Neko Case Announces Tour and Memoir


Neko Case has announced her memoir. The new book, The Harder I Fight The More I Love You: A Memoir, arrives on Tuesday, January 28, 2025, via Grand Central Publishing (GCP). Find the book cover below.

A press release for the memoir includes a brief synopsis:

In The Harder I Fight The More I Love You, Case brings her trademark candor and precision to a memoir that traces her evolution from an invisible girl “raised by two dogs and a space heater” in rural Washington state to her improbable emergence as an internationally-acclaimed talent. The book is a rebellious meditation on identity and corruption, and a manifesto on how to make space for ourselves in this world, despite the obstacles we face.

In addition, Case said of her book in a statement, “I hope my story will cast a spell of love, invite everyone inside, and smash the illusion that we have no connection to each other.”

Just last month, Neko Case announced a tour of North America that will begin in September and conclude in October. See her tour dates below.

Case shared her most recent solo studio album, Hell-On, in June 2018. She and her band the New Pornographers released their new album Continue as a Guest last year.
