Buzzard, Buzzard, Buzzard have shared details of their second album.

The follow-up to the 2022 Welsh Music Prize nominated 'Backhand Deals' is called 'Skinwalker' and will arrive on April 12 via Communion Records. 

It was written and recorded at frontman and producer Tom Rees's Rat Trap studio, where Rees also produced material for rising acts such as Panic Shack, Do Nothing and The Bug Club.

Inspired by the Navajo legend of the Skinwalker, an evil shapeshifter, from which the record takes its name, it was previously teased with Therapy, and the earlier single Chew. Today, the Cardiff-based quartet have dropped a third taster in the form of the catchy, '70s funk-influenced National Rust. Rees commented:

"National Rust was my attempt at consolidating my 2020 obsession with Sly and the Family Stone with my 2021 obsession with David Bowie's album ‘Low’. It was the first song that really paved the way for the new album, it broke a lot of the sonic boundaries that I was writing within when starting the second album, “I AM NOT AFRAID OF PLAYING FUNKY GUITAR!”, I exclaimed, mu-tron in hand.

"Lyrically, it made a statement that informed my songwriting moving forward as well, being a flagrant rejection of my previous political song writing, and an admission of alienation amongst a plethora of information. 'National Rust' acts as a bridge between my younger, more political perspective, and my more recent, more apathetic one."

Ahead of the album's release, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard will embark on a previously scheduled UK tour in March. They're also set to appear at In It Together Festival in Margam, Wales, in May, following sets at Manchester's Fair Play and Bristol's Outer Town. Tickets are on sale now.
