Rarely has an album been given a second life like King Tuff Was Dead. Initially a record that passed as a revered whisper between devotees and garage rock music nerds, the album has been resuscitated and given Universal Soldier-like strength via its reissue by Burger Records. Was Dead premiered at #8 on the Billboard Heatseeker chart (an incredible feat for any reissue!) and, more recently, ranked #7 in CMJ’s College Radio chart. Already the biggest record in Burger’s history, Kyle and company have made plans to spread the gospel further with a tour in support of the release with brothers-in-fun Wavves and Jacuzzi Boys, not to mention some festival appearances at Outside Lands and Pickathon. Catch King Tuff on tour this summer and fall.
