Toadhouse's 1st full length album "Bufo" will be released September 20th!!
Check out the event page for details on our very special CD release party!
About the album
We decided to name the album Bufo after a genus of about 150 different species of true toads. The Latin word Bufo means toad. We felt this related to our music in the sense that we have tried to record our music in its truest form.
This album was recorded over the months of February and March 2014, in Simcoe, at Morrison Studios. We wanted to keep our album as similar as possible to our live show. For the most part the tracks were recorded live off the floor.
After many long hours and late nights we have given you our best... yet. With a lot of guidance from our producer Ryan Morrison and our spiritual guru Floyd, we feel that we have captured our live sound on our first full length album of original material.
