To Be Released Digitally and on Limited Edition Swirl Vinyl, July 2
Record Release show on 7/2 - The Saloon - Encinitas, CA syndicated at StageIt.com
Kut U Up has returned to form with the band's first newly recorded material in more than a decade. They entered Double Time studios on El Cajon California, under the masterful ears of Jeff Forrest, recording six tracks-some unheard, some live show mainstays.
The Worse Than Wolves EP will be available July 2 digitally and on limited edition vinyl (black and clear swirl, limited to 500, image below) through MVD Entertainment Group. It can be pre-ordered at Aggronautix.com or at See of Sound. The band's record release show at The Saloon in Encinitas, CA on July 2 will also be syndicated online at StageIt.com for fans across the globe.
Kut U Up's first release, 2002's Pulled Over: Your Eyes Are Telling Me Different Son... , and the band's star-turn in the cult-classic, rock-doc, Riding In Vans' With Boys have helped the band garner a loyal, rabid, and very patient fan base around the world. Fortunately for the fans, the wait for new
Kut U Up material is over...
"It's crazy that it took us so long to go back in to the studio," says Kut U Up founding member, Chris Cote. "We never 'broke up', and we've been playing live here and there for the last ten or so years, but it became evident through fan interaction and the response we've been getting at shows that we really needed to record some new material. The fans deserve it, and we feel like our legacy does too-we don't want to just be remembered as, 'the band that was all f-ked up in that one movie with Blink and Green Day'-we feel the new songs will speak for themselves. The fans that have stuck with us will love the new jams, and hopefully we'll open the eyes and ears of a whole new generation of Kut U Up fans as well! We're very excited to start this new chapter of the Kut U Up saga."
The band's lineup remains strongly bonded, with Chris Cote on Bass and vocals, Brandon Parkhurst on guitar and vocals, Brendan Raasch on drums, and the most recent addition, Matt Amador on guitar. Listen to "Make It Out Alive".

About KUT U UP
Kut U Up is an indie-rock band from San Diego, California. The four piece has been together since sometime in the middle of 1996. If memory serves, the band was formed on the basis of making loud music for partygoers. In the last decade, the band has taken it's signature sound and refined it, adding melody, intricate guitar work, rotating vocals, pounding drums, all while keeping the loose attitude and high volume rawness Kut U Up has become known for. Kut U Up's live shows are better than ever with classic Kut U Up tracks shining alongside new material. Rock and Roll will never die, and neither will Kut U Up.
