Boygenius appear to have ‘confirmed’ that they are going on hiatus, at least that appears to be the case if you believe X/Twitter witness statements from their last gig.
Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker reportedly claimed that they were stopping the band for the time being during a pair of “secret” acoustic gigs in Los Angeles on February 1st.
As of writing, there is absolutely zero video evidence of them saying this, but going by one of the top boygenius fan accounts on X, it seems legit.
“‘We’re going away for the foreseeable future’ the boys tonight at the acoustic show in LA. Crying while I’m typing this” the account claimed.

Music News: boygenius is going on hiatus…we think
The band reportedly played thirteen songs during their acoustic sets in LA, which included the songs ‘Cool About It’ and ‘We’re in Love.’
There’s currently no indication from the band themselves that they’re legitimately stopping, but I think we can all agree that as long as Phoebe Bridgers keeps releasing solo material then we will cope (while crying).
