London trio Big Joanie release their new album Back Home on Friday via Thurston Moore and Eva Prinz’s Daydream Library Series (UK) and Kill Rock Stars (US). It's a record that mixes indie rock, post-punk and synthpop with impassioned lyricism; “We were really ruminating on the idea of a home and what it means,” says guitarist Stephanie Phillips. “It’s about the different ideas of home, whether that’s here in the UK, back in Africa or the Caribbean, or a place that doesn’t really exist; it’s neither here nor there." You can check out four songs from the album now.

The band have also just announced their first-ever NYC show, which happens at Union Pool on May 25. That's their only announced North American date so far, stay tuned for more. In the meantime they have UK dates this fall, including Pitchfork London, shows with Courtney Barnett, and more. All dates are listed below.
