Buffalo Tom are coming up on their fortieth year of being a band, and the Boston based trio just released a brand new single. "Helmet" could be a lost B-side from the 90's. It has that alt-rock with some hints of country that Buffalo Tom perfected thirty years ago, although I never would have admitted that back then. This one is just under two and a half minutes of a rambin' kinda mid-tempo rocker that is going to press the nostalgia button for a lot of us despite being brand new. It's a little bit slower than most of Buffalo Tom's classic songs, but that's to their credit with "Helmet."
Guitarist Bill Janovitz says of the new single:
You can watch the video for "Helmet" below. Jump Rope, Buffalo Tom's tenth studio album, is due out later this year. For more on Buffalo Tom, check out the band's website.
