Vermont local and very marvellous "high class but lo-fi rock n roller" KING TUFF is back in May, this time for a full run of dates across the UK.
If you can't wait until then well you can always Keep on Movin' with the "slacker mastermind" at this year's SXSW in Austin, Texas.
“King Tuff is full of fizzy melody and leering guitar.... The whole thing sounds as if it were made by a Marc Bolan more into baseball caps than feather boas.” – SPIN
“King Tuff bops and boogies to simple, raw melodies, a throwback to a time when people actually danced to guitar-driven songs.” – The Onion AV Club
King Tuff is the most recent release from King Tuff – his first for Sub Pop and his second album overall. Was Dead, King Tuff’s 2008 debut, captured the attention of the rock underground and quickly blew through its limited pressing. His s/t second album, released in 2012 on Sub Pop was produced by Bobby Harlow, of The Go and Conspiracy of Owls. Saying of King Tuff: “We've created something here. King Tuff should not be inspected or even listened to with critical ears. Cut your ears off. Rock & Roll is meant to be blasted into your cells, penetrated, and absorbed. It's a visceral experience.”
All hail the King.
