Following runs of more than a dozen sold-out shows across the US East and West Coasts this spring, Hurray for the Riff Raff (aka Alynda Segarra) has announced a summer tour bringing them back through the US after a European tour in May. Beginning in early July, a new leg of headline dates will stop in cities that have yet to experience the live show of The Past Is Still Alive, the acclaimed album that has Vulture calling Segarra (they/them) “one of America’s best songwriters." Upcoming performances also include Hurray for the Riff Raff’s Red Rocks debut and other amphitheater appearances with Norah Jones, as well as a homecoming set at New Orleans Jazz Festival, a return to NYC for a free concert in Battery Park on July 18, and more to be announced.

Tickets to Hurray for the Riff Raff’s newly-added tour dates are on-sale at 10am local time this Friday, April 19, with support from Hannah Frances. Find the full list below; for all the latest, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

Out now on Nonesuch, The Past Is Still Alive is the record of Alynda Segarra’s life so far. Finding fans in everyone from Elton John to Eileen Myles, it has been hailed as “the next great American road album” (The Atlantic), through which Hurray for the Riff Raff is “etching their own story into the American songbook, and asserting that they belong there" (New York Times). Pitchfork named it Best New Music, NPR’s Ann Powers drew comparisons to Joni Mitchell’s Hejira and Lucinda Williams’ Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, and in a sweeping cover story, Paste declared it “the most important album of the 2020s so far.”

Produced by Brad Cook, The Past Is Still Alive is both a memoir and a roadmap to America's fringes, as Alynda Segarra uses portraits of their radical, itinerant experiences to deliver profound reflections on time, memory and loss. In addition to discussing the album with Elton John, NPR’s Morning Edition, the New York Times, Vulture, Vogue, Rolling Stone, Them, Paper, and more, they most recently performed three of the album’s highlights on CBS Saturday Morning: “Alibi,” “Hawkmoon” and “Buffalo." You can watch the CBS performances here.

In the run-up to The Past Is Still Alive, Alynda Segarra also accepted The People's Voice Award at Folk Alliance International's 2024 International Folk Music Awards. Now, they are about to embark for a month of shows throughout the UK and EU. In partnership with PLUS1, $1 per ticket in Northampton, Detroit, Indianapolis and Cincinnati will support This Must Be The Place and their work to distribute Naloxone—the lifesaving medicine that reverses an overdose, and will be available for free at every one of Hurray for the Riff Raff’s headline tour stops.
