Black feminist punk band Big Joanie announces their debut North American tour and have also released a brand new “Cactus Tree” live performance video filmed at Hermitage Works Studios, offering fans a taste of their dazzling live show.

Big Joanie released their new album Back Home, on November 4, 2022, via Kill Rock Stars (US) and Thurston Moore and Eva Prinz’s Daydream Library Series (UK). With their boundary-breaking approach to punk, radical politics, and an appreciation for earworm melodies, Big Joanie are set to become important voices for a new generation of punks.
