The bearded, classic rock loving dudes in Buffalo Killers will be releasing a brand new record on 11/24 called Fireball of Sulk. Today, with the help of Yahoo! Music, they are letting you hear the new tracks early. Check it out here.
“Not to sound like a broken record, but our albums really reflect where we are in a particular moment,” vocalist/bassist Zach Gabbard told Yahoo! “Once the album is finally released, we have traveled 6-12 months of road and we are so far from that point of creation that to hear it again is exciting on many levels – we finally get to share the material with everyone and we have enough distance from it, that we can enjoy it in an all-new way.”
Gabbard continued, “‘Fireball of Sulk’ is our 7th studio album. We are super proud of that fact. It’s really unheard of for a band these days. We’ve made more records than all my heroes.
When asked to talk about writing particular songs on the record Gabbard said “From a songwriting standpoint, I had a time-traveling experience. I was working on ‘Weird One’ and recalled a song that I had written 15 years ago, ‘Marshmallow Mouth,’ and resurrected it for this album because they are both reflecting on my youth – only one was written during that time and the other, as a man 15 years older, reflecting on that time period.”
Fireball of Sulk (produced by Jim Wirt at Crushtone Studios) is a follow up to Heavy Reverie, the full-length that landed Buffalo Killers a spot on last season’s Last Call with Carson Daly. The record is available for pre-order along with exclusive merch and each purchase comes with an instant download of the song “Marshmallow Mouth.” Physical copies of Fireball also include a second bonus disc with all the songs from Heavy Reverie.

About Buffalo Killers:
“One of the best f###ing rock ‘n’ roll bands in the world” – Chris Robinson
“Heavy on the heavy and with plenty of hooks” – High Times
Buffalo Killers hailing from OHIO deliver hook heavy homegrown rock n roll. Lead by songwriting brothers Zachary and Andrew Gabbard, the band has drawn the attention of the likes of Chris Robinson, who invited them to open a string of dates for The Black Crowes and Dan Auerbach, who produced their sophomore effort “Let It Ride,” to name a few.
Hot on the tail of a prolific three years of released albums (the critically acclaimed 3 (2011), Dig. Sow. Love. Grow. (2012) and Ohio Grass (2013)), the band signed with Sun Pedal Recordings. They then entered Crushtone Studios with platinum producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, Fiona Apple) to record Heavy Reverie before making an appearance on Last Call with Carson Daly. They returned to Crushtone for their new record Fireball of Sulk, a six-song offering that will be released on 11/24.
There’s a different world out there that awaits you. Buffalo Killers are bringing that world to you.
