Cute Is What We Aim For have just announced a string of October headlining tour dates which will follow their run opening on You Me At Six's upcoming headlining tour

To get you prepped for the shows, we have a brand new Cute song for you. Stream it, read a message from vocalist Shaant Hacikyan and and find the tour dates below! 

Music has been my medicine. I strongly believe that I wouldn't be here with it. Music has allowed me countless opportunities that I only dreamed of having as a child but it has also taught me much more about myself. It has taught me that I needn't be scared to share how I feel, to be honest at all costs and to own up to my mistakes. Even in my darkest moments, music has been there to pick me up. It has helped and encouraged me in my constant struggle with depression and it inspires me in my pursuit of staying sober. It's for these reasons why I refuse to give up and pledge to pay it forward. My constant mission is to hopefully write music that will provide the same medicinal benefits for others that it has had for me. I wanted to take this moment to extend a sincere thank you from the bottom of my left side to all of the amazing individuals who have patiently waited and stuck by CUTE after all these years. Without you, I am not.


I'll be seeing you soon.
Shaant Timothy
