In support of the double LP Roll The Bones X, Shakey Graves confirms an extensive run of summer tour dates. The stretch of North American shows kicks off with multiple performances in his home state of Texas—Austin’s Stubb on June 18, Houston’s White Oak Music Hall (Lawn) on June 19 as well Dallas’ The Rustic on June 20—followed by a return headline set at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre on June 23. Tickets are available for purchase at www.shakeygraves.com/. See below for the full tour routing.
Roll The Bones X debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart, securing Shakey Graves’ first top 10 effort. The record celebrates 10 years since the release of his Bandcamp-exclusive debut album Roll The Bones and is now available on all digital service providers for the first time via Dualtone Records.

Most recently, Shakey Graves performed the album’s title track, “Roll The Bones,” on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” as part of their #PlayAtHome series. You can watch/share the performance HERE.
Shakey Graves is the brainchild of Alejandro Rose-Garcia, who released Roll The Bones on Bandcamp in 2011 without any promotion and little information about Shakey Graves. That year, Bandcamp made it a featured album for a month and from there it has stayed among the website’s top-selling records. Over the past decade the record has gone on to sell well over 100,000 units—despite being offered to fans on Bandcamp for “name your price”—and as a result Shakey Graves has garnered a massive cult following.
Accompanying the anniversary pressing are 15 additional tracks comprising an Odds + Ends LP, which stands as an essential document of Shakey Graves’ early era.
Shakey Graves has sold over 400,000 records to date, while garnering over 325 million streams worldwide. In 2014, following the release of And The War Came, Shakey Graves won an Americana Music Award for “Emerging Artist of the Year” and the album’s hit single “Dearly Departed” sold over 500,000 units in North America alone. The 2018 full band follow-up Can’t Wake Up was released to critical acclaim and Shakey Graves continued to tour relentlessly, including prestigious festival appearances both stateside and abroad. Not even the pandemic could pause Rose-Garcia’s penchant to create. In 2020 he released the Look Alive EP to coincide with an ongoing documentary/music video project, “Hello Gorgeous,” inspired by the name of his studio. Originally a solo music project, Shakey Graves now features a rotating cast of band members with varying setups and iterations.
