Buffalo Death Beam / Bio

Hailing from Pullman, Wash., Buffalo Death Beam is an eclectic mix of modern, folk-inspired melodies with eerily beautiful harmonies. The blend of acoustic riffs with violin, banjo, mandolin and piano create a striking back drop to their stunning vocals and inventive lyrics.

Buffalo Death Beam formed in January of 2009 after band members, Curt Krause (vocals, guitar) and Chris Kiahtipes (percussion), met in 2008 at Washington State University. Through the twos’ connections, they formed Buffalo Death Beam – a name created by a friend assigning team titles while playing a board game.

Since their inception, Buffalo Death Beam has performed with Horse Feathers, Ah Holly Fam’ly, M Bison, Cedric Watson (Grammy Nominee) and Yarn Owl. They have a large local following and a dedicated fan base. After performing together for three months, The Inlander, a weekly entertainment publication out of Spokane, Wash., called them, “The best kept secret in the Palouse.”

Mixed and mastered by John Ervie, Buffalo Death Beam will release their first, self-titled EP in December of 2009 and plan to tour North America in the spring and summer of 2010.
