WE HUNT BUFFALOBands
Their debut EP was released in 2010 and introduced a new band that in the words of the Georgia Straight, were “dedicated to tracking down and capturing the dying breed of rock and roll”. With a buzz around them in Vancouver, they crossed paths with Tanis Gibbons, apprentice to Colin Steward at ‘The Hive’ recording studio. 2011 would see them cut a full length LP with Tanis, working through the nights at the Burnaby studio. Discorder Magazine expressed “the trio definitely bring their own individuality to the sound, in a genre that can get fairly muddy” and “with bands like WHB around, it seems rock’n’roll is just fine”. Fueled by more local acclaim, the band continued to play regularly around Vancouver, seeing a growing fan base with every show.
We Hunt Buffalo continued to strive to play dirty, grimy rock and roll. In 2013 they released an EP, entitled “Blood From a Stone”. It was recorded at Nimbus School of Recording Arts by Alex ‘Condor’ Aligizakis. Exclaim! magazine comments on the title track: “…a fuzz-bomb riff that would make Tom Morello proud…Indeed this is a headbanger’s paradise.” In December 2013, the band was added as direct support to Monster Truck on their cross Canada tour. The remainder of the year saw them doing multiple tours of Eastern and Western Canada supporting the likes of Sleepy Sun, Band of Skulls and Biblical. They would close out 2014 with an appearance at Victoria’s Rifflandia Festival and a hometown show supporting Red Fang in Vancouver. They have also shared stages with Monster trucks, Chevelle, Matt Mays, Danko Jones, Steel Panther and Living Colour. Multiple tours of the region followed where they played with the Pack A.D, Electric Six and Nightseeker (Fubar’s Deaner).
Currently, the band has a new record in the bag, recorded by Jesse Gander (Bison, Japandroids, Anciients) at Raincity Recorders. It’s a full length album that promises to be their most dynamic record to date. They have just announced Western Canadian spring dates supporting Cancer Bats. Look for them not only in Canada, but the rest of the world, in the years to come.
