BISON b.c. to join Weedeater and Saviours for North American tour

July 27th, 2011

BISON b.c. are finally heading back out on the road this fall! The Vancouver, BC based riff-machine will be joining Weedeater, Saviours and Fight Amp from September 2nd in Lawrence, KS through October 14th in Savannah, GA. The tour will be BISON b.c.’s first full tour with new drummer Matt Wood.

 

James, Dan, Masa and Matt will be delivering songs from 2010′s Dark Ages, an album that Revolver Magazine heralded as “the best meat-and-potatoes stoner-metal record” of 2010, which also earned the a spot in the magazine’s top 20 albums of that year. Dark Ages also received praise from Decibel Magazine in that it was described to contain “thrash, smash and fuck-you-up energy that’ll soil your britches faster than a bottle of Mexican moonshine”. The Sacramento Press claimed that BISON b.c.’s “music is thunderous, bone-shaking and most of all, heavy. Really heavy. These cats have got their own gravitational pull.”

BISON b.c. Introduce new drummer and tour dates

June 12th, 2011

“A couple months back Brad told us he had made the difficult decision to leave the band. We lived and breathed music together for almost five years and it was a fucking honor to share the stage and create music with him, not to mention doing all kinds of fucked up shit that was fucking way fun. It was a hard decision for him, and we wish him all the best, and hey, we still go and get wasted together.

Enter Matt Wood. Masa and Matt used to play in a band called Goatsblood way back in the day, he also totally slays in a couple of local bands – congress and haggatha – so we invite him to come jam with us, purely out of pity. Turns out he’s pretty good for a drunk just shy of fifty. So, on behalf of Bison bc inc., we would like to welcome to the band, our new drummer, Mr. Matt Wood.” comments James Farwell

 

The other exciting news is that any minute now ‘Dark Ages’ will be available on LP – Gatefold Vinyl including Ltd edition Orange vinyl (250) from our friends at War on Music. To pre-order visit www.waronmusic.com

 

As well, BISON b.c. Will be on tour this month playing the following dates:

06.18 Vancouver, BC @ Rickshaw Theatre

06.23 Calgary, AB @ Dicken’s Pub (Sled Island Music Fest)

06.24 Calgary, AB @ Olympic Plaza (Sled Island Music Fest)

Where: El Corazon
109 Eastlake Ave. East Seattle, WA 98109
$18 ADV/$20 DOS

Comments guitarist/vocalist James Farwell: “It is a fucking honor to be sharing the stage with Eyehategod. Seattle should be in for a great time witnessing the carnage. I’m especially happy because I couldn’t afford to go otherwise.”

In related news, the bionic power of the band’s Dark Ages full-length, issued last year via Metal Blade Records, continues to annihilate unsuspecting listeners with its level of riff urgency. Dark Ages made its way on to a host of Year End lists including Revolver Magazine’s Top 20 of 2010 where the band was commended for releasing, “the best meat-and-potatoes stoner-metal record this year.” Check out the full review HERE.

BISON to tour Canada this month

October 6th, 2010

BISON b.c. will be touring in support of their most recent release Dark Ages, which just came out via Metal Blade Records on April 13 2010. Previous tours in support of Dark Ages have seen BISON b.c. out with bands such as High On Fire, Shadows Fall, Priestess, Kylessa, Baroness, 3 Inches of Blood, and just recently Helmet just to name a few. Since its release, Dark Ages has been met by praise from fans and critics alike. Here is what critics have been saying about the band’s third release and second for Metal Blade:

Bison b.c. thinks as epic as prehistoric predecessor Mastodon, with Thin Lizzy corollaries and a hardcore fifth gear with vocals to match.” The Austin Chronicle

“colossal, large, big as it gets, massive… They delivered a level of volume and energy that started everybody off six beers deep.” Decibel Magazine

Dark Ages is another strong outing from what is turning out to be a truly special band. More importantly for those in a constant pursuit of heaviness, Dark Ages is not the sound of the earth moving off its axis; it is the sound of Bison b.c. shoving it off with contemptuous rage.” Blabbermouth.net

NEW TOUR DATES:

10.12 Armstrong, BC @ The Branding Iron Pub
10.14 Saskatoon, SK @ Amigo’s
10.15 Brandon, MB @ Parthenon Pizza
10.16 Winnipeg, MB @ Royal Albert Hotel
10.17 Thunder Bay, ON @ Kilroy’s
10.19 London, ON @ London Music Hall
10.20 Ottawa, ON @ Cafe De Kcuf
10.21 Montreal, QC @ II Motore
10.22 Toronto, ON @ Sneaky Dee’s
10.23 Windsor, ON @ Blind Dog
12.10 Vancouver, BC @ Biltmore Cabaret

BISON b.c. Tour Canada this Fall

September 23rd, 2010

Vancouver BC’s BISON will be returning this fall to ON/QC Canada with their mighty mammoth sound starting Oct. 12 in Armstrong BC and ending Oct. 23 in Hamilton, ONT!
These dates are in support of their latest release “Dark Ages” that came out via Metal Blade Records on April 13/10.

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.

Their first Metal Blade release, Quiet Earth, showed what that earth’s last sound might be like. It was heavy, sick, and crazy; stomping and banging, elegiac with cello. Just beneath the rock they described a bad trip through a devastated world where resigned dignity and camaraderie with the friends that remain are the only consolations.

This mixture of rowdiness and gentleness is very much of their hard-living, hard-loving hometown: fucked-up modernity’s last outpost on the rim of a vast, menacing wilderness. In their new release, James sings, “Vancouver’s an empty bottle, our dying thirst causing problems. Stand at dawn, the beginning of something heartfelt and replaceable.” No matter where we are, this is what it has come to in this age. So let’s listen to these gentlemen and rock out together.

Relentless touring – with the likes of Priestess, Baroness, 3 Inches Of Blood, Shadows Fall, Helmet, Voivod, Kylessa, High On Fire and more – has fine tuned the band’s dedication to the riff to metallic perfection. Dark Ages breathes like a rabid animal that you’d find tied up in WINO’s backyard. It’s Flying V’s, analog perfection, loud & sludgy, played by hairy dudes in dirty denim jackets.

TOUR DATES:
10.12 Armstrong, BC @ Branding Iron Pub
10.14 Saskatoon, SK @ Amigo’s
10.15 Brandon, MB @ Parthenon Pizza
10.16 Winnipeg, MB @ The Royal Albert Arms
10.19 London, ON @ London Music Hall #
10.20 Ottawa, ON @ Dekcuf
10.21 Montreal, QC @ Il Motore
10.22 Toronto, ON @ Sneaky Dee’s
10.23 Hamilton, ON @ Casbah

BISON b.c. confirmed to hit the road Helmet this September!

July 20th, 2010

The East Vancouver based band BISON b.c., who have been called “heavy as fuck” by Thrasher Magazine, have just confirmed a two-week plus tour with legendary alternative metal band Helmet, who are known for fusing Zeppelinesque riffing with a vehement post-hardcore precision, augmented by dense chords and offbeat time signatures. BISON b.c. will join Helmet when the tour kicks off on Wednesday September 8th in Sacramento, CA at Harlow’s Night Club. The tour finishes up on Sunday September 26th at BriXton in Redondo Beach, CA.

Guitarist and vocalist James Farwell comments; “ I first started listening to Helmet when I was doing bonelesses and acid drops wasted in back alleys with big pants and small wheels; a long fucking time ago. Now my body is a jerk, but I still think of them when I drop tune – it is a fucking god damn honor to tour with Helmet.”

Sept. 8 Sacramento, CA Harlow’s Night Club
Sept. 10 Oakland, CA The Uptown
Sept. 11 San Jose, CA The Blank Club
Sept. 13 Portland, OR Dante’s
Sept. 14 Seattle, WA Showbox at The Market

BISON b.c. will be touring in support of their most recent release Dark Ages, which just came out via Metal Blade Records on April 13 2010. Previous tours in support of Dark Ages have seen BISON b.c. out with bands such as Priestess, Baroness, and 3 Inches of Blood, just to name a few.
