WKU Herald Underground: Buffalo Rodeo

Buffalo Rodeo, a band formed and based in Bowling Green, has emerged as another local band poised to make noise on the national scale.

Lead singer Zach Preston described the band’s sound as “loud, indie progressive rock.” The band is often likened to Kings of Leon. Preston said the group was a major influence when Buffalo Rodeo started, but pointed to an array of artists as inspirations as well.

“When we started, it was really influenced by Kings of Leon because that was what we were listening to,” he said. “Right now, we’re really influenced by Portugal. The Man and Local Natives.”

In November, the band will embark on their largest tour yet, a three-week excursion through the south.
