Win Tickets to See Cute Is What We Aim For

We'll be giving away a pair of tix for every show on the first leg of the band's U.S. tour.

Energetic power-pop quartet Cute Is What We Aim For are set to embark on their first headlining tour, and you could win a pair of tickets to the beginning leg of their jaunt with Fueled By Ramen label buddies This Providence and All Time Low. The band will play nearly every day of this month-long stretch, but don’t expect them to start slacking from fatigue. “Everyone’s asking how we’ll maintain our energy, but in the fall, we went two months with only three days off,” vocalist Shaant Hacikyan told “I guess we’re kinda used to it by now. It’s our job. It’s what we like to do.”

Other than encouraging the fellas to head to their show if they want to meet cute girls, Hackiyan makes no promises for what his band’s sets will be like. You can expect them to blast through his two favorite tracks they play live — “Fourth Drink Instinct” and “Sweat the Battle” (“It’s so fresh and so new,” he said) — but Hackiyan suggested they have no tricks up their sleeves yet. “I just gotta bring my A game,” the singer sighed. “Up until now we’ve been supporting bands. I’m excited to see what we can do as headliners.”
