Buffalo Killers are an American rock band comprising brothers Zachary
and Andrew Gabbard with Joseph Sebaali. Quickly signed to Alive
Records after sending a burnt CD with just their telephone number and
name on it, their self-titled debut album was released in October of

Buffalo Killers drew the attention of Chris Robinson, who invited the
band to open a string of dates for The Black Crowes. That road trip
spawned the songs for the band's second long player, Let It Ride,
produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach.

Most recently, the Buffalo Killers collaborated with Kelley Deal on
the just released Sing For Your Meat: A Tribute to Guided By Voices,
and on August 2nd the Cincinnati-based trio will be releasing their
new self-produced album "3" on Alive Records (available on CD,
Digitaland Colored Vinyl in both blue and purple - limited to just 500
copies each color). Their summer tour of The States kicks-off June
15th in Dayton, with dates across the pond to follow.

“What the Jesus and Mary Chain were to the '80s, Buffalo Killers may
well be to this decade, brilliantly bringing the beloved sounds of
yesterday into a new millennium." - Jo-Ann Greene / ALL MUSIC GUIDE

"I have been into those guys for a long time. Back when they were in
Thee Shams I brought them on the road with The Black Keys. I didn't
hear anything from them for a while after Thee Shams disbanded until
the next thing I know the Buffalo Killers first record is coming out.
I bought a copy of it and was stunned, like 'Holy shit.' They
transformed from a good garage rock band to light years ahead of what
they were doing in terms of songwriting, arrangement and harmonies." -
Dan Auerbach in JamBase

“There's another band like that I really love, from Cincinnati, the
Buffalo Killers. They're a three-piece Midwestern rock'n'roll band -
really f**king good songs." - Chris Robinson in MOJO
