STREAM NEW A WILHELM SCREAM EP NOW AT HURLEY.COM

Today Paper + Plastick Records is proud to announce that fans can stream the long-awaited new A Wilhelm Scream EP exclusively at Hurley.com/live beginning today and will be available through Sunday, November 15th. After checking it out for free, fans can pick up the EP on iTunes, or head to www.paperandplastick.com on Monday, Nov 16 for an exclusive pre-order package, which includes a tour-only CD version of the EP, a limited edition poster and an immediate digital download. A vinyl pre-order will be announced shortly.

The band’s s/t EP is their first release in over two years, and finds the group expanding on their blend of technical punk and hardcore. Picking up where 2007’s Career Suicide left off, A Wilhelm Scream showcase their ability to shred on new cuts such as “Skid Rock” and “Bullet Proof Tiger,” while “Australias” and “Fun Time” are destined to become live favorites with big sing-along verses and choruses.

Having recently wrapped a tour of the US and UK, A Wilhelm Scream will be heading to Europe for a number of dates supporting Strike Anywhere and Hot Water Music. US tour plans are in the works for next year, but the band is already confirmed for Australia’s Soundwave Festival in February.

A WILHELM SCREAM SET RELEASE DATE FOR NEW EP AND DEBUT TRACK ON REVOLVERMAG.COM TODAY

Today Paper + Plastick Records is excited to unveil the track listing, album artwork and set a release date of November 20th for A Wilhelm Scream’s highly anticipated self-titled EP. In the label’s typical fashion, this EP will be available on 12” vinyl with a die cut gatefold jacket as well as available for digital download through the label’s website www.paperandplastick.com. To coincide with this announcement the band has teamed up with Revolver Magazine to premiere the track “Bulletproof Tiger,” which can be heard here: http://tinyurl.com/aws-tiger.

SELF TITLED EP TRACKLISTING
1) Australias
2) Every Great Story Has a Shower Scene
3) Fun Time
4) Bulletproof Tiger
5) Skid Rock

The band, who have released three albums in four years on Nitro Records, took some time off from the constant touring/writing/recording cycle of the past to focus on this new EP. Fans need not worry though, as the band is currently out on the road across the US, and will be making an appearance at this year’s edition of The Fest. “The reason for this long break from touring is because we took a crack at recording ourselves,” guitarist/vocalist Trevor Reilly recently stated. “This five song EP is an eclectic mix of all the avenues the band have gone down since Mute Print–and we’ll be throwing them into the sets on these upcoming tours.”

PAPER + PLASTICK RELEASE FRANK TURNER’S ‘THE FIRST THREE YEARS’

Paper + Plastick Records is proud to announce the release of U.K. anti-folk troubadour FRANK TURNER’s collection of demos, B-sides, live tracks and covers, collectively known as The First Three Years. The vinyl label, which normally includes a digital download of each album, will be releasing this double LP exclusively on wax beginning September 18th, which fans can purchase at www.paperandplastick.com.

Frank Turner is the future of British music,” says P+P founder Vinnie Fiorello, “And I don’t say that lightly. He channels Billy Bragg like he has Billy’s blood running through his own veins. The lyrics, the melodies, and the way he connects with the crowd makes him a contender to be the ONLY British import that matters. I’m honored to be able to release his early songs all packaged up in a fantastic looking double LP. Long Live Frank Turner!”

Turner’s solo career took off overseas after his London-based hardcore band Million Dead broke up in 2005. He recorded these 23 songs between 2005 and 2008, of which most were demos and B-sides that appeared on split releases or compilations in the U.K., but are all available for the first time this side of the pond on The First Three Years. A nod to a Black Flag album in both name and artwork, Three Years… also features Turner’s folky and haunting interpretations of songs from Black Flag and Bad Brains to The Lemonheads, The Postal Service and ABBA. Having released a new album earlier this month, Poetry Of The Deed, this collection comes just in time for fans to catch up on Turner’s earlier work and sing along while he is out on the road this fall currently supporting The Gaslight Anthem.

VINNIE FIORELLO INTRODUCES PAPER + PLASTICK RECORDS

Musician and entrepreneur Vinnie Fiorello officially announces the launch of his new endeavor, Paper + Plastick Records, based out of Gainesville, FL. Fiorello, who is a founding member of legendary ska/punk band Less Than Jake, and founder/former owner of the successful label Fueled By Ramen (Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, Yellowcard, Jimmy Eat World) is no stranger to running his own business, as he also has a designer toy line called Wünderland War, as well as an artist management company, SETAFIRE.

The independent label will take a new and alternative approach to music retail by selling the highest digital quality music files available, along with deluxe digital packaging. The label will also only release physical music on exclusive, multi-colored and oddly shaped vinyl, making all Paper + Plastick releases a must have for recording buffs, vinyl collectors and music fans alike.

Fiorello also plans to release music digitally via the Paper + Plastick website, www.paperandplastick.com, weeks before the music will be available on digital retail outlets such as iTunes, Amazon.com and Emusic.com. Music downloaded from retail outlets loose their integrity and bitrate, but music from PaperandPlastick.com will be high quality digital recordings. Two versions of each album will be available for purchase through the website with varying prices.
