NEWS: PAPER LIONS - Announce "MY FRIENDS" Sophomore Record Out August 20 & Summer Tour Dates

Press release via Freshly Pressed PR

My Friends, the new album from Charlottetown indie-rockers Paper Lions is set for release on August 20, 2013 via the band’s own label imprint, Fountain Pop Records. The 10-song collection captures a Polaroid of Prince Edward Island twenty-some years ago. Stories of love and pain, childish fights, best friends, beaches and forts; they evoke the melancholia of youth, remembered by someone not very far from it. Check out the trailer for the new album here:

Paper Lions have traveled the world on the strength of their last EP At Long Creek (2012) and debut album, Trophies (2010). Having built their reputation on sunny pop gems, the band’s nuanced song writing also has its darker clouds. Their tightly crafted, high-energy live show is not to be missed. As outlined below, the band will play select Canadian and U.S. shows this summer including a stop at NXNE in Toronto and two shows in New York City this June.

My Friends, was recorded with acclaimed Canadian indie-rock producer Howard Redekopp (Tegan and SaraThe New PornographersMother Mother) in Vancouver. Equally influenced by the clear-voiced harmonies of the Beach Boys and the clanging guitars of modern rock, at the heart of the band are long standing friendships and vibrant pop songs based on the sandy shores of their remote island province.
