the return of Buffalo Tom

Artist of the Month

The Spectre of Buffalo Tom looms as 2011 approaches

FIRST RECORD IN 4 YEARS - Hometown heroes and zeitgeist legends Buffalo Tom return this winter to release a new album. On February 15th, the band will release their eighth full-length album. Skins is the first release on the band’s own Scrawny Records via a worldwide partnership with The Orchard, and features guest Tanya Donnelly of Belly, Breeders and Throwing Muses fame singing on the song “Don’t Forget Me.” Besides the standard CD, a deluxe edition will be available with demos and b-sides, as well as a vinyl version with a download card featuring the additional songs.

Skins, the followup record to Three Easy Pieces (2007), was produced right here in Boston. It was mixed by Paul Q. Kolderie (who produced Buffalo Tom's Let Me Come Over - 1992) and Tom Polce. Still comprised of the original trio of Bill Janovitz (guitars and vocals), Chris Colbourn (bass and vocals) and Tom Maginnis (drums), the songwriting is as sharp and poignant today as it ever was. Just listen to this track! Let me say it for you; "can't wait for this record!"
