WATCH: FILTER & Dr. Martens Present 48 Hours In Austin: King Tuff At SXSW

By Staff; Photos by Marc Lemoine on May 14, 2013


It's hard to believe that two months have passed since Dr. Martens and FILTER were hanging out with the coolest bands at SXSW. We don't mean to brag, but we do have the funnest guests at our parties. This week, we reminisce about our time with the lo-fi garage pop genius, King Tuff.

Charismatic and enigmatic are two words that are frequently used to describe Kyle Thomas, AKA King Tuff, so we were excited for he and his bandmates to share tales of how they met and where they get their clothes. They kept us laughing throughout the day and rockin' all night.

Need your fix? King Tuff is on tour in Europe now, returning to the states with a show at Bowery Ballroom on June 2. In the meantime, you can pre-order the Was Dead reissue, which comes out on May 28.
