Boygenius have reportedly announced their hiatus, after a huge 12 months for the group.

The trio – Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker – are said to have made the announcement at a pair of “secret” acoustic shows in Los Angeles last night (February 1).

According to reputable fan account, boygenius source, the group told the audience that they are “going away for the foreseeable future”, although an official announcement has yet to come.

The same account also documented the second of last night’s shows from the group, where Dacus is said to have remarked it was the band’s “last show” and that they were “feeling it”.

When they played ‘Not Strong Enough’, Dacus reportedly claimed it was their last song, before Baker added “not EVER”, leaving the idea of a future reunion open.

With all three artists having successful solo careers in their own right too, it’s arguable that a hiatus was the natural conclusion after all touring and promotional duties were completed for their acclaimed 2023 debut album The Record.

But fans looking for a lasting memory can always purchase their new signature guitar in collaboration with Gretsch, which was unveiled earlier this week. The upcoming Broadkaster Jr is a limited edition axes complete with a series of subtle touches to represent the group – including a nickel head badge boasting each of their signatures.

They’ll also be hoping for awards glory at the Grammys this weekend, having secured five nods for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Alternative Album of the Year, Alternative Music Performance, Rock Performance and Rock Song.
