Touch And Go/Quarterstick are getting mighty peeved at people asking them when (not if?) Slint - currently preparing for their Spiderland tour (click here for all dates) - are going to release new material.
A post on the Chicago labels' website reads:
People are starting to ask us about a new album from Slint. Here's the deal. Slint has been preparing for shows this summer. They want to play music together and have decided to work on new material. Once they find a rehearsal space (in Louisville, KY), they can begin this process. Please do not start rumors about an impending Slint recording. Anything new will take a while. With a little luck, Touch and Go will have something to release in the next few years.
Fingers crossed? Do bears do their business in barky surroundings?
