Having shared the stage with the likes of Twenty One Pilots, New Politics, and Joan of Arc, alongside their own headlining West Coast tour, San Diego’s Big Bad Buffalo continues to generate a buzz in the local scene and beyond. The trio’s American debut from 2014 showcased a knack for smooth riffs and keen songwriting, with Jordan on vocals/guitar, Silvio on bass, and Alex on drums.
Two years later, the sonic buffalos have returned with their self-titled album, building upon previous singles like “She’s Just The Icing On The Cake” and “Sweet Tooth.” The 14-track collection demonstrates a refinement of their rock sound, standing as a perfect introduction for new faces and a warm welcome for returning listeners. With an array of guitar shredding, groovy bass lines, and upbeat drums, BBB guides us on a adventure fit for your headbanging and mosh pit needs.
BBB also shared a few kind words:
“We appreciate our good friend Andy writing this article—we’ve known him for years and his love for music is something we admire and we wish more people had the passion he does!”
