Alaska Sees Red As She Takes Over The World With New Album, Book & Tour

Oh, that Alaska Thunderfuck….she’s the Omnipotent Queen of the World this fall/winter as she releases a new album, a new book, and embarks on a huge tour that will include a stop at Neumos on Capitol Hill…but not until March 5, 2022.

In the meanwhile, you can check out her new book, My Name’s Yours, What’s Alaska?: A Memoir (Chronicle Books / $24.95 / November 9, 2021) in just a few weeks.

The big new full length album Red 4 Filth  won’t be out until after the first of the year to coincide with the North America tour in support of it but she’s already dropped the first single, “Red” HERE and the video just dropped today, it’s a great, fun, pop disco song! This is a “real” album released by PEG Records/Warner Music Group/ADA and it was written by Alaska (aka Justin Honard), and musical professionals Jay Stolar (Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato), JBach (Chri$tian Gate$), Andrea Rosario (Aloe Blacc), Chester Krupa, Skyler Cocco & Jordan Palmer and produced by Stolar, Jordan Palmer, Krupa & Skyler Cocco. Check it out!

What does Alaska have to say about RED?

“Red is the color of blood, and the heart, and the color of love. This song and this album are dedicated to the time when I first fell in love with music — around the turning of the century. We’re drawing upon the sounds and textures of the 90s and early 2000s, with pop songs that are about love and friendship. I love the music and I can’t wait to share it with you all.” says Alaska

And more ‘filth’ via press release:

The “Red 4 Filth” North American tour is Alaska’s first-ever headlining tour and will feature her performing her entire new album along with other fan favorites with a barrage of sickening high fashion backup dancers (2000’s pop-star style) as well as feature her signature brand of comedy for a must-see show.  Ticket prices range from $20.00 for early GA & $25.00 for GA ADV to $95.00 for VIP/M&G and $249 for the Ultimate VIP experience. (SEATTLE: Go HERE to grab tix for the Neumos show on March 5, 2022)

The tour will kick off January 19, 2022, in Orlando, FL, with over 30 additional dates throughout the country & Canada, including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Toronto, and more. A full list of tour dates and venues is below.

AND, everything you need to know about the new book!

In addition to Alaska being one of the most powerful and iconic Drag queens in the galaxy – her captivating story begins as a small-town kid raiding her grandma’s closet. My Name’s Yours, What’s Alaska?: A Memoir (Chronicle Books / $24.95 / November 9, 2021) is her intimate, alluring tell-all book coming this fall.

Told with signature wit and charm, My Name’s Yours, What’s Alaska? is an unfiltered look at Alaska’s life and meteoric rise to fame. From childhood struggles to life lessons learned, the RuPaul’s Drag Race All Star shares the challenges, life-changing discoveries, and victories that paved her path to superstardom. Today, she’s a hit recording artist; global, in-demand performer; and heads a podcast network.

Of writing the book she says, “People have often asked me, ‘Alaska- if you were to ever write a book, what would it be about?’ The answer is simple- It would be about me, of course. In this book I plan to tell the T, the whole T, and nothing but the T— so help me Goddess. In telling my life story, from my birth until now, I hope to invite you into my world, to set the record straight, and to inspire the children of the world. Because if a poor skinny queer boy from Erie, Pennsylvania can grow up to be an extra-terrestrial starlet of stage and screen, then truly anus-thing is possible.”

In addition to being an entertaining memoir, My Name’s Yours, What’s Alaska? is an honest, emotionally resonant, funny, and unapologetic celebration of queerness, self-expression, and authenticity. Featuring exclusive photographs and illustrations, My Name’s Yours, What’s Alaska? is a fun, fresh, and wild ride right up to the finish line.
