Hurray for the Riff Raff announce UK dates, new album

Hurray for the Riff Raff’s new album “The Navigator” comes out on March 1oth on ATO Records, with Alynda Segarra “telling an interwoven, cinematic story of a wandering soul at a crossroads of identity and ancestral weight.  It finds a street kid named Navita traversing a perpetually burning city in search of herself. ‘The Navigator’ is a thrilling call to arms that could not come at a more crucial time.” You can watch the video to lead track “Rican Beach” below, which addresses the gentrification of the South Bronx and the co-opting of Puerto Rican culture in NYC and beyond.  And here are the UK dates they’ve got lined up for March.
