Former members of R.E.M. and Nirvana are joining members of Sleater-Kinney for a new supergroup called Super-Earth.

The new group, featuring former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, Sleater-Kinney lead singer Corin Tucker and ex-Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, is rounded out by Minus 5 guitarist Scott McCaughey, Fastbacks guitarist Kurt Block and ex-Ministry drummer Bill Rieflin.

The band gave fans a chance to hear a dozen new songs at Portland's Secret Society.

"The new material, speedy and loud, was full of power chords, enthusiasm and the occasional signature Buck arpeggio - less punk rock than power-pop but always knife-sharp," wrote a reviewer for the Oregonian that attended the first show.

Filmmaker Lance Bangs first posted a photo of the band on Twitter, along with the caption "Ex-R.E.M., Sleater-Kinney, Nirvana, Flipper, Swans, Ministry, Young Fresh Fellows studio session."
