"Ride simmers, then explodes with the fuzzy psychedelia of southern rockers crowding classic rock playlists, but without sounding dated or overtly derivative." – Cincinnati Magazine
Los Angeles, CA –Cincinnati psychedelic blues trio, Buffalo Killers, will hit the road this summer supporting their soon to be released album Let it Ride on July 22nd. Recently coming off tour with the Black Keys, the Buffalo Killers will begin a solo run of the west coast on July 18th running from Chicago to Seattle and San Francisco to Los Angeles, before opening for the Black Crowes again this fall.
Earlier this year, after wrapping their opening run for the Black Crowes, the Buffalo Killers returned to the Midwest to complete recording sessions in Akron, Ohio with producer Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys at his Akron Analog studio. The result is a 10-track album titled Let it Ride that remains deeply rooted in their signature 60s psychedelic and 70s blues rock inspired sound.
Drawing comparisons in sound to Blue Cheer, Cream, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Mountain and the Allman Brothers Band, the trio released their self-titled debut to critical raves praising them and their music as "the real raw deal" (Amplifier), "well played sludgy blues-rock" (Variety) and "deftly captures the sweaty, grimy feel of the era's best-loved soul-and blues-influenced rock" (Hartford Courant). Simply said, this is as authentic as they come.
The initial pressing of the Let it Ride vinyl version, limited to 500 copies, includes a bonus "bootleg" live concert LP recorded in Los Angeles at the Orpheum Theatre during the Black Crowes tour by Mikey Jones, a fan that taped the concert and sent the band a copy. The six-track set features a mix of songs from both their self-titled debut album and "Let it Ride." Additionally, the Buffalo Killers have posted an outtake from that concert recording, their signature cover of Neil Young’s "Homegrown," on their MySpace page and website. Rolling Stone recently offered a "sneak peek" of the opening track, "Get Together Now Today," online at www.rollingstone.com.
The Buffalo Killers are brothers Zachary (vox/bass) and Andrew Gabbard (vox/guitar) with Joseph Sebaali (drums).
