Cutters Bio:

Survival is hard. You’ve got to do something to survive.
CUTTERS was born out of that idea. The idea that you’re more than the chunks of you that life poisons. The idea that the only way to reclaim some small semblance of yourself is to actually
d o s o m e t h i n g.
Because we want to survive.
It’s why we pack ourselves into vans and travel to strangers basements. It’s why we spend our last few dollars on someone else rather than ourselves. Punk rock is about caring, for other people, other places, other spaces and every road in between because we’re all in it for the same damn thing. We’re all longing for a sense of belonging. A reminder that we aren’t alone. We’re all just trying not to die.
So come on.
Get up. Get out. Get psyched.
There’s a basement waiting.
You might fall in love tonight.

CUTTERS is Pierce Lightning, Brian Deodat, John Luther and Michael Strianese. Formed in Brooklyn in 2012, the band self-reocrded and released their debut EP, “Trying Not to Die” to little fanfare in 2013. They followed up with 2014’s “We Are The Quarry,” an 8 song LP of “disparaging, barely hanging on” (Razorcake) punk songs recorded at Jam Eater Recording and released on Lost State Records (cassette) and Waybridge Records (cd). The band is currently prepping new releases for 2015.
