The new album from Cincinnati rock ‘n’ roll group Buffalo Killers is called Heavy Reverie and will be released on May 13th. Today, the band is giving fans an early sneak peak with the first single “Poisonberry Tide.”
“Poisonberry Tide busts out sounding like a hard rock R.E.M,” says music critic Tony Conely. “Peter Buck always wanted to make a real hard rock record with Dayton’s own Robert Pollard (Guided By Voices), and I gotta think it may have sounded much like this. Killer riffing and a lovely melody that floats over the top like a dream The Gabbard brothers’ trademark harmonies come in on the pop radio ready choruses, and it’s time to take the top down and accelerate. I don’t know what’s on the radio these days, but this sure as hell should be.”
Buffalo Killers also announced some new tour dates in preparation for the album’s release. One such date includes a stop at the second annual “Freaks For The Festival” where they will be direct support for the Chris Robinson Brotherhood.
Sun Pedal Recordings still has some of the limited edition Heavy Reverie bundles available via their online store. Packages include vinyl test pressings, hand drawn artwork, a T-shirt, and more. Purchase a bundle and get an immediate download of the new album here.
