from the Tizzy site, June 13, 2006:
After nearly thirteen years, hundreds of shows, four CDs, two singles, and multiple compilation contributions, Tizzy is calling it a day. Our fearless leader, Jen Stavely, has taken this baby from conception through implementation, and she has decided it's time to put her creation to bed. Breaking up is too harsh a description. We are preferring to call it a graceful retirement! So, to you, our friends, our fans, our website visitors, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the support you've given us over the years. It will be a very bittersweet transition.
from the Sleater-Kinney site, June 27, 2006:
After eleven years as a band, Sleater-Kinney have decided to go on indefinite hiatus. The upcoming summer shows will be our last. As of now, there are no plans for future tours or recordings. We feel lucky to have had the support of many wonderful people over the years. We want to thank everyone who has worked with us, written kind words about us, performed with us, and inspired us. But mostly we want to extend our gratitude to our amazing fans. You have been a part of our story from the beginning. We could not have made our music without your enthusiasm, passion, and loyalty. It is you who have made the entire journey worthwhile.
