On September 10, The White Buffalo releases his new record ‘Shadows, Greys, and Evil Ways’ (Unison Music Group). NPR All Songs Considered has called songwriter Jake Smith “an amazing storyteller” and these 14 songs trace the life story of Joey White, a small town outsider who goes to war and returns home only to find more violence as he struggles to readjust to a life away from the front lines and reconcile with the girl he left behind.

Entertainment Weekly premiered the track “Joey White” today, listen here:http://shorefi.re/WhiteBuffEW

“I look at the whole thing as a love story,” says Smith. “The beginning is their meeting, and because of his need and want to support her, he goes off to war, which starts his downward spiral.”

Recorded at LA’s Unison Music Studios and produced by the Grammy-nominated team of Bruce Witkin and Ryan Dorn, ‘Shadows, Greys, and Evil Ways’ sees the core trio of Jake Smith, bassist Tom Andrews, and drummer Matt Lynott joined by the likes of drumming legend Jim Keltner on “Don’t You Want It” and ex-Jayhawk Jessy Greene.

The White Buffalo has had songs included in both ‘Sons of Anarchy’ and ‘Californication,’ and his new song “The American Dream” is included on the soundtrack to ‘The Lone Ranger,’ starring Johnny Depp, next month. Filter has said “influenced by musicians ranging from Bad Religion to Tom Waits, The White Buffalo is ready to break through and stampede into your speakers” and American Songwriter has praised his “deft songwriting chops and a booming whiskey voice.”

The White Buffalo hits the road this summer including shows in NYC (8/4), Philadelphia (8/6), and DC (8/7). More dates to be announced soon.
