King Bison, a heavy, bluesy, riff rock band from southeastern Pennsylvania.

Born from the ashes of a defunct local rock outfit Chris and Dean set out to create a new band that took elements from all the music they loved and combine it into one. After musicians coming and going they finally found fellow bandmate Jason who rounded out the line-up perfectly. Their take on some classics from the 70's is a revamping of energy and heaviness. Their originals harken back to that era in rock music adding a modern edge. Check out the band coming to a venue near you soon.

Not to be confused with New York’s King Buffalo, Michigan’s Bison Machine or any number of other large mammals in the well-populated fur-covered contingent of American heavy rockers, King Bison make their self-titled debut via Snake Charmer Coalition, comprising seven riffy bruisers owing a deep debt to Clutch and, in that, reminding a bit of their Pennsylvanian countrymen in Kingsnake. 

Songs like “One for the Money” and “March of the Sasquatch” signal a watch for stoner-roller grooves to come in “Queen of the South” and “Pariah,” the dudeliness of the proceedings practically oozing from the speakers in the gruff vocals of guitarist/vocalist Chris Wojcik, who’s joined in the trio by bassist Dean Herber and drummer Scott Carey. 

The penchant for booze and blues, ladies and US auto manufacturing holds firm in “Night Ride” and the slower “I’m Gone,” and while one might expect a closer called “Space Boogie” to flesh out a bit, King Bison instead reinforce the foundation they’ve laid all along of Southern-style heft, remaining light on pretense and heavy on riffs.
