King Buffalo is a psychedelic trio in the classic format of bass, drums, and guitar, whose expansive and thunderous music is anything but easily definable.
Formed by three long-standing members of the blooming Rochester, NY rock scene, King Buffalo gathered in September of 2013 to start working on a new musical collaboration in a heavy rock vein. Their efforts spawned a demo release and several splits and one-offs which, coupled with their impressive live show, quickly gained them an international audience.
Down & Outlaws
In the year following Down and Outlaws' debut album release, the San Francisco quartet has played San Francisco's famed Outside Lands festival, shared bills with the likes of Meatbodies, Dead Meadow and members of Pavement, and honed their live shows with ever-increasing energy and power.
The quartet -- Peter and Chris Danzig, Jon Carr, and Kyle Luck -- have appeared on Last Call With Carson Daly and recorded in Vancouver for Converse Rubber Tracks. The D&O's music has also been featured in Oliver Stone's 'Snowden' and the Ubisoft game, ‘Watch Dogs 2.'
With the release of the Bad Radio EP, the band has grown heavier, groovier, and tougher. Bad Radio brings a matured sound, from a band that's paid their dues and is hungry for more. Recorded in Joshua Tree, San Francisco, and Vancouver, Bad Radio is a 1-2-3 punch from a band that makes a ruckus with the reckless abandon of the Stooges, and the conviction of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
As a friend recently commented, "I've been trying to record your set for months, but you're too fuckin' loud!" This music is based on freedom and escape from everything else that drags you down, if only for 40 minutes.
