Indie rock trio Sleater-Kinney is planning on an "indefinite hiatus". "After 11 years as a band, Sleater-Kinney have decided to go on indefinite hiatus," according to the statement released Tuesday June 27th, 2006 by Sub Pop, the band's Seattle-based record label, and posted on the band's Web site.
"The upcoming summer shows will be our last. As of now, there are no plans for future tours or recordings." The girl-power punk rockers, however, still have five summer shows coming up, including Lollapalooza in Chicago on Aug. 4, where they are set to say their final goodbyes.
The statement did not give a reason for the decision, and band members could not be reached for comment.
