Boston alt-rockers Buffalo Tom have announced their next LP, Jump Rope, the follow-up to 2018’s Quiet and Peace. It finds the group reuniting with producer David Minehan, recording the album at his Woolly Mammoth studios with additional help from John Agnello. Lead single ‘Helmet’ comes paired with a video directed by Marley Maginnis. Check it out below.
“As with most things in Buffalo Tom, we have a chemistry and a natural sound that emerges no matter how we try to manipulate it,” guitarist Bill Janovitz explained in a press release. “‘Helmet’ is a prime example of this phenomenon, a song that could be at home on any of our previous records, but I associate it mostly with the layered crisp sounds of Big Red Letter Day.”
