“We can agree we know stress and big issues all too well. Sometimes though, it’s all the itty bitty things that eat away at your ability to cope. Sanity is an anthem for people who feel they just might break.” – Paperback guitarist/vocalist Owen Clell Smith
We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Paperback’s new song “Sanity” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming debut full length album Thirty-two Fifty, which is scheduled to be released on September 28, 2018 through Cardigan Records. You can pre-order the album here.
About the band:
Paperback originated as a creative outlet for some harsh feelings in 2015. The band has since evolved into an intense and passionate collaboration of four friends who want nothing more than to pour their hearts out to anyone who is willing to listen.
The band takes on a hard hitting blend of emo and punk rock that they like to call NC sad rock. Combined with a moving and energetic live show the band puts on a performance that is not to be missed.
Pushing hard in the beginning and finding their way through the DIY community, they released their EP Guilty Veins in January 2017. Following the release of the EP the band played over 110 shows throughout the year covering NC, the southeast, and the Midwest. In January 2018 they released “Growing Pains,” a single showing off a new progression and growth.
Playing everywhere from basements to festivals, Paperback continues to push hard into 2018 with hopes of spreading their music and passion to new listeners and friends.
