All girl London alt-rock band The Kut’s new single ‘Bad Man’ is the final single release from the band’s latest EP ‘Rock Paper Scissors’. Listen here. With gnarly grunge guitars, punk beats and gritty screams, it’s easy to see why The Kut have been getting so much attention on the live circuit. The song itself tells the story of a woman who re-lives a series of flashbacks, causing her to create a cycle of revenge on a long distant Bad Man. The single releases ahead of the band’s long awaited debut album, marked for release later this year.
The track has also been synced to this ‘London guy fights for cash’ prank video which is quickly becoming the unofficial video for the track on the net- https://youtu.be/VRGUCSH-P9A – who doesn’t love to see the lines between acting and reality blurred in public?
The Kut are inspired by the likes of L7, Hole, Deftones, Incubus, Placebo and Nirvana. Fronted by songstress and multi-instrumentalist Princess Maha, the ‘Rock Paper Scissors’ EP is a quick follow up to 2014’s ‘Make Up’ EP, also produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred, White Zombie, Def Leppard). Voted into the winning spots in the MTV Brand New Unsigned Poll for 2014, they’ve since gained a growing list of industry supporters including Scuzz TV, Kerrang!, Kerrang! Radio, Metal Hammer, MTV-U USA, AXS USA, Big Cheese, BBC Introducing, Planet Rock Radio, Jim Gellatly’s New Music Showcase and club supporters including Club NME and Medication. The band’s recent video, ‘I Don’t Need Therapy’ was premiered on Kerrang!, whilst forthcoming single ‘Bad Man’ was added to the top track’s feature for Q Magazine and Classic Rock Magazine.
Their live show is just as energetic, with the band voted in as one of the two best acts to play the ‘Dog’s Bed Stage’ after their set at Download Festival 2015. 2015 also saw the band open the main stages of Glastonbudget and Strummercamp and perform a steady stream of tour dates and festivals. The recent ‘Rock Paper Scissors’ tour saw the band perform 17 dates, beginning with a hometown show as support for Teenage Bottlerocket at the Underworld. Previous shows include 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, as selected by the Teenage Rampage Foundation. The band have already been actively touring through 2016, including sets at Camden Rocks Festival, Glastonbudget, Rebellion Festival, Kaya Festival and a whopping 30 date autumn UK tour penned in. Top this off with some great feedback from rock legends Dave Navarro and Shirley Manson, and now would be a good time to be checking out The Kut.
