King Tuff is embarking on a world tour beginning August 12th at the Boardmasters Festival in Cornwall, England. The first leg of dates takes King Tuff through Europe, with shows in Manchester, London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, and more. He will then begin a 21-date US tour that includes 17 dates supporting labelmate Father John Misty. The US shows begin September 12th in Las Vegas, NV and end October 13th in Lexington, KY. See below for a full list of dates. 
 
To celebrate the impending shows, King Tuff (aka Kyle Thomas) asked longtime friend Merrill Garbus (Tune-Yards) to remix his single “Psycho Star,” the psychedelic, day-glo pop jammer off King Tuff’s 2018 release, The Other.

When asked about the remix, Thomas said: “So excited to share this Tune Yards remix of ‘Psycho Star.’ Merrill Garbus is one of my oldest and dearest friends, and together with beautiful bass babe Nate Brenner they have truly brought my song into the chaos dimension, a place that turns you inside out and makes your guts dance like breaking glass. The last time Merrill and I collaborated was almost 15 years ago in our reggae band Baked Earth. So happy to be reunited in the dub zone with her here again!”

What people are saying about “Psycho Star”
 “…strutting, synth-heavy jam” - Stereogum
 
“‘Psycho Star’ serves as a pitch-perfect demonstration of the album’s mission statement. The soaring, psychedelic cut rides along a funky strain of percussion that’s joined by bright, spacey synths, wah-wahs, and wide-eyed lyrics about the wonders of ‘this strange little star.’” [Psycho Star] - Consequence of Sound
