NEWS: PAPER LIONS ANNOUNCE NATIONAL TOUR DATES AND SHOWCASE AT POP MONTREAL IN SUPPORT OF NEW 'AT LONG CREEK' ACOUSTIC EP


The tireless Charlottetown indie pop-rockers, Paper Lions, announce a new cross-country fall tour to support their recently released At Long Creek acoustic EP.  After a busy spring and summer performing and recording their most recent EP and their upcoming sophomore album, the band is set to hit the road once more. The tour, presented by Exclaim! Magazine, will take the band through over twenty stops from coast to coast and includes 2 performances at Pop Montreal in mid-September.

As the year draws to a close, 2012 proves to be one of the most productive that Paper Lions have had. Early in the year, their music video for "Travelling" hit one million views on YouTube. Presently it's nearing the 2 million mark! Their At Long Creek acoustic EP was released as a free download this summer and quickly became the feel-good soundtrack of the season across the Canadian blogoshere and CBC airwaves. Music mogul Alan Cross described its undeniable charm as "acoustic friendliness" and it has since been downloaded over 10,000 times. Still, their drive and love for music is insatiable. Recently, members of the band have found a new way to engage their local community by initiating Charlottetown Pop, the city's newest music festival which will open in 2013. On top of the all the activity, Paper Lions have finished recording their sophomore, full-length. Fans can expect a winter 2012 release.
