Listen To 2 New Songs By Rough Cutt Featuring Paul Shortino, Amir Derakh, And Matt Thorne

DDR Music has just released the new album by Rough Cutt. This version of the band features Paul Shortino, Amir Derakh, And Matt Thorne. Yes, There is another version using the Rough Cutt name featuring Chris Hager, Dave Alford, and new vocalist Steven St. James (aka Santiago). There appears to be bad blood between the former members that are representing both groups. Just check out the press release that came with the announcement of the album “3” being released:

You wanted the real ROUGH CUTT featuring Paul Shortino, Amir Derakh, and Matt Thorne, you got them! We’ll even throw in a special guest appearance by legendary Quiet Riot guitarist Carlos Cavazo shredding solos on three new tracks. The DDR Music Group and the three main men of ROUGH CUTT are proud to bring you their brand new album “III”.

A fitting title for the first album of new material released by the band since 1986. The guys have been hard at work crafting the killer new tracks “Electric”, “Bed Of Black Roses”, “Dive”, “Don’t Say A Word”, “Bleed”, “Secrets” and “Chasing Dreams” – and can we just say Paul sounds great! We’ve also included three very rare and hard to find tracks “Prowler”, “Peyote” and “House Of Pain”.

Many false accusations and lies have been made public about arguably the three most important members of ROUGH CUTT and all of them are completely fabricated nonsense. To release anything under the moniker of ROUGH CUTT without Paul, Amir and Matt is nothing short of unprofessional and disrespectful to the members and especially to the fans. Simply put, No Paul, no Rough Cutt! Without saying a single word this album proves the 3 original members as well as the band ROUGH CUTT are alive and kickin’ ass as seriously as they did in the mid-eighties. “III” marks the real and indisputable return of the band, crank it up loud and proud, it’s the only way Paul, Amir, and Matt would want it. Now let’s get this party started!!Rough Cutt ‘III’

This album is a brand new release, crafted in Los Angeles, California, mixed by Matt Thorne & mastered by Lance V. It comes packaged in an 8 page booklet with a full set of lyrics. This CD is silver pressed, officially licensed from Paul Shortino, Amir Derakh and Matt Thorne and is exclusively available from the DDR Music Group. Get your copy today!

This album is available as a full album download through Bandcamp.
