Presented in association with Banquet Records, the gig will take place at Pryzm on August 24, the same week that they will play a landmark date at London’s Gunnersbury Park. Support for the show comes from MUNA and Ethel Cain, and tickets are available now.

Earlier this month, Boygenius shared ‘Not Strong Enough’, the latest single taken from their upcoming LP. The track followed the first three surprise singles – ‘$20’, ‘Emily I’m Sorry’ and ‘True Blue’ – which were released at the beginning of the year.
The trio debuted a live rendition of ‘Not Strong Enough’, on March 1, when they performed as part of the annual Tibet House Benefit concert at New York City’s Carnegie Hall. This marked their first live show in four years.
Elsewhere, ahead of the 2023 SXSW festival last week, the indie girl band also surprised fans with an unexpected performance at Austin Airport. Check out footage of the moment below.

‘The Album’ marks Boygenius’ first full-length album and follows on from their self-titled EP, which was released in 2018. At the time, NME gave the debut a five-star review, stating: “it would be astonishing regardless of the length of time it took to make, but it becomes even more so when you learn these songs were created in a matter of days”.
Alongside their UK tour dates, Bridgers, Baker and Dacus are set to embark on a series of North American headline shows. They will also perform at festivals including Coachella and the Connect Festival in Edinburgh. Find tickets for upcoming shows here.
