UPDATE: King Tut is currently working on their second full-length album at Altamont Recording in Asheville, NC. Details are TBA. Funding for the 7" pressing is coming soon.

King Tut is a folkpsychtechrock duo based out of Asheville, North Carolina. Mark Boyd (Guitar), formed the band in the summer of 2006 with a different line-up, though Drew Veres (Drums) joined shortly afterward.

After writing a year's worth of material on Mac laptops using Garageband and Reason, King Tut released their first album "Chopping Wood & Carrying Water" on a upstart label from Boston, Amaro Dolce, though difficulties with the label forced them to sever their contract.

When they play live, Mark uses a looping pedal, building whole songs from scratch on the fly, backed by Drew's classically trained, powerful jazz drumming. King Tut has consistently been defined as new, fresh, original, uplifting, and exciting.

Alternative Press magazine gave CW&CW 3/5 stars. King Tut also opened for The Liars on their Radiohead tour. And in 2007, they made it into the semi-finals of the BBC's "Next Big Thing" contest, where they were 1 of 20 bands selected from 2000 entrants from 80 different countries.
