King Tuff @ Knitting Factory in 2011 (more by Jessica Amaya)
We've known King Tuff were going to be at CMJ this year, as part of their tour with The Intelligence, but now we know the specifics. Kyle and the band will play three times next week: The Sub Pop showcase at Knitting Factory on 10/18 (11:20 PM) with Pissed Jeans, Metz, Daughn Gibson, Poor Moon and Debo Band, then the Inland Empire showcase at City Reliquary on 10/19 (7 PM, invite only) with Sinkane and more, and finally DIY space Cheap Storage on 10/20 (midnight) with Royal Baths, Habibi, Turnip King and Total Slacker. The band have extended their tour as well, with newly-added West Coast dates. Updated tour schedule is below.
King Tuff also have a new single out, "Screaming Skull," that isn't pulled from this year's self-titled album on Sub Pop. You can stream it below and buy it from Sub Pop or the merch table on tour.
Meanwhile, we just revealed that The Intelligence will play our BV day party at Public Assembly on Friday (10/19), headlining the back room at 5:15 PM. Check out the FULL SCHEDULE for Friday here.
Meanwhile, The Intelligence play Maxwell's on Wednesday (10/17, tickets) with Ba Babes, then the My Social List free day party at Public Assembly on October 18 (4:30 PM) with Roomrunner, Wild Yaks and Royal Baths, then later that night at Death by Audio as part of a killer bill with Montreal krautrockers Absolutely Free, locals Parquet Courts and Viva L'American Deathray Music. The DbA show is not affiliated with CMJ and $7 gets you in at the door.
King Tuff dates and song stream are below.
