Coming off the back of their recent single ‘Faded Like A Feeling’, taken from the duo’s forthcoming album ‘Crybaby’ due out on October 21, the new graphic novel Junior High serves as a prequel to their previous memoir High School, which was released back in 2019.
Junior High however, according to its description “explores growing up, coming out and finding yourself through music and sisterhood” and ultimately “offers a glimpse at Tegan and Sarah before they became icons, exploring their shifting sisterhood, their own experiences coming out and the first steps of their music journey.”
In other news, one half of the band in Sara Quin recently welcomed the birth of her first child, with the musician taking to the band’s official Instagram on August 2 with her very own crybaby.
Tegan and Sara: Junior High will be released in both trade paperback and hardcover variants come May 30, 2023. Outside of the graphic novel, the band have also been busy collaborating with Canadian band Arkells on their upcoming seventh album ‘Blink Twice’, with Tegan and Sara set to feature on one of the songs taken from the record.
