HUGE congratulations to The Paper Boys for finding their new home with Kemosabe/Sony! We don't know about you guys, but we at PRF are getting pretty stoked for the future of PR. Good things come to those that wait...
Check out the official statement from the band below:
It is with much excitement that we announce our signing to Kemosabe/Sony Records. We are very confident in the things to come and can’t wait to share them with you.
Paper Route has been a band for 10 years. Throughout our history record labels have been a bit of a complicated subject. Presidents changing, team members changing, albums getting delayed, the story we’ve all heard too many times. When we decided to release our last album TPOWT ourselves it was one of the best decisions we have ever made, but we knew it was only a temporary decision. As you can imagine, our past has made us a bit apprehensive about trusting our art with another team/label. But we refused to be that bitter band you find in the back of every local show complaining about the record industry and crying wolf to every new artist. Evolve or die. This brings us to Kemosabe/Sony records. When we first sat down with them a few months ago it all seemed too good to be true. We have never met a team as focused, passionate, or real as them. It was effortless. We had found our new home. It is with much excitement that we announce our signing to Kemosabe/Sony Records. We are very confident in the things to come and can’t wait to share them with you. Now we can finish this album. Thank you for following us throughout all of this.
JT, Chad, Nick
We've known this for a bit, but it's so nice to finally give touring guitarist of 3 years, Nick Aranda, an officially official "welcome to the family" shoutout! Anyone who has gotten to meet Nick while on the road with PR over the years knows what a talent he is and that he is the perfect fit alongside Chad and JT. Plus, he's a pretty amazing human. We couldn't ask for a better addition and we look forward to all the great things to come of it!
Read a note about this below:
Forgive us for not updating you sooner. Things have been busy as always in the land of Paper Route. The biggest change that has happened recently is that we have added a new member to our band.
Nicholas J. Aranda has been playing guitar with us since 2012, touring with us full time in support of The Peace Of Wild Things. He has made JT and I better, and the roles in the studio are blurred more than ever now, which is so freeing. Music aside, Nick is a true artist and brings an energy to the band that we never had before. It’s difficult to put into words, especially when you are talking about concepts like band chemistry, but we know that the band feels glued together. We are stronger than ever, and the limited touring we’ve done recently has been the most joy filled experiences we’ve had on the road, and Nick is a huge part of that.
Find Nick online and welcome him to the official Paper Route family.
Chad & JT
P.S. We have MORE exciting news to announce very soon. Stay tuned.
For those wanting to reach out and give Nick a shoutout of your own, you can find him on Twitter (@nikolaka) and Instagram (@thenikolaka).
This Thursday night (April 9th / 7pm EST), Paper Route’s JT Daly will be hosting a radio broadcast on Fradio! He’ll be sharing some tunes and taking questions. Just download the (free) app and tune in on fradio.com!
(Chad and Nick will both have broadcasts as well in the coming weeks!)
Can't say we saw this coming.
Paper Route's new single, Zhivago, will be included in the upcoming The Sims 4 expansion, Get to Work.
Below is a fun rendering of Paper Route used in the announcement. To be clear, their song will be used in the game. You're free to create your own Paper Route band members within the game if your heart desires.
We're excited to hear Zhivago in Simlish!
