Casting call for the new Corin Tucker Band video + "Groundhog Day" on Bandcamp

July 23, 2012

"Alicia J. Rose & Co. are making a fun new music video for the awesome Corin Tucker Band (ex Sleater-Kinney) and we are looking to partially fill a music venue with early 80's punk/new wave concert goers. Corin and her band will be playing Polystyrene and the X-Ray Spex. It's going to be a blast. Does this sound like a punk fantasy come true? Its gonna be. You would need to be available Sunday 7/29 from 11am-5pm and be willing to go punk or new wave for the day. Unpaid, but HIGH GLORY. You will help teen girls crowd surf and Corin feel like its 1980ish at CBGB. If you are interested and available - and 21+ - please RSVP here AND send an email with headshot and contact info to ctbmusicvideo@gmail.com - this is gonna be a fun one!"

In other Corin Tucker Band news we added "Groundhog Day" to bandcamp for all you FLAC and .wav file fans out there. Enjoy!

Corin Tucker Band to release Kill My Blues on September 18th

June 18, 2012

The Corin Tucker Band is set to return with Kill My BluesKill My Blues finds former Sleater-Kinney frontwoman Tucker returning to her riot grrrl sonic roots along with band members Seth Lorinczi (Golden Bears), Sara Lund (Unwound) and Mike Clark (Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks). The group will tour the east coast this fall, please see a list of dates below.
Of writing and recording the new album, Tucker notes that Kill My Blues was a group effort. “After the past two years playing together, traveling and making music, I think we’re more comfortable,” she says. “We collaborated on every song on this record and no one was shy about their ideas. I think you can hear that sense of joy and abandon in the songs.”
Best-known for her role in punk rock mainstay Sleater-Kinney, Tucker also played in the influential early-`90s rock group Heavens to Betsy. Recently she has appeared alongside Sleater-Kinney bandmate Carrie Brownstein in the IFC comedy Portlandia. Corin lives with her two children and filmmaker husband Lance Bangs in Portland.
