It was revealed today that R.E.M.’s Peter Buck and Sleater-Kinney/Corin Tucker Band leader Corin Tucker have formed a new ‘supergroup’ they have currently named super-Earth, according to a story by Ned Lannamann in the Portland Mercury.

super-Earth also includes Buck’s cohorts Scott McCaughey, Bill Rieflin, and Kurt Bloch; the name super-Earth may change, the Portland Mercury reports.

The group’s first public appearance will take place at Portland’s Secret Society Ballroom tonight and Wednesday night.

Buck is headlining the gig.

The group is “performing an entire set of soon-to-be-album-sized new compositions by said Buck/Tucker combine,” McCaughey told the Portland Mercury.

I can’t wait to hear the songs, and the album.
