Buffalo Killers, a psychedelic blues trio, has set U.S. tour dates to support the new album Let It Ride, which drops July 22 on Alive Records.
The band recently returned to the Midwest to complete recording sessions in Akron, Ohio, following a run on the opening slot during the Black Crowes' tour. Members are brothers Zachary (vocals/bass) and Andrew Gabbard (vocals/guitar) with Joseph Sebaali (drums).
The initial pressing of the Let It Ride vinyl version will be limited to 500 copies. It will include a bonus "bootleg" live concert LP recorded in Los Angeles at the Orpheum Theatre during the Black Crowes' tour that was taped by Mikey Jones, a fan who literally taped the concert and sent the band a copy.
The six-track set features a mix of songs from both the band's debut album and Let It Ride. An outtake from The Buffalo Killers' concert recording, their signature cover of Neil Young's "Homegrown," is available on the band's myspace page (www.myspace.com/buffalokillers) and Web site (www.buffalokillers.com).
