Earache Records announces a European deal with California-based recording artist The White Buffalo for his new album, Love And The Death Of Damnation.
Led by singer/songwriter Jake Smith, The White Buffalo is probably best known for his numerous song placements in the TV series Sons Of Anarchy, including the series finale song “Come Join The Murder”, a song co-written by series producer Kurt Sutter and nominated for an Emmy for ‘Outstanding Music And Lyrics’.
Recorded at Unison Music Studios with producers Bruce Witkin and Ryan Dorn, Love And The Death Of Damnation features a brand new set of authentic and evocative bad-ass dark blues tracks including Smith’s first ever duet, “I Got You”, featuring vocalist Audra Mae (the great-great-niece of Judy Garland who sings on Avicii’s smash hit “Addicted To You”).
Love And The Death Of Damnation is released today in the US on Unison Music and will be available on digital platforms in Europe beginning from next week. The album will be released on CD and vinyl in Europe in early 2016 with additional bonus material. Pre-order Love And The Death Of Damnation now in Europe at this location.
Jake Smith talks about the album: “With this album, I really wanted to get back to songs… I wanted to get back to writing individual stories, as opposed to an extended narrative. I wanted each song to make you feel something. In the past, the songs have almost always been pretty dark. But this time, I was also able to channel some happier stuff and write a couple of actual feel-good songs. It’s also more varied musically. I really made an effort to expand my sound, and to get out of my comfort zone as a songwriter.”
Love And The Death Of Damnation tracklisting:
“Go the Distance”
“Radio With No Sound”
“Home Is In Your Arms”
