Having independently released the "Self Titled" debut LP (yeah, it's actually named that) earlier this year, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania-based trio Secret Cutter is now set on devouring fans and unsuspecting victims in the live setting throughout the region and beyond in support of the LP.
Secret Cutter's latest live itinerary includes the band's confirmed inclusion in the upcoming Brooklyn-based Uninvited Fest, a massive four-day event to take place in Gowanus, Brooklyn, running from September 18th through 21st.
The festival is set to transform a section of the neighborhood into an outdoor community for artists, musicians, motorcycle enthusiasts, and skateboarders with live music, food, booze, vendors, cinema, DJs, open skate sessions on a sponsored ramp setup and more.
Uninvited Fest sees Secret Cutter listed among Mothership, Captain Beyond, Subrosa, Mount Salem, The Skull, Black Cobra, Sasquatch, Lo Pan, Orchid, The Shrine, Lecherous Gaze, Weedeater, Elder and many others among the list of bands confirmed to perform.
Additionally, Secret Cutter is set to shred Allentown with a headlining show this Thursday, August 28th. Additional live actions will be announced throughout the coming weeks and the rest of 2014 as Secret Cutter continues to write new material for a next release.

Last week, debilitating storms dumped flood water throughout the Detroit area, including the offices of Small Stone Records, label home of Sasquatch, Wo Fat, Greenleaf, Lord Fowl, Dixie Witch, Roadsaw and many others.
Gear and products were both destroyed and insurance is only going to go so far, so the musical community is coming together to help Scott Hamilton from Small Stone with some of the massive expense of cleaning up from this flood. Donations can be made at this location.
Hamilton's support for heavy music in the near two-decades that he's run Small Stone has never wavered and this is a chance to help somebody who's helped the music scene by enriching our lives with great bands and great riffs. More...
Los Angeles outfit Sasquatch today unveils the band's first official video ever for the track "Smoke Signal." Check it out below, courtesy of Revolvermag.com.
Produced and directed by Cesar Rodriguez Bautista, VFX artist at WETA digital in New Zealand (Peter Jackson's digital visual FX company), the visually stunning clip was shot entirely in black and white using Super 8mm giving it the old-school classic movie feel.
Elaborates the band: "Scott Baxter, a fellow colleague of Cesar's at WETA, approached us about doing a video. They brought us an idea, we loved the concept, and the team ran with it. They even decided on the song. 'Smoke Signal' won the prizefight. We sat back in our virtual lawn chair and six months later they delivered us the magic. It turned out fanfuckingtastic. Mucho props to Cesar, his cast and crew for nailing it on the first lap."
"Behind the scenes: The house found to shoot in was built in the 1800s on top of a hill and has not been updated in over 100 years. It is located in Wellington, New Zealand. It was full of junk for the past 60 years to the ceilings from a 95 year old hoarder who lived there. He had so much junk that he filled the whole house and guest house, and ended up living in a tin shed on a cot until he died a few months ago. Not willing to part with his hoarding, he ended up in the cold until his final days. Which gives the property a whole new level of eeriness. The new owner, an artist, cleared the house out and we got to shoot in it before any renovations had taken place. It still looks untouched from 100 years ago, which fit perfect for this 8mm project of a scene from the olden days. The night of the shoot was 42 degrees, there was no heat, and the only lighting came from an extension cord plugged into another building on the property. Given the weather conditions, it took a strong actress to wear a wedding dress during the shoot." More...
