Sleater-Kinney are on the verge of kicking off a tour in support of their latest LP The Center Won’t Hold, and today, they share the non-album track "ANIMAL."

“‘ANIMAL’ is a song about rebellion, retaliation and rage,” Corin Tucker said in a press statement. “It is a song about letting go of all politeness and filters and letting the ‘animal’ side speak. The vocals for this song were recorded in St. Vincent’s home studio, a perfect place to unleash a voice like this.”

Their North American tour kicks off in Spokane next week, with drummer Angie Boylan (previously of Freezing Cold, Aye Nako, Little Lungs, Cheeky) stepping in for Janet Weiss, who left the band earlier this year

Check out "ANIMAL" below, available now via Mom + Pop Records.
