THE WHITE BUFFALO SIGNS EUROPEAN DEAL WITH EARACHE RECORDS

Earache Records is very proud to announce 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 http://www.earache.com/twb

THE WHITE BUFFALO's 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' track listing:

1. Dark Days
2. Chico
3. Go the Distance
4. Radio With No Sound
5. Home Is in Your Arms
6. I Got You
7. Modern Times
8. Last Call to Heaven
9. Where Is Your Savior
10. Rocky
11. Come On Love, Come On In

THE WHITE BUFFALO will be heading out on tour across the US and Canada this October, with plans to tour Europe in the near future.
