Star of stage, screen, podcast airwaves, and beyond, scalding hot drag superstar Alaska Thunderfuck is about to get even “RED” hotter as she tours North America, including a show at the Howard Theatre in DC on Saturday, Oct. 29!
Her tour coincides with the upcoming release of her full-length album, Red 4 Filth, via PEG Records/Warner Music Group/ADA.
From the new album, Alaska recently released the single “wow,” which channels all the angsty amped-out rock feels ala Avril and Alanis. When asked to describe the song, Alaska stated, “It’s a breakup song!”
In the video, Alaska performs out of drag on guitar (red, of course) backed by the band Disciplez banging out a raw and unfiltered performance.
Watch the official music video for “wow” by Alaska Thunderfuck on YouTube:
Alaska’s previous track, “beautiful (Night 4 a) breakdown” is filled with all the essential emotional ingredients as Alaska explains, “I live with hysteria, tantrums, and breakdowns on pretty much a daily basis. So this is a beautiful dance anthem that is celebrating the liberating power that you can find by being comfortable and familiar with your inner demons, rather than trying to run from them or hide them.”
“Red,” the first track released from Red 4 Filth hailed by Billboard magazine as follows: Alongside being one of RuPaul’s Drag Race’s biggest stars, Alaska Thunderfuck knows how to put together a banger. Nowhere is that more clear than on “Red,” the drag star’s stunning new single. The song, which comes off of the star’s upcoming album Red 4 Filth, is a thumping electro-pop banger through and through, with Alaska offering some stellar vocals (as well as her signature talk-singing in the song’s second verse) to bring home this early-2000s-style bop.
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.
