The American rock band BUFFALO KILLERS released a video for "Need A Changin’” on Oct 20, 2017. After the horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas that took place Oct. 1, guns and gun violence have been on everyone’s mind this month. BUFFALO KILLERS’ Zach Gabbard has been thinking about it as well, having dealt with a gun-related incident at his child’s school.
He wrote a song a few days after dealing with the frightening event, “Need a Changin,'” which addresses his jumble of emotions.
Gabbard say of the track: “The lyrics for ‘Need a Changin’’ came to me a few days after [the school shooting]. On top of dealing with your own s***, you have to constantly relive it through the disgusting media circus that descends upon your community. When it’s too much to feel, you gotta sing.
“On a lighter note, the video comes from a longstanding theory of mine that all joggers are listening to Spoon,” he adds. “That’s not a diss. I love Spoon.”
On Oct. 20, the band’s eighth studio album, Alive and Well in Ohio, was released via Alive Naturalsound Records. The set was recorded at their Howler Hills Farm, Middletown, Ohio on analog studio on their own terms. Equipped with only the knowledge they had gained over the years, the band crafted this album without rules or pressure and is inspired by seasons of change, life, longing, love, and family. Pull up the faders and you can hear the guys singing, stomping, clapping and bleeding into each other's mics... on their own time, in their own space. They captured the melodies as they emerged.
Created and produced by songwriting brothers Zachary and Andrew Gabbard, the warm, consciously imperfect, and raw sound finds its inspiration in seasons of change, life, longing, love, and family. The universal truth that the only constant is change is woven throughout the 12 songs.
Today’s tune "Need A Changin’” is taken from "Alive And Well In Ohio”. Video Directed by Patrick Bertram Hague. Enjoy!
