Beyond Presents are delighted to announce This Is the Kit’s 2016 Highlands Tour.
Thebeloved musical project of one Kate Stables, This Is The Kit released her third album Bashed Outearlier last year. Produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner, it was acclaimed critically and quickly seen as her breakthrough record.

It was here where her debut album Krulle Bol took shape, recorded and produced by PJ Harvey's long-standing musical collaborator John Parish. Her second album, 2010's Wriggle Out The Restless was made in France alongside members of Francois and the Atlas Mountains before final touches from TITK's extended musical family were added in Bristol, Belgium and several points in between.
Bashed Out features performances from Aaron, his brother Bryce Dessner, Benjamin Lanz (Beirut), Thomas Bartlett (Doveman, The Gloaming) and Matt Barrick (The Walkmen) alongside her regular cast of collaborators (Rozi Plain et al).
