CD SHIPPING ONLY **Available on liquid blue 180gr. vinyl** What will inevitably be known as ‘the cave record,’ Acheron is the second
King Buffalo LP recorded in 2021. It follows this 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.Both records – and an intended third in
the series to follow in 2022 – were born
of the pandemic-era touring shutdown,
as evinced by the grim themes of The
Burden of Restlessness. Acheron –
named for the “river of woe” in Greek
mythology – brings the tension and
disquiet of the prior offering into a new
context.
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. “Underground” in
the most literal sense.
In sound, Acheron is likewise spacious
and fluid. If The Burden of Restlessness
showed the band's sharper angles,
Acheron adds complexity to the shape
of the whole. In some ways, the wash of
tone in “Zephyr” will be familiar to those who took on 2018’s Longing to Be
the Mountain or the band’s 2016 debut,
Orion – let alone any of the four EPs
they’ve done along the way – but in
“Shadows” and “Cerberus,” the band’s
intent becomes clear.
The tracks on King Buffalo's new
output are not just isolated songs from a
single writing period which frame a
different side of their style. They tell a
story as much about their sonic growth
as about that time they loaded all their
gear into a cave (no easy feat) and hit
record. Acheron pushes forward from
The Burden of Restlessness, which - still
just months old - was received by fans as
an immediate album-of-the-year
contender. It takes the communion with
and contemplation of the organic that’s
been so much a part of who King
Buffalo were before and uses it to
inform who they’ve become, are still
becoming.
