Sleater-Kinney Sets Dates For Spring Tour

With its fifth album, "All Hands On The Bad One," due out in May, Sleater-Kinney has just announced dates for an extended spring tour to support the new record.

Sleater-Kinney will launch the tour on April 29 with a hometown gig in Olympia, Washington that will also serve as a benefit for Ladyfest, a six-day music conference slated for August 1-6 in Olympia.
