Members of R.E.M., Sleater-Kinney and Nirvana are recording new material together it has been revealed.

Peter Buck, Corin Tucker and Krist Novoselic were revealed to be working together in the group Super-Earth via a tweet from American filmmaker Lance Bangs.

Tucker and Buck had previously announced that they had formed Super-Earth and were writing material with guitarist Scott McCaughey (Minus 5), drummer Bill Rieflin (Swans, Ministry) and guitarist Kurt Bloch. The group made their live debut on the 30th of April in Portland.

The gig at the Secret Society Ballroom saw the band performing twelve new songs of “soon-to-be-album-sized new compositions”. There is no current news as to when, or if, the band will release an album, or if Novoselic will perform live with them in the future.

Buck and Tucker have collaborated in the past, with Tucker providing backing vocals on Buck’s self-titled 2012 solo album. Similarly, Buck was on stage when Sleater-Kinney reunited for a live performance in late 2013.

Bangs captioned the image in his tweet, pictured above, “Ex-REM, Sleater-Kinney, Nirvana, Flipper, Swans, Ministry, Young Fresh Fellows studio session.”
