Featured as one of Kerrang! Magazine’s Breakthrough Acts of the year in 2017, The Kut have noisily been going about their business of winning over rock fans and media alike with a gang of videos, legendary tour dates, singles and EPs which have culminated in the long awaited debut full length album ‘Valley Of Thorns’ set for release through Cargo Records.
Dubbed the ‘hardest working woman in rock n roll’ Princess Maha leads The Kut with a reputation as one of the UK’s nicest, but most rocking front women ever to grace these shores, and those across Europe’s continent.
Rock category finalist of the UK Songwriting Contest 2017 and current semi-finalist of the International Songwriting Competition, The Kut have put together a future classic album, produced by James Le Rock ( Skindred / Def Leppard / White Zombie / My Vitriol) which is poised to put these ladies over the top.
Infamous festival performances have included Download, Camden Rocks Festival, Rebellion Festival, Hard Rock Hell, Glastonbudget, Nice N Sleazy and Strummercamp and last year was spent mainly on the road across the UK, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. Princess Maha explains, “It’s an absolute dream come true to sign with Cargo. They are super passionate about their artists – truly one of the UK’s finest. The debut has been a long time coming, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it”.
Cargo and The Kut partnered with Pledge Music to set the release in motion. The campaign, which has already surpassed the 100% target, sees special exclusives for supporters, including rehearsal hangouts, signed lyrics and The Kut jackets as worn by band and crew on recent tours.
If you don’t yet know about The Kut, get this record and turn the volume up for one hell of a ride. The Kut are Princess Maha (Lead Vocals / Guitar), Stella Vie (Bass / BVs), Diana Bartmann (Drums / BVs). ‘Valley Of Thorns’ is out on Cargo Friday 13th April.
