King Buffalo is proud to announce their 4th Full-Length Record to be self-released on December 3, 21 throughout North America and see European issue via Stickman Records. Watch the trailer for “Acheron” through the YouTube player below:
What will inevitably be known as ‘the cave record,’ “Acheron” is the second King Buffalo LP of 2021. It follows Spring’s “The Burden of Restlessness” and finds the Rochester, New York, trio of guitarist/vocalist Sean McVay, bassist Dan Reynolds and drummer Scott Donaldson expanding their sound once again.
To put the four extended songs of “Acheron” to tape, the band traveled three hours east from Rochester to Howe Caverns in NY, recording with trusted engineer Grant Husselman and videographer Adam Antalek – who worked on their “Quarantine Sessions” early in 2020 – to document a day-long live session in a cave. In the cave. “Underground” in the most literal sense.
“The undertaking of recording and filming in a cave was way more intense than we anticipated. With each of the planned 2021 records, we knew they had to be different. By removing ourselves from the comfort of our studio and tracking and filming LIVE hundreds of feet underground, we’ve done something unique in many ways. We can’t wait for everyone to be able to see and hear it.” – Scott Donaldson
