Big Joanie head to the US for headline dates

The Black feminist punk band ready a stateside tour for second album ‘Back Home’

Hot off the heels of a successful UK tour, Black feminist punk band Big Joanie are off to the US for a run of dates.

Their first US tour will see them playing in support of second album ‘Back Home’, beginning with a 19 March show at Denver’s Larimer Lounge.

The March and May shows have already had to be expanded, with the trio adding a second Brooklyn date at Baby’s All Right, after their Union Pool gig quickly sold out.

The latest album, the follow up to 2018’s brilliant ‘Sistahs’, features the singles ‘In My Arms’ and ‘Happier Still’.

Speaking to Punktuation last year, singer and guitarist Stephanie Phillips explained how their new album differs from their debut.

“We took our time recording this album and worked around different things that were going on in our lives. We wanted to try and incorporate new instruments and write in different ways, playing around with different synthesizers and drum machines.”

“‘Back Home’ is a much more polished album than our debut, mainly because we were able to think about how we want to present ourselves more.”

Information about Big Joanie’s US tour tickets is available on their website, alongside details of January/February dates in the Netherlands and France
