East Nashville-based, alt/roots rockers FLYING BUFFALOES prepare to take flight and continue their upward trajectory with the release of new music and new management. The group is pleased to announce that they have signed with Ontourage Management for exclusive representation and will be releasing a new single "A New Day is Gonna Dawn" on May 21 (available NOW for Pre-Order/Pre-Save HERE).
Co-written collectively by Flying Buffaloes and produced by Donnie Reis (Home Free, Lewis Brice, John McLaughlin, Emma Zander, Caroline Glaser, and more) at Twelve 3 South Recording, "A New Day is Gonna Dawn" features the group's trademark tight harmonies and soaring instrumental solos and reflects upon the group's approach to times of trouble--to fight through the darkness with positivity and light. The track was originally written for Flying Buffaloes 2019 debut album, LOADED & ROLLIN' (which earned well over 100,000 streams across all platforms...and counting), but ultimately, it did not fit the overall concept for that project. However, following the extreme turmoil of 2020 and its emotional impact on so many, Flying Buffaloes rushed to the studio earlier this year to deliver this message of hope for brighter days ahead at a time when they felt it was most needed.
About Flying Buffaloes:
Movement--a word that bears special meaning for Nashville-based Alt-Country rockers Flying Buffaloes. From their aptly-titled 2017 debut TAKING OFF EP and their 2019 debut album LOADED & ROLLIN’, to the band’s very name, they’ve had their sights set on a forward trajectory, no matter the obstacle.
The formation of the band is the quintessential Nashville story: five musicians, drawn like moths to the neon lights of the city’s famed Lower Broadway, converge to form a band. Fueled by their desire to deliver the organic energy of rock-n-roll coupled with the lyrical honesty of classic country, Flying Buffaloes have found themselves opening for a range of acts including iconic rockers Drivin N Cryin, as well as acclaimed Red Dirt Country artist Wade Bowen, in addition to headlining tours throughout the South and Midwest.
Between performance dates, Flying Buffaloes secured Grammy award-winning Jeremy Ferguson (Cage The Elephant / Andrew Combs) to produce LOADED & ROLLIN’. Recorded at Ferguson’s Battle Tapes Studio in East Nashville, the album explores the isolation and depression associated with immigration, the ups and downs of love, and the essence of what it means to be a working Nashville band.
When work and life came to a grinding halt in March 2020, the band refocused their energy on creating new music. The fruits of their labor will soon see new light. As evidenced by their upcoming single, “A New Day is Gonna Dawn,” (produced by Donnie Reis at his East Nashville studio, Twelve 3 South), the future is bright for Flying Buffaloes.
