After a legendary 25-year career, Joan of Arc will release their final album, Tim Melina Theo Bobby, on December 4th, 2020 via Joyful Noise Recordings.
Written and recorded by the band—Melina Ausikaitis, Bobby Burg, Theo Katsaounis, and Tim Kinsella—and featuring frequent collaborators Jeremy Boyle, Jenny Pulse, Nate Kinsella, and Todd Mattei, Joan of Arc’s final bow is the product of a band recognizing its run had reached its end, and was made knowing that this would be the group’s last.
Writer and poet Hanif Abdurraqib is a witness to the Joan of Arc experience, writing in tribute, “if one listens closely enough on this album, you hear the evolution of a set of musicians, who still have so much to offer the world, even if it isn’t in this container that some of us have gotten used to hearing them in; as Good Fuck, the duo of Tim Kinsella and Jenny Pulse, or Aitis Band, the project of Melina Ausikaitis, Theo Katsaounis, and Bobby Burg. There’s a dexterity, a calm, and a maturity to the sounds running through this album that have me excited to see whatever is on the horizon.”
