Buffalo Killers Stream New Song on SoundCloud

(Cincinnati, OH) – The hook-heavy rock band Buffalo Killers is streaming a new song from their upcoming record Heavy Reverie (available 5/13). The song is called “Dig On In” and can be heard on the Sun Pedal Recordings SoundCloud page.

Dig On In is a fantastic tune, reminding of 60s/70s hard rock like Cream or Black Sabbath,” says music critic Andrija Babovic.

Buffalo Killers also announced some new tour dates in preparation for the album’s release. One such date includes a stop at the second annual “Freaks For The Festival” where they will be direct support for the Chris Robinson Brotherhood.

SEE WHAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING ABOUT THE BUFFALO KILLERS
“I have been into those guys for a long time. Back when they were in Thee Shams I brought them on the road with The Black Keys. I didn’t hear anything from them for a while after Thee Shams disbanded until the next thing I know the Buffalo Killers first record is coming out. I bought a copy of it and was stunned, like ‘Holy shit.’ They transformed from a good garage rock band to light years ahead of what they were doing in terms of songwriting, arrangement and harmonies.” – Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys
 
“One of the best (expletive) rock ‘n’ roll bands in the world.” – Chris Robinson from The Black Crowes
 
“Heavy on the heavy and with plenty of hooks” – High Times
 
“Buffalo Killers are back with Heavy Reverie, and they’re going for the throat with a record that should situate the band for full throttle rock stardom. They’ve brought along a new label (Sun Pedal Recordings – Warner Music Group), a new producer (the legendary Jim Wirt), and hell, they even mixed it on the Neve console that gave birth to Michael Jackson’s Thriller demos.” – Tony Conley / Rock Guitar Daily
“There’s something in the water in Ohio, and Buffalo Killers have sucked it down and are ready to share it far and wide” Hittin’ The Note
 
 
“The Cincinnati group keeps evolving into something bigger and with their last several releases they have established themselves as an act to follow.” – The Fire Note
“They’re Chris Robinson-endorsed and definitely have that rootsy sway of The Black Crowes at their finest – but there’s a stomp and a stamp that Buffalo Killers have produced that is all their own.” – Off The Tracks
“Buffalo Killers take aim at garage, swamp blues, ’60s psych, Canyon harmonies and Southern roots and land their prey every time.” – Nigel Williamson / UNCUT

“Golden nostalgic bliss…Cincinnati’s incredible Buffalo Killers will show you exactly where Kings of Leon went wrong.” – Chris Deville / THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

“Not many bands have mined a late hippie-era approach with more satisfying results.” – Mark Deming / ALL MUSIC

“Big riffs rule, and at no time more than the ’70s did they dominate the airwaves. Cincinnati’s Buffalo Killers evoke the blurry Polaroid sounds of those years, grooving like Foghat one minute, recalling the melodic gold of Badfinger another, and utterly, unironically rocking like ZZ Top. There’s nothing quite as simple and effective as a “’power trio.’ The three were members of the dearly departed garage rock outfit Thee Shams, but Buffalo Killers isn’t three chord frat rock at all. The songs are thick and greasy, and listening to the trio live, you can see why they’ve made fans of The Black Keys and The Black Crows.” – Jason Woodbury / PHOENIX NEW TIMES

“Buffalo Killers definitely have a cool Joe Walsh/James Gang influence in their sound. I dig ‘em.” – Alice Cooper / NIGHTS WITH ALICE COOPER

“Cincinnati trio Buffalo Killers find that drawing from ‘60s and ‘70s rock icons continues to provide fresh ideas filled with a tunefulness and musical vocabulary that is indebted to rock’s golden era with a refreshing vibrancy.” – Kyle Melton / DAYTON CITY PAPER
