Just last spring we sat down with Bill Janovitz at Boston Calling to discuss life, music, and festivals, at one point touching on a potential new Buffalo Tom album. It’s been seven years since the Boston-born alt-rock trio returned with the still-essential Skins LP, and Janovitz, along with bandmates Chris Colbourn (bass) and Tom Maginnis (drums), seem to have settled into a nice rhythm as an active band immersed in the craziness of so-called “real life.” Last year they spent some time performing anniversary shows for 1992’s Let Me Come Over, but last month’s vibrant Quiet & Peace proves this is no nostalgia act. “It was an interesting head space to be in,” Janovitz tells the L.A. Times. “We look at this, like anybody else does in their life, as a continuum. Twenty-five years from our third record until last year, was quite a dramatic thing. Twenty-five years. But, man, I felt like, ‘I can’t believe it’s been since 2011 since our last record.'” As Buffalo Tom plays a sold out Paradise Rock Club tonight (April 20), stream the band’s new record, remarkably, their ninth studio album, and remember to let life move along at a pace that inspires.
