Avi Buffalo have revealed details of their long-awaited second album.
They will release ‘At Best Cuckold’, the follow-up to their self-titled 2010 debut, on September 8. It is 10 tracks long and produced by frontman Avi Zahner-Isenberg, with assistance from band member Sheridan Riley. Speaking about the album, Zahner-Isenberg has said the album is a ‘tribute to the ballad’. He commented:
“I really like some of the ballad aspects of this record — it’s kind of my tribute to the ballad. I predicted in an interview during the time of my first record what I was going to use in my next record, and I said a lot of major seventh chords, which, to me, sounded like laying down. And that ended up in the record, too.” The band are trailing the release of the album with the single ‘So What’, which you can listen to by clicking above.
The ‘At Best Cuckold’ tracklisting is:
‘Memories of You’
‘Can’t Be Too Responsible’
‘Two Cherished Understandings’
‘Overwhelmed With Pride’
‘She is Seventeen’
‘Think It’s Gonna Happen Again’
