THE KUT Announces July HMV & FOPP In-stores + Full Band UK Tour Dates!

New album ‘GRIT’ out 8th July via Criminal Records


The Kut’s forthcoming album “GRIT” is a story of independence, passion & purpose. From the contagious award winning “ANIMO” to the closing punk rock strides of “And 1 More…” the long-awaited sophomore oozes courage, resilience and punk rock spirit. It’s a knowing pep talk on following your instincts, from one of the UK’s most hotly tipped underground artists. Produced by James LeRock (Def Leppard / Skindred), The Kut leads on vocals/guitar on the album, moonlighting as drummer & bassist on two tracks, alongside her women in music collective.

The Kut is a British rock solo-artist. A multi-instrumentalist, songwriter & PhD Graduate, she’s a Double Award Winner in the UK Songwriting Contest, winning UKSC Best Rock Song & UKSC Best Music Video with ‘ANIMO’ (meaning courage) & Winner of the International Songwriting Rock Award (Mar ’22).

The Kut was awarded Arts Council funding to create her second studio album, featuring her touring line up.  Recent tour dates include a headline set at Isle of Wight Festival, River Stage & the MVT National Lottery #REVIVELIVE Tour. Tours span eight countries to date with festivals including Download, Camden Rocks, Rebellion & BBC Introducing Stages.

The album features indie hit singles ‘ANIMO’ & ‘SATELLITE’, that have amassed 3000+ airplays, inc. from Kerrang!, BBC London, BBC Wales, BBC Intro Lancs, Planet Rock, Total Rock, HRH Radio, Amazing Radio & AAA, College & Specialist Radio in 20 US states.

‘ANIMO’ Charted at #8 Physical, #35 Sales & #76 Downloads in the UK Charts (Nov ’21) & at #87 in the USA Submodern Singles (Indie Airplay) Top 100. ‘SATELLITE’ charted at #22 in the UK Sales Chart, #22 in Downloads Chart & #13 Physical. It also charted at #10 in USA’s NACC MMD Top Singles (Heat seeker).
