Sold-Out Headline Tour In Support Of Book And Album Underway 
October 3, 2019 (Los Angeles, CA) – Tegan and Sara’s first memoir, High School, debuts at No. 15 on The New York Times Best Sellers Nonfiction list. Published by MCD X FSG (USA), the book is available HERE. On the heels of the book’s release, Tegan and Sara released their new album, Hey, I’m Just Like You (Sire), which features new recordings of their very first songs, written between the ages of 15 and 17– the period documented in High School. Read The New York Times’ Q&A with Tegan and Sara HERE.

Watch Tegan and Sara performing the album’s lead single, “I’ll Be Back Someday,” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert HERE and their interview with Colbert HERE. Earlier this week, they appeared on A Little Late with Lilly Singh. View HERE.

Entertainment Weekly observed, “The indie-rock duo's new memoir and companion album ditches rock stardom for a funny, raw, and relatable look at being a teen.” Rolling Stone – relishing the “double whammy” of the album and the book – said, “Tegan and Sara’s debut memoir is a lot like their songs: complexly intimate, smartly crafted and packing a subtle emotional wallop.” Pitchfork hailed the album as “a fierce reminder of the twins’ ability to write an irresistible chorus.” VICE observed, “Especially as outwardly queer artists from the start, this steady, decades-long climb is nearly unprecedented and has paved the way for pop stars like Halsey, Hayley Kiyoko, and King Princess to be able to sing about female desire on Top 40 Radio.”

Their sold-outmulti-dimensional headline tour continues on the West Coast. All tour dates HERE. One dollar from every ticket sold on the tour will benefit the Tegan and Sara Foundation, which fights for health, economic justice, and representation for LGBTQ girls and women.
