June 16, Sleater-Kinney appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform "Worry With You". Rather than playing in front of a live studio audience, the band submitted a pre-taped performance from an abandoned skate park.[23] The next day, Tucker and Brownstein appeared on the Audible service Words + Music to discuss "30 years of shared history making music and making noise".[24]

Sleater-Kinney ist eine US-amerikanische Indie-Rock-Band aus Olympia (Washington). Das Frauen-Trio bildete sich im Zusammenhang mit der Riot-Grrrl-Bewegung der 1990er-Jahre und gab im Juni 2006 seine Auflösung bekannt, fand aber später wieder zusammen.[1] Der Name der Band bezieht sich auf die Sleater Kinney Road, eine Ausfahrt der US-Bundesautobahn 5 (I-5) zwischen den Städten Seattle und Portland.


Sleater-Kinney wurde von Corin Tucker (Gesang, Gitarre) und Carrie Brownstein (Gitarre, Gesang) gegründet. Seit 1997 war Janet Weiss (von der Band Quasi) Schlagzeugerin. Brownstein war Mitglied der Queercore-Band Excuse Seventeen. Tucker spielte früher bei der Riot-Grrrl-Band Heavens to Betsy. Vor der Veröffentlichung ihres Debütalbums Sleater-Kinney auf dem Label Chainsaw Records (1995) hatten die Mitglieder der Band in verschiedenen anderen Formationen gespielt. Das erste Album wurde von den Kritikern positiv aufgenommen, ebenso wie die folgenden Veröffentlichungen Call the Doctor (1996, Matador Records) und Dig Me Out (Matador Records 1997). Dig Me Out ist ein dynamisches Rockalbum, dessen Texte einfach, dennoch vieldeutig und zielstrebig ansprechen. Dig Me Out brachte der Band Angebote von größeren Labels ein. Sleater-Kinney besannen sich jedoch auf Ihre Wurzeln in der Szene-Community mit engem persönlichen Kontakt zum Publikum und lehnten ab. Das Nachfolgealbum The Hot Rock (1999, alle Matador Records/Kill Rock Stars) zeichnete sich durch eine größere musikalische Reife aus, konnte aber – ebenso wie die folgenden Alben All Hands on the Bad One und One Beat (beide Kill Rock Stars Records) – nicht an die Erfolge von Dig Me Out anschließen.

Die Band behielt immer einen starken Bezug zu ihren Wurzeln in der Independent-Musik und dem feministischen Gedankengut, das sie prägte. Dafür wurden sie von Le Tigre in dem Song Hot Topic als Impulsgeber der damaligen Frauenbewegung geehrt. Alle Alben seit Call the Doctor (1996) wurden auf dem Independent-Label Kill Rock Stars veröffentlicht, während ihr siebtes und letztes Album The Woods auf Sub Pop erschien.

Am 27. Juni 2006 verkündete die Band auf ihrer Homepage, dass das Projekt Sleater-Kinney für unbestimmte Zeit auf Eis gelegt würde.

Am 20. Oktober 2014 erschien eine neue Vinyl-Box Start Together mit allen sieben Alben der Band, zuzüglich einer weißen 7-Inch-Schallplatte. Kurz darauf gab man die Reunion bekannt und veröffentlichte am 20. Januar 2015 das Album No Cities to Love, das laut Online-Radiosender ByteFM den „songgewordenen Pamphleten für feminine Selbstbestimmung, Basisdemokratie und gegen die patriarchalischen gesellschaftlichen Strukturen“ eine Dimension von Kapitalismuskritik und sozialer Empathie hinzufügt.[2]

Im Mai 2019 kam eine neue Single heraus, Hurry On Home, Lead-Single/Vorbote des Albums The Center Won’t Hold (2019), das im August erschien. Als Produzentin verlieh Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) dem Schliff. Die Musikerinnen klingen schroffer und spannungsreicher darin, sind Wagnisse eingegangen, haben sich laut Kritikern neu erfunden. Im Song Love steht als Kernzeile der Gedanke: „Es gibt nichts Furchteinflößenderes und Obszöneres, als einen vom Leben gezeichneten Körper, der verlangt, gesehen zu werden.“ Im Schluss-Song „Broken“ schildert Corin Tucker ihre Emotionen angesichts der Anhörung von Christine Blasey Ford zu den Missbrauchsvorwürfen gegen den von Trump durchgesetzten US-Supreme-Court-Richter Brett Kavanaugh. Wenige Wochen zuvor gab allerdings die Schlagzeugerin Janet Weiss auf Twitter ihren bevorstehenden Bandausstieg bekannt. Im Frühjahr 2020 haben Sleater-Kinney eine Europa- und Deutschland-Tournee vor.[3][4]

Nach Sleater-Kinney

Gegenwärtig spielt Tucker in der Band Cadallaca mit Sarah Dougher. 2010 veröffentlichte sie mit der Corin Tucker Band das Album 1.000 Years. Janet Weiss spielte bis 2011 als Schlagzeugerin bei Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, der Band des Pavement-Frontmannes Stephen Malkmus. Carrie Brownstein und Janet Weiss spielen seit 2010 mit Mary Timony (Helium) und Rebecca Cole (The Minders) in der Band Wild Flag. Brownstein wirkt zusammen mit Fred Armisen maßgeblich an der Comedy-Serie Portlandia mit, in der Corin Tucker auch mit einem Gastauftritt vertreten ist (als Bandmitglied von Echo Echo, Ep. 5/1). Brownstein hat außerdem eine wiederkehrende Rolle in der Fernsehserie Transparent, in der sie eine Freundin der Hauptfigur Ali Pfefferman (gespielt von Gaby Hoffmann) verkörpert.
