Born out of the feminist punk movement of the Great Pacific Northwest, seminal 90s band Sleater-Kinney have returned after a ten year hiatus.

A New Wave focuses on this return, on the fans who have discovered them, and stayed with them throughout their absence.

Sleater-Kinney are a band who have managed to inspire and influence whole new generation of young people in their absence, suggesting that the thirst for powerful, intelligent feminist-punk is still alive, well and thriving.

The band played a sold-out show at the Camden Roundhouse in March 2015, their first visit to London in a decade.
