Walking Papers - Full Performance (Live on KEXP)

NEW PRESS RELEASE: Walking Papers have confirmed their first ever dates in The Netherlands, Germany, Ireland, and Scotland. "Walking Papers are very pleased to be returning to Europe twice this spring and summer, as we play our first ever shows in Holland, Germany, Ireland, and Scotland, as well as returning to France and England, where we debuted the band last November. We are also excited to be appearing at England's Download Festival on June 14th & 15th and Estonia's Summer Rock Festival on June 16th. Again the line up will be myself on drums, Jeff Angell on guitar and vocals, Duff McKagan on bass, and Ben Anderson on keys. We even have some brand new songs to play, from our forthcoming second album." - Barrett Martin

The 13 shows starting on April 27th in Tilburg, Netherlands are in support of their brilliant self titled debut album. Walking Papers show that a great song can be conveyed through percolating marimbas, vibraphone, piano, and trumpet, just as easily as it can with thundering drums, bass, and a howling guitar. The songs on this album stand alone as individual stories, but taken together as a whole they tell a much larger narrative that conveys the tales of wandering souls, the collisions of will, and the dark beauty of the American heart. There is also a guest appearance from Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready on two of the album's tracks. 

Walking Papers debut album has been hailed as: 

"A masterpiece of mood and tension." - Classic Rock 
"If Mick, Keith, and Tom Waits went down to the early Zeppelin rehearsals and sat in a few songs." - The Stranger
"If they are as good live as they sound on the album then their shows will be phenomenal." - With Guitars 
"Compelling." - Kerrang 
"The coolest band in the world right now." - Scott Rowley Editor In Chief, Classic Rock Magazine
