Sleater-Kinney have shared a new track called 'ANIMAL'. You can hear it above.

The first new material from the group since the release of their latest album, the St. Vincent-produced The Center Won't Hold, which came out in August, the track features drummer Janet Weiss who left the group in July.

"'ANIMAL' is a song about rebellion, retaliation and rage," the group's Corin Tucker said in a 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."

Drummer Angie Boylan has replaced Weiss for the group's upcoming tour dates. They'll play a number of European dates in February 2020.
