Lucy Dacus is releasing a new album, “Home Video” on June 25th via Matador Records, and she’s shared another new single from it, “VBS.” “VBS means vacation Bible school, and I went to tons of them,” Lucy says. “It’s where Christian parents send their kids over the winter, spring, or summer breaks from school to get closer to God, maybe learn some outdoor skills, and bring home useless crafts and totems like fruit of the spirit sand art and purity rings.”

“I wrote the song in the van on the way to Nashville to record Home Video after seeing one of those reader boards outside a church advertising a wholesome church camp for kids,” she continues. “I thought about my first boyfriend, who I met at VBS, the resident bad boy who loved Slayer and weed more than Jesus. I took it upon myself to save him, and make him stop doing drugs (with an exception for snorting nutmeg). God, I was so lame.

Watch the “VBS” video, animated by Lucy’s longtime collaborator (and Home Video creative director) Marin Leong, Dacus’ last album, “Historian” came out in 2018. The following year, she also released the EP “2019”.

Dacus’ regular touring band is Jacob Blizard (guitar), Dominic Angelella (bass), Ricardo Lagomasino (drums), and Sarah Goldstone (keys, background vocals).

Lucy will be touring this summer and fall, including headlining dates . “VBS” is taken from Lucy Dacus‘ upcoming album ‘Home Video’ out on Matador Records June 25th.
