Set.fm is excited to be recording and producing live shows on the White Buffalo's UK tour, and releasing the content to fans immediately after, via the set.fm platform, and collectible "Live Club" laminates!
"I've always taken great pleasure in being difficult to categorize," says the White Buffa-lo's big-voiced frontman, Jake Smith. Since releasing his first album in 2002, Smith has explored the grey area between genres, carving out a sound rooted in dark folk, countrified soul, cinematic storytelling and roadhouse-worthy rock. He keeps things unclassifiable on the White Buffalo's sixth album, Darkest Darks, Lightest Lights, the most hard-hitting, electrified album of his career.
Although recorded in Smith's hometown of Los Angeles, where he grew up listening to the country twang of George Jones and the pissed-off punk of Bad Religion, Darkest Darks, Lightest Lights looks to the passion and punch of White Buffalo's live shows for inspiration. Smith has been a road warrior for more than a decade, doubling as his own tour manager along the way. Gig after gig, he's built a cult following without a ma-jor label's support, boosting his band's international visibility with more than a dozen TV-worthy songs - including the Emmy-nominated "Come Join the Murder" - that were featured on shows like Sons of Anarchy and Californication.
"I'm kind of an island," he says proudly. "We tour on our own and have built our own fanbase, so the idea with this album was to capture that live feel - the passion that we produce in a stage setting - in a studio performance."
