OAF Touring and Mistletone presents
Mistletone and Remote Control are thrilled to announce the debut Australian tour for Lucy Dacus and her band. Catch the songwriter and member of indie-supergroup boygenius tour Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and By The Meadow festival this March. Tour dates & links can be found below.
Lucy Dacus is done thinking small. Two years after her 2016 debut, No Burden, won her unanimous acclaim as one of rock's most promising new voices, she returned with Historian, a remarkably assured 10-track statement of intent, which topped several end of year lists and is out now on Matador / Remote Control.
Historian finds Dacus unafraid to take on the big questions —the life-or-death reckonings, and the ones that just feel that way. It's a record full of bracing realisations, tearful declarations and moments of hard-won peace, expressed in lyrics that feel destined for countless yearbook quotes and first tattoos.
"This is the album I needed to make," says Dacus, who views Historian as her definitive statement as a songwriter and musician. "Everything after this is a bonus."
Dacus and her band recorded Historian in Nashville last March, re-teaming with No Burden producer Collin Pastore, and mixed it a few months later with A-list studio wizard John Congleton. The sound they created, with substantial input from multi-instrumentalist and live guitarist Jacob Blizard, is far richer and fuller than the debut—an outward flowering of dynamic, living, breathing rock and roll.
