Released by: Jade Tree

Joan of Arc's fifth full-length album and last for Jade Tree.

Features Mike Kinsella on drums and bass.

Fifth full-length album from Joan of Arc. Companion album to In Rape Fantasy and Terror Sex We Trust.

Tim Kinsella, Joan of Arc‘s lead man, has amassed a collection of songs culled from a variety of sources – sketches begun on his computer at home and collaborations with kindred spirits from coast to coast – and given them life.

Further gussied up with help from a plethora of fellow Chicago luminaries, this is a career culmination of Joan of Arc's musical meanderings and genius in a concise, focused, and mature realization.
