Alive Records artists Buffalo Killers return to The Union Bar & Grill on June 22 in support of their upcoming album, Dig. Sow. Love. Grow., due out August 7.

The Cincinnati-based band has been gaining steam since releasing their self-titled debut in 2006, which was followed by a string of dates opening for The Black Crowes in 2007.

During that tour, the group wrote much of the material for their second release, Let It Ride, produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.

Recently, Auerbach returned to his producer's chair to work with the band on two Eddie Hinton songs for a 45 rpm single to be released this summer on Shake It Records.

A single from Dig. Sow. Love. Grow. entitled "Get It" was released earlier this month on Alive Records' Soundcloud page.

Buffalo Killers still find the time to pass through Athens during their tours. However, with four full-length releases under their belt, solid ties with Dan Auerbach, several tours with national acts and almost 3,500 Facebook "likes," it's uncertain how much longer the band will be playing intimate venues such as The Union.

The doors open at 9 p.m. on Friday with hometown heroes Hex Net opening the show. Visit The Union's Facebook event page for details.
