Cute Is What We Aim For
Cute Is What We Aim For
The power-pop recording group Cute Is What We Aim For has revealed an exclusive tour itinerary for the fall of 2016, including the first-ever performance of their acclaimed debut album, “THE SAME OLD BLOOD RUSH WITH A NEW TOUCH.”
Fueled By Ramen Records released “The Same Old Blood Rush With A New Touch” in June of 2006 to full-blown critical celebration. “The epitome of emo,” raved the New York Times’ Kelefa Sanneh, “fizzy, clever, self-aware, very witty...(The) album is widely-reflexive, full of lyrics poking fun at ego conventions...These songs are tightly packed with twists and turns and — yes— singalongs...Cute Is What We Aim For has released the emo soundtrack to every summer.”

“The best thing since Fall Out Boy,” declared Alternative Press. “Cute obviously understands the importance of gold-gilded hooks...soundtrack music for the world’s most perfect summer crush.”

Since 2006, the band has seen its faithful fan following continue to show enormous support throughout the ups and downs of their career. After declaring a hiatus in 2009, the band reformed in 2014 to perform on the Vans Warped Tour. Frontman Shaant Hacikyan states “Coming back from Warped Tour we received so much positive feedback. Fans all over the country were excited to see that we were back together and kept asking us to come play for them in their city”. That feedback has now set the perfect stage for the band to team up with FANBASSADOR™ on this upcoming tour. FANBASSADOR™ is the first competition based crowdfunding platform for concerts where cities compete against each other to be added to an upcoming tour. Shaant goes on to say, “By using Fanbassador’s platform, fans in smaller markets finally have a shot at bringing a tour to their city that would have normally gone somewhere else. It allows us to make the best use of our time while on the road, playing in cities where there is the most excitement and demand is ensuring a positive and successful tour.”

Expect to see the band once again in full force as they celebrate the album that launched their career and made them a pioneer in the “emo invasion of the early 2000s.”
