Current Swell Unveil New Record 'Buffalo'

The Victoria band will also be heading on tour this fall
Current Swell Unveil New Record 'Buffalo'
Victoria roots-rock outfit Current Swell have announced they have a brand new record due this fall. It's called Buffalo, and it will arrive October 16 on Nettwerk.

Buffalo was produced by Colin Stewart with no time constraints. The band's relaxed approach is reflected in the easy-going nature of the album's first single "High Life," which Bassist Louis Sadava said signals the band's changing priorities.

"It's not necessarily a song about getting older," he said in a statement. "It's about getting wiser and having more refined tastes. The things that fulfill us aren't the same as they used to be; family has definitely become a bigger priority, and we might opt for an adventure in nature rather than a night on the town."

Current Swell are currently on a short break from their North American tour, which began earlier this year, but they're set to head back out on the road soon.

They'll perform in several Canadian cities, starting in Edmonton on October 31, making stops in Toronto on November 29 and Montreal on December 1 before wrapping up in Washington, D.C., on December 7. The full schedule can be seen below.
