Hurray For The Riff Raff Kicks Off Summer Tour

UK Dates in August

Hurray for the Riff Raff, aka Alynda Segarra, begins a week-long duo acoustic tour of the UK in August,with support from Katie Malco, following a run of North American dates in July.  The UK tour kicks off with a sold-out show at Omeara in London on August 11, followed by shows in OxfordHebden BridgeManchester, and Brighton. Segarra then heads to Norway for sets at the Pstereo and Parken festivals. See below for details on all of the currently scheduled shows; for all the latest, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

To commemorate Earth Day earlier this year, Hurray for the Riff Raff released a digital deluxe version of their acclaimed 2022 Nonesuch debut, LIFE ON EARTH.  Along with the album’s original eleven songs, the deluxe edition has seven additional tracks, three of which are previously unreleased: an acoustic version of ‘POINTED AT THE SUN’ and two originals from the Life on Earth sessions, ‘LET HER IN THE SKY’ and ‘RESISTANCE ROCKERS’, the Kelly Gallagher–directed video for which can be seen here.

Life on Earth was a departure for the New Orleans-based Segarra.  Its eleven new “nature punk” tracks on the theme of survival are music for a world in flux — songs about thriving, not just surviving, while disaster is happening.  For this eighth full-length album, Segarra drew inspiration from The Clash, Beverly Glenn-Copeland, Bad Bunny, and the author of Emergent Strategy, adrienne maree brown. Recorded during the early months of the pandemic, Life on Earth was produced by Brad Cook (Waxahatchee, Bon Iver, Kevin Morby).  Among other accolades, the album was on many media outlets’ best of 2022 lists, including those of NPR, MojoRolling StoneUncut, and Brooklyn Vegan.
