King Buffalo Sign to Stickman Records; Orion European Release Announced

Only days after announcing an alliance with Tone Deaf Touring and about a week and a half removed from their appearance at The Obelisk All-Dayer at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, Rochester, New York, heavy psych pastoralists King Buffalo have hooked up with Stickman Records. The respected purveyor — home to Motorpsycho, Elder, Spidergawd and others — also recently snagged Papir from the ether and may just be at the start of a round of roster expansion. Their choices in with whom to work remain selective and deeply admirable.

Congratulations to King Buffalo and to the label on the partnership. Stickman will press up King Buffalo‘s recently-released debut album, Orion (review here), for a Dec. 2 European release and hints that the band could tour Europe in 2017 as well. Will keep an eye out for news on that and hope it comes together for them. The more the merrier.

In the meantime, King Buffalo have a hometown release show at the Bug Jar in Rochester booked for Sept. 10. More info in the Thee Facebooks event link under the announcement below:

If you recognize the band in the photo, then you already know what this is about: the New York-based band King Buffalo and Stickman Records are joining forces. The band’s fantastic new album “Orion” will be hitting the European shops on December 2nd on vinyl, CD and digitally, and we hope to be seeing them on tour in Europe next year as well.

King Buffalo invade your ears with heavy driving riffs and a familiar groove. Psychedelic, blues and stoner overtones combine with thunderous bass and drums, reminiscent of heavy 70’s rock. A wall of sound, a trio of soaring sounds, and an unrelenting pace merge to form their own musical styling.

Sean McVay – Guitar & Lead Vocals
Dan Reynolds – Bass & Lights
Scott Donaldson – Drums & Vocals

King Buffalo, Orion (2016)
