King Tuff (real name: Kyle Thomas[1][2]) is a recording artist on Sub Pop Records[3] and Burger Records.

His eponymous album was released on May 29, 2012,[4] charting at No. 21 [5] on Billboard's Heatseeker Albums chart. The album also debuted on the CMJ charts at No. 14,[6] eventually climbing to No. 2 and knocking Jack White's Blunderbuss from its top charting position.[7]

King Tuff’s 2008 debut album was entitled Was Dead, and was originally released by Tee Pee Records sister-label The Colonel[disambiguation needed].[8] It is now considered collectable because so few were pressed.[citation needed] In 2013, Burger Records re-issued a DeLuxe blue edition, which immediately charted in the #8 position on Billboard's Heatseeker chart dated June 6.

King Tuff, the band, has released several music videos and toured across the United States, Australia and Europe since 2012.[9]
