Paper Route - Sxsw news
Some news from the Paper Route camp.
The band has just finalized management with Esther Creative Group in NYC which is home to such artists as Blonde Redhead, Langhorne Slim, Annuals & Lou Reed.
Speaking of Lou, while at SXSW the band was invited to play the Lou Reed tribute show which included performers like... My Morning Jacket, Thurston Moore, Moby, Yo La Tengo, Joseph Arthur and more. Paper Route performed 2 songs, the first of which was from Lou's Metal Machine Music album. Which was an album of nothing but guitar feedback at different speeds. They then performed "Vanishing Act", a song off of Reed's most recent The Raven album.
In other news the band has been in the studio hard at work recording for a new album which according to JT is looking like a fall or winter of 08 release?? You can currently hear 2 unreleased tracks "Carousel" and "Are we all Forgotten" which is one of the band's strongest tracks to date on their myspace.
