Hailing from Pullman, Wash., Buffalo Death Beam is an eclectic mix of modern, folk-inspired melodies with eerily beautiful harmonies. 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 names while playing a board game. Since their inception, Buffalo Death Beam has performed with Horse Feathers, Local Natives, Y La Bamba, Joe Pug, Cedric Watson (Grammy Nominee) and Jack Wilson. 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.” They released their first EP in December of 2009 and released their Debut Full Length album "Salvation for Ordinary People" in January of 2011. Both CD's were mixed and mastered by Jon Ervie in Seattle, WA.
