Columbia Buffet Take Us Through Their New Album Track By Track

8 March 2016 | 11:31 am | Staff Writer

'How To Survive An Atomic Bomb' is out this Friday

Caboolture-bred rock crew Columbia Buffet have had a cracking first few months of 2016. Hot on the heels of a successful showing at the just-gone Bleach* Festival at the Gold Coast, the band are only days away from releasing their second studio full-length, How To Survive An Atomic Bomb (out this Friday).

To help prepare for the release, Columbia Buffet have given us a track-by-track, one-line-per-song rundown of the compositions contained on the album, and we've sussed a handy stream to boot, so you can spin it as much as you like over the next few days before it drops for real.
