Joan Of Arc New Album, Tour Dates

The new Joan Of Arc CD, Boo! Human, will be released in May 21st on Polyvinyl Records.

Frontman Tim Kinsella writes songs constantly, but now feels little urgency to put records together and expel them upon an indifferent and cynical world. By combining one week of studio time, a stack of songs and a sign-up sheet allowing participants to drop in whenever they could, each track on Boo! Human is as wildly different and uniquely constructed as the groups who produced them. The combination of 14 musicians whose previous collaborations include Wilco, Iron & Wine, Bonnie Prince Billy, Beth Orton and Prefuse 73 yields a truly diverse record that is as intense as it is intimate.

Marked by intricate guitar melodies, noncognitive wailing and tense instrumentals, Boo! Human is Joan of Arc’s most accessible, cohesive album since 1997’s How Memory Works. From the addictive syncopated “Laughter Reflected Back” to the unignorable, poetic “9/11 2,” Joan of Arc truly proves that doing it their way is the right way. We’ve got a copy of the new album, so expect a proper review shortly!
