BREAKING NEWS FROM THE DESK OF KING TUFF: “Unfortunately the release date for the Was Dead reissue has been pushed back due to problems at the manufacturing plant. Employees at the plant were found with their clothes torn off and twigs in their hair, listening to ‘Dancing On You’ and performing primitive love rituals instead of making records. Sorry for the delay.”

You heard it, folks. Mass pandemonium and bacchanalian revelry have led to a delay in the production of the hotly anticipated reissue of King Tuff Was Dead, now slated for release on May 28th via the once and future Burger Records. Finished copies of the record were smashed like plates at a Greek wedding, leading to mail orders unfulfilled and babies weeping. But fear not, we’ve come to give you a taste of what led to such anarchic celebration. WARNING: Do not listen to “Dancing On You” while operating heavy machinery or running errands. It will lead to long, possibly permanent delays.

Also, King Tuff is gearing up for a doozy of a tour, making landfall in Australia, New Zealand, Old Blighty (that’s the UK, ya’ll), and a good-sized hunk of the ole EU. He brings it all back home for a few performances at Portland, OR’s Pickathon Music Festival.
