Upon its release in 2008, the record was warmly received from critics and fans alike. MAGNET named it one of the “Top 25 Albums of 2008,” and raved, “Keep Your Eyes Ahead is a shining example of how to go retro while still moving forward.” Washington Post offered this, “Trading its former album’s dense keyboard compositions for a more expansive and organic sound, Keep Your Eyes Ahead is the work of a band commanding its audience’s attention. Stand out tracks like “Hallelujah” and “Can’t Say No” show the band flexing its melodic muscles, branching out into grandiose guitar rock territory without sacrificing the nuance and keyboard flourishes of its early work.” And Drowned in Sound, in its 8/10 review of the album, had this to say, “And now, at last, the protracted silence is broken by the surging scream of Keep Your Eyes Ahead, an album that feels as vital as the first, gulping breath of the near drowned. What this record means to Summers and partner Benjamin Weikel is apparent in the intense force of feeling.”

King Tuff Releases Cover of ABBA’s Classic “S.O.S.” for Amazon Original + Announces the Infinite Smiles Tour

King Tuff has announced a massive North American tour for 2019. The Infinite Smiles tour - which follows his recently completed tour with labelmate Father John Misty - begins January 9th in Tucson, AZ, with stops in Athens, Charlotte, New York City, Brattleboro, Chicago, St. Paul, Vancouver, Seattle, Los Angeles, and more, ending with a two-night stand in San Diego on February 22nd & 23rd. 

In the words of King Tuff: “The Infinite Smiles tour is going down smack dab in the middle of winter depression. We will be traversing the snowy landscape wearing our finest shades of sunshine to try and bring a little light to the gloom! Our last tour focused mainly on the new album, but for this one we’ll be busting out some older jams and hopefully trying out some all new things. And yes, there will be Space Horn.” (full list of dates below).

In tandem with this announcement, King Tuff has released a cover of the classic ABBA song “S.O.S.” via the Amazon Original series. About the song: “‘S.O.S.’ is a really sad song if you actually listen to the lyrics, but like a lot of ABBA songs you don’t notice because the music is so fun and uplifting. My heart has had kind of a rollercoaster of a year so it made sense to cover this song, slow it down, and swim around in the beautiful sadness of it.”  

Amazon Music listeners can simply say, “Alexa, play King Tuff’s “S.O.S.’” in the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android and on Alexa-enabled device. In addition to the new track, Amazon Music listeners can access hundreds of Amazon Original songs and numerous albums featuring both emerging and established artists across numerous genres, available to stream and purchase, only on Amazon Music. Click here to listen.

Thank you National Sawdust, light tech Shane Donohue, and the Food Co-op in Duluth. It’s dedicated to our city of Duluth.”
