Despite Janet Weiss's departure, the Sleater-Kinney show must go on, which today means a new single from the newfound duo. Stream the single “Can I Go On” below. Carrie Brownstein states via a press release:

“In this song, a woman’s desire is used against her, so she turns it into a sinister infectiousness. The narrator finds herself on the brink of self-annihilation, grappling with the paradox of an internal darkness at odds with the pressure to outwardly perform modes of joy, relatability, and likability.”

Sleater-Kinney will released their new album, The Center Won’t Hold, on August 16 via Mom + Pop. The band play November 23rd and 24th at the Paramount Theatre, although a replacement for Weiss has yet to be named.
