Two years after 1984, Chicago-based band Joan Of Arc (Tim Kinsella, Theo Katsaounis, Melina Ausikaitis, Bobby Burg) have announced the release of a new album which features frequent collaborators Jeremy Boyle, Jenny Pulse, Nate Kinsella, and Todd Mattei. Tim Melina Theo Bobby is their final album and it will be out on December 4th via Joyful Noise Recordings.
We already shared “Destiny Revision”; “Something Kind” is a new excerpt. “I’ve never been a fan of the Manfred Mann’s Earth Band song ‘Blinded by the Light,’ even after I found out that the lyrics weren’t “revved up like a douche” like I thought. Same goes for Eric Burdon & War’s ‘Spill the Wine,’” Ausikaitis explains. “I started writing ‘Something Kind’ in a light hearted jokey mood. But as I wrote I began getting angrier and angrier. I felt that the women in those songs were incidental. And that, at times in my life, I had been made to feel that way.”
