Crown Lands Share Expansive White Buffalo Project, Includes Two Previously Released Tracks 

RECORDED WITH GRAMMY-AWARD WINNING PRODUCER DAVID BOTTRILL 
 
13-DATE HEADLINING TOUR ACROSS CANADA KICKS OFF OCTOBER 15 IN WINNIPEG 
 
 
“White Buffalo’s title track represents the completion of a trilogy, drawing parallels between Indigenous peoples and the hunted buffalo of their homeland. Along with the three other tracks on the EP, it’s more refined than their early work but rocks more urgently. Punk spirit in a luxury prog package.”–

16 SEPTEMBER 2021 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, Juno Award-winning, powerhouse rock duo Crown Lands – Cody Bowles (vocals and drums) and Kevin Comeau (guitar, bass, and keys) – release the ambitions White Buffalo record through Spinefarm Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The four-track project combines the previously released title track “White Buffalo” and the thirteen-minute, multi-part composition “The Oracle” along with two new songs; “Inner Light,” the band’s first-ever instrumental track plus “The Witching Hour (Electric Witch),” a reinterpretation of a song they recorded for their acoustic EP, Wayward Flyers Volume 1.
 
Fans can listen to the White Buffalo in full now. As well, Crown Lands celebrate the upcoming release with limited edition White Buffalo merchandise including new Vinyl, CD and cassette, available to order HERE

Crown Lands recorded this project with Grammy Award-winning, Toronto producer David Bottrill (Tool, Mastodon, Rush, Peter Gabriel). In speaking about “Inner Light,” the band explain their process, “the first Crown Lands instrumental but not the last. We wrote this with ‘80s King Crimson in mind. We wanted to see how far we could push ourselves as arrangers: this tune incorporates 12 string acoustics, tablas, and taurus pedals to great effect. This tune explores more complex metre than any other Crown Lands tune. The main theme is in 4/4 with a bar of 7/8 thrown in for good measure. The middle section alternates 15/8, 7/8, and 5/4 themes because why not!”
 
Crown Lands also describe the evolution of the track “Witching Hour (electric witch),” describing  “this song has gone through a long journey to arrive here. We wrote ‘The Witching Hour’ in our debut LP sessions and reinterpreted it as an acoustic number for Wayward Flyers Vol I. After playing it live it felt that it needed an electric version. David Bottrill helped realize the vision with a re-arranged bridge that explores 7/8 and 11/8 riffs.” 
 
“White Buffalo” which was released earlier this summer with “The Oracle,” is the third instalment of a trilogy of songs addressing Indigenous rights. The series of songs connect the past with “Mountain,” the present with ““End of the Road” while “White Buffalo” aspires to a prosperous future.
