Hooray For Earth will first play a couple special shows in their dual hometowns, New York City and Boston, before hitting the road in June.
This buzzworthy tour celebrates Hooray For Earth's recent signing to Dovecote Records, and the release of their highly anticipated MOMO EP - available everywhere June 1st digitally, on CD, and special CLEAR VINYL!

"The Boston rockers spew big guitar noise, crafty synths, gripping melodies, and intricate aural theatrics with massive style and ridiculous aplomb. They need to be famous." - The Boston Globe
"A little bit 80s synth pop, a little bit indie rock and a hell of a good time." - New York Press
