The Paper Kites To Release Sophomore LP ‘twelvefour’ This Friday; North American Tour Dates Announced
September 9, 2015 BY Nettwerk
“‘twelvefour‘ triumphantly breaks from it’s own restraints, optimistically and confidently pushing towards the impending sunrise…” – Rolling Stone Australia
With the upcoming LP twelvefour, Australia’s The Paper Kites craft a delicate yet dynamic album full of color and sound that properly captures the band’s evolution. The album is a mix of soulful storytelling and smooth synth moments. Determined to capture a bigger and bolder sound, the group travelled to Seattle to record with Grammy-nominated producer, Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Manchester Orchestra, Fleet Foxes).
Written entirely between midnight and four in the morning, twelvefour is a concept record thatexplores the theory that an artist’s creative peak lays within these hours. For two sleepless months lead singer/guitarist Sam Bentley worked, reversing his sleep patterns and penning 30 songs in his home studio. “I got to the end and thought, I’m never doing that again,” Sam laughs.
To support the release, the band returns to North America, starting with Los Angeles’ famed Troubadour and finishing up at New York’s Music Hall Of Williamsburg. The headline tour follows a nearly sold-out headline 2014 tour and a support slot with City & Colour. Full dates below.
