The Buttertones’ Gravedigging is more a movie waiting to happen than an album—or a soundtrack just waiting to inspire a movie, with scene after scene of action, tension and release set to a sound that takes everything good and true about American music before the Beatles prettied it up (surf, sweet soul, the boss saxophone-overdrive garage of the Northwest wailers like the Sonics) and matches it to punk energy, post-punk precision and the kind of personality that blows the circuit-breakers at a backyard party. Recorded at Jazzcats studio in LongBeach—home-away-from-home to fellow Innovative Leisure artists Hanni El Khatib, Tijuana Panthers, Wall of Death and more—in the spring of 2016, the sessions were supercharged with hard-won live experience from endless street-level shows and relentless midnight-to-six rehearsals at the Buttertones lock-out. Think of it this way: you might not yet know how the band that made Gravedigging is going to land—but you know it’s going to hit hard.

For Fans Of: The Cramps, The Gun Club, Car Seat Headrest, Black Lips, King Tuff, Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Dan Sartain

“…their music is built around an energetic and lively pulse, it’s an exhilarating listen.” -The Listening Post

“It’s rare that a band can cohesively integrate dreamy 50s and 60s rock into the standard garage rock structure with finesse.” – The Baitshop
