Two Chances to See Joan of Arc Perform Live This Weekend

January 27th, 2017

Expertly blending punk’s volume and dynamics with post-rocks atmospherics, Joan of Arc have been anchored by Tim Kinsella (vocals and guitar) ever since forming more than two decades ago in Chicago. He’s currently backed by an original member, Jeremy Boyle (guitar), and Bobby Burg (bass), Melina Ausikaitis (guitar and vocals) and Theo Katsaounis (drums)—and the band’s first new full-length album in five years, He’s Got the Whole This Land Is Your Land in His Hands (stream it below), just came out last week. Joan of Arc (above, their new video for “Two-Toothed Troll”) “ask a very timely question: ‘What the fuck? Rarely have they had their finger so squarely on the pulse,” says PopMatters. “Patience and collaboration continue to focus and invigorate Joan of Arc.” And with new music comes a new tour. Catch them opening for American Football on Saturday at Terminal 5 and playing the early show at Mercury Lounge on Sunday.
