Bison b.c. Premieres New Song, "Two-Day Booze"

Vancouver's Bison b.c. is set to release their 3rd album, and 2nd with Metal Blade Records, "Dark Ages," on April 13th. Stereogum.com, in addition to sponsoring their current tour with High On Fire, will also be exclusively premiering the new Bison b.c. track, Two-Day Booze. You can hear the track now on Stereogum.com.

A bison is "a big, hairy, strong animal," says James Farwell, who plays guitar and sings for Bison b.c. That could as just as well describe the band, which rose from the ass-end of the continent in Vancouver, Canada, to utter its doomed, plaintive call, and tramples through the constellations on its four shaggy limbs (James, Dan And, Masa Anzai, and Brad Mackinnon). Ghostly, windswept prairies, the mythical haunts of native lore: it is all there. Self-described "Canadian dirtbags" and veterans of Vancouver's deep thrash and indie scenes, they are hitting their stride and offering up a new soundtrack for our last party before certain extinction. There is illness, abuse, apocalypse, and French horn.

"Dark Ages" was recorded by Jesse Gander, who also recorded Quiet Earth, at The Hive Creative Labs in Burnaby, British Columbia and was mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music.
