As previously reported, fuzzed-out Vancouver psych-rock unit We Hunt Buffalo signed to Toronto-based label New Damage Records earlier this year and are currently completing work on their sophomore album. They're also gearing up to hit the road on tour with their labelmates Cancer Bats later this month, but before they do, Exclaim! has got the premiere of We Hunt Buffalo's latest single.
Titled "Back to the River," the new tune is a real barnburner. Chugging guitars, pummelling percussion and a healthy dose of distortion punch the listener in the face with a fist of heavy-hitting, sludged-out rock'n'roll. It's a menacing preview of what's to come on the forthcoming full-length, and you scroll past the band's upcoming tour dates to give it a spin in the player below.
