KING BUFFALO

THE BURDEN OF RESTLESSNESS

STICKMAN RECORDS


Format: CD
Cata No: PSYCHOBABBLE119CD
Barcode: 4046661717129
Self-recorded in late 2020 and early
2021 by guitarist/vocalist Sean Mc-
Vay, bassist Dan Reynolds and drummer
Scott Donaldson, The Burden of
Restlessness continues to push King
Buffalo’s progressive aspects forward
into new avenues of melody and exploration.
At the same time, the album is not
mistitled. There are deep undercurrents
of frustration and even an
aggressive pulse that coincide with
the spaciousness for which the band
has been so widely lauded since their
2016 debut, Orion. Guitarist/vocalist
Sean McVay drops what’s bound to
become one of the record’s signature
lyrics in opener “Burning” when he
declares, “another year lost in the
wasteland,” and more succinct summaries
of canceled plans and rescheduled,
lost or damaged lives are hard to
come by.
“The Burden of Restlessness was
written over the course of what most
would consider a pretty stark and
stressful time period. The end result
is our darkest, most aggressive, and
most intimate work to date. We are
extremely proud of what this record
became.” – Sean McVay
Followers of King Buffalo will find
the band’s time was not at all wasted.
While some of the synthesizer-driven
elements of early-2020’s Dead Star
EP have been stripped back, the
rhythmic complexity in The Burden of
Restlessness is yet more new ground
the band are claiming as their own.
They do so with confidence and a creative
depth of atmosphere that comes
through in more than just the effects
being used, and the urgency in their
material is unmistakable.
