The Kut – ‘I Want You Maniac’ (Criminal Records)
Out Monday 20th October

Produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / White Zombie / Sonic Boom Six / My Vitriol), The Kut -‘I Want You Maniac’ is an upbeat, grunge fused horror-rock track taken from the bands forthcoming EP. As a quick follow up to their ‘Make Up’ EP, it has been good news that the band is back in the studio so soon, especially given what spanned a near 3 year hiatus.

Front-woman Maha spoke about the single, shortly after the news they’d been confirmed on the Camden Nightmare Festival line up today… “We’ve always wanted to put out a Halloween single, it’s always been our rock Christmas, and I Want You Maniac was the right track for us to celebrate it with... It’s been awesome working with James in the studio again, and the video was a lot of fun to make as well… We envisioned it as a zombie version of pet cemetery, it’s a bit scary”

The Kut: Biography

Inspired by bands like Deftones, L7, Hole, Incubus, Placebo, Nirvana, Faith No More and others, The Kut are a London basement rock trio formed from the alternative scene. Having been voted into in the winning spots for MTV UK Brand New Unsigned 2014 Poll, the recent ‘Make Up’ EP was produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / White Zombie / My Vitriol / Page & Plant / Def Leppard), featuring 3 brand new tracks plus 2 previous releases ‘DMA’ and ‘Closure’. The latest offering, ‘I Want You Maniac’ ties some of those tracks together, combining elements of horror pop with their grunge rock sound. Recently joined by ex-Riot Squad drummer, Violet, on drums, the band are due to release their new EP in Spring 2015.
This year the band’s first EP, ‘Make Up’ saw dark and emotive tracks like ‘No Trace’ into the Scuzz Most Wanted Rock Chart, alongside bands like Paramore, Green Day - as well as playlisted on their 'All-Stars of Rock Show'. The single was also supported by Alex Baker on Kerrang! Radio and picked up by BBC Introducing in Lancashire and Oxford. This lead to The Kut being invited in for a BBC Introducing live set, where they performed a 4 song set live from the Blackburn studios. The video was play listed on Putpat TV (Germany, Switzerland, Austria) and featured by Vevo, with a number of USA stations also including the track.
Most recent single ‘Mario’, was supported by Scuzz TV on their ‘Huge Rock Anthems’ show, as well as Putpat TV and BBC Introducing Lancashire, just ahead of the release. The band’s previous video, ‘Closure’ was playlisted on Sub TV, Tuune and NME TV (Radar), whilst their first ever video ‘DMA’ (aka Doesn’t Matter Anyway) was added to 16 USA cable channels on the Bongo Boy Rock n Roll Show this May. The band has also had a number of tracks playlisted at the major UK clubs including Club NME and Medication. Previous shows include London 2012 Olympics and the Paralympics, and a sold out UK tour. In 2013 the band performed DJ sets for Kerrang! Klub, London and a string of 14 dates on the Club Criminal tour.

lyrics

I Want You Maniac

You're the ghost
In the mirror
You're so fine all the way down
Bring it on you make it easy, easy
Maniac
Ohh ohhh

I want you maniac
I want you maniac
I want you maniac
I want you, I want you

I want you maniac
I want you maniac
Ohhh maniac
Ohhh maniac

You're the whisper
In the hallway
You'd better hide
I'm on my way down

Bring it on you make it easy, sleazy
Maniac
Ohh ohhh

I want you maniac
I want you maniac
I want you maniac
I want you, I want you

I want you maniac
I want you maniac
Ohhh maniac
Ohhh maniac

Approached the chilling silhouette
With glistened back from salted sweat
As demons howl for tricks or treats
Across deserted lamp lit streets
With piercing fangs and demon eyes
The pumpkins burning, petrified
And witches cackle to goblins' screams
To beckon in all hallows eve

I want you maniac (halloween)
I want you maniac (halloween)
Ohhh maniac (halloween)
Ohhh maniac (halloween)

Maniac
Maniac

I want you maniac
I want you maniac
Ohhh maniac
Ohhh maniac
