boygenius announce debut UK live shows
boygenius have today announced details of their first ever UK headline shows – with two huge outdoor dates confirmed at The Piece Hall.
The American indie supergroup – comprised of Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus – will play The Piece Hall on Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 August.
Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday March 3 from ticketmaster.co.uk
Nicky Chance-Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “This is another truly incredible coup for The Piece Hall. boygenius are rightly regarded as the world’s most exciting indie supergroup and their debut album is one of the most eagerly-awaited releases of the year.
“We can’t wait to welcome Julien, Phoebe and Lucy – three incredible and super-talented female artists – here to our wonderful venue, which will be the perfect backdrop for what will undoubtedly be one of the must-see shows of the year.”
boygenius recently announced their long-awaited return with the release of three singles from their upcoming album, the record: $20, Emily I’m Sorry, and True Blue. It’s the first full-length project from the band to follow their self-produced, self-titled EP back in 2018.
the record was produced and written by boygenius, and recorded at Shangri-la Studios in Malibu, California. The band discussed the album for the first time recently in their immediately iconic Rolling Stone cover story, with more to come ahead of its release on 31 March.
Album pre-order registration is open now, ahead of general release on 3 March at 10am GMT via https://shopuk.xboygeniusx.com.
With more special guests for both shows to be announced soon, Ethel Cain has been confirmed to open for boygenius at The Piece Hall.
Raised in the deep south of the USA, Ethel Cain’s “sound defies definition [straddling] a line between alternative rock, folk, pop, and even country” (Billboard).
After writing, producing and mixing her EP Inbred from the basement of a church in Indiana, it was released last year to critical acclaim, receiving overwhelming support from Pitchfork, Paper Magazine, VICE, Zane Lowe, YouTube, SoundCloud, and Tidal. Recently, Spotify selected Ethel as their first ever transgender EQUAL Ambassador for March 2022, a distinction shared with Billie Eilish, Mickey Guyton, and STAYC.
boygenius and Ethel Cain join the likes of Madness, Sting, Rag’N’Bone Man, James, Embrace, War On Drugs, The Lumineers and Ministry of Sound Classical among the 2023 headliners for ‘Live at The Piece Hall’ with many more artists still to be announced.
