Nashville-based alt-rock trio PAPER ROUTE will head out on their second tour in support of their third full-length album Real Emotion, when they hit the road this February supporting K.Flay on her U.S. headlining tour. Kicking off February 4th in Las Vegas, NV, the tour will hit major cities including Nashville, Atlanta and New York (see full routing below). For tickets and full list of shows, visit the band’s website.
The band will make their national TV debut on February 1st on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” when they perform their new single “Balconies,“ which will impact Alternative radio nationwide this month.
Real Emotion — featuring singles “Laugh About It,““Chariots,““Balconies“and “Writing On The Wall“ — was released September 23rd on RAL/Sony Music Ent. Blending digital-age pop/rock with ambient vocals over 16-tracks, the album was produced and written by JT Daly (vocals, keyboards, percussion), Chad Howat (bass, piano, programming) and Nick Aranda (guitar) and is available now on all digital platforms and as a double vinyl (purchase links below).
PAPER ROUTE first conjured up their melody-driven take on electronic-leaning alt-rock back in 2004. Over the next few years, the band split their time between touring with arena-filling acts like Paramore and sharing smaller stages with the likes of Thurston Moore and Mark Kozelek (their fellow performers at SXSW 2008’s Lou Reed tribute show). They released their full-length debut Absence in 2009 and their second LP The Peace Of Wild Thingsin 2012. Charged with the raw energy that PAPER ROUTE has revealed in touring the world with bands like Imagine Dragons, Passion Pit and Mutemath, Real Emotion achieves that feeling in part by making guitars central to its intricately crafted arrangements.
