“With songs that speak to Canada’s much-mistreated indigenous population, Bowles and Comeau are counter-culturalists for our times, with one eye on the legacies of Rush, Yes and Genesis, and another firmly on the present, raising awareness of injustices that have too often gone unseen by the wider world.”

26 AUGUST 2021 (TORONTO, ON) – Juno Award-winning, powerhouse rock duo Crown Lands – Cody Bowles (vocals and drums) and Kevin Comeau (guitar, bass, and keys) – reveal details of their upcoming EP, White Buffalo, set to release September 16 through Spinefarm Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The four-track record includes the previously released title track “White Buffalo” and the thirteen-minute, multi-part composition “The Oracle” along with two new songs; “Inner Light,” the band’s first-ever instrumental track plus “The Witching Hour (Electric Witch),” a reinterpretation of a song they recorded for their acoustic EP, Wayward Flyers Volume 1.
Crown Lands recorded this project with Grammy Award-winning, Toronto producer David Bottrill (Tool, Mastodon, Rush, Peter Gabriel). In anticipation of its release, the band divulge what people can expect, “the White Buffalo EP rounds out the experience of ‘White Buffalo’ and ‘The Oracle.’ ‘Inner Light’ and ‘The Witching Hour (Electric Witch)’ highlight our obsession with complex meter & harmonization. ‘Inner Light’ is the first Crown Lands instrumental, and we could not be prouder of it. We have continually pushed the boundaries of what two people can do.” They continue, “This is an ever-growing project and we are hopping back into the studio with David Bottrill to expand upon the themes presented in this body of work.”
