Touring in support of their latest full-length record, He’s Got The Whole This Land is Your Land in His Hands, Chicago’s Joan of Arc will be making their way to Seattle for a headlining performance at the Vera Project on February 14th. Released on January 20th of this year through revered indie rock label Joyful Noise Recordings, He’s Got The Whole This Land is Your Land in His Hands has been noted for continuing to push the envelope of Joan of Arc’s signature sound, which sits at a crossroads between emo and indie rock, while giving both styles their own eccentric and technical spin.
The 11-track album was recorded live in various locations throughout Chicago: an empty former recording studio (Soma), a basketball court of a downtown hotel, an art gallery, an industrial space on the west side of Chicago, and a friend’s AirBnB. Following the release of this album, Joan of Arc have been featured in the popular Our First 100 Days, a series which has been releasing one new song from a reputable underground or indie act every day for the first 100 days of Donald Trump being in office. Their contribution, “Vampire E.R.,” can be streamed via Bandcamp here.
Tickets to the show are priced at $12.00, and can be purchased through Ticketfly. Magas and Scarves will be opening the show. For more information, consult the Vera Project’s official website. Watch the music video for “This Must Be the Placenta” below.
