Psychy stony proggy hard rockers King Buffalo are just the thing for getting your wheels and imagination turning on those overcast days where the clouds won’t seem to part. You can listen to their  tasteful 8 minute new road worthy opus “Eta Carinae” now from new EP Dead Star, out March 20th, if you want to get the yellow motion lines on your mental highway flying past again at optimum speeds.  I am liking the propulsive grooves and smooth vocal hypnosis of this one. This band never tip their hand and just grow on you like a familiar shirt you don’t want to change, but hopefully occasionally is laundered- hahaha.

“These six songs deviate and expand on horizons that we as King Buffalo haven’t yet reached,” says drummer Scott Donaldson, who also handled the graphic layout of Dead Star with Ryan T. Hancock’s striking cover art. “It’s extremely exciting to make something familiar, but unlike anything we’ve previously done. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”

Dead Star was written and recorded by King Buffalo in Rochester, NY at the Main Street Armory in December of 2019 & January 2020. Produced & engineered by Sean McVay, mixed by Grant Husselman, and mastered by Bernie Matthews. The artwork was created by Ryan T Hancock with fonts by Mike Turzanski.
