Loud & Proud Records Releases WP2 Today!

The long-awaited Walking Papers second album, WP2, is out today!

Rock ‘N’ Load Magazine said of WP2 in their 10/10-star review, “It may only be January, but WP2 could be one of the albums of the year.” Pure Grain Audio in their recent 8.5/10 Star review, “In 2013, a criminally overlooked debut album by Walking Papers saw its release…Walking Papers was indeed one of the best rock albums of that year…It felt like four multi-talented musicians coming together to craft some beautiful music, and the world was a better place because of that albums’ existence. So, listen up good people, because lightning has indeed struck twice…”

WP2 is the follow up to their 2013 critically acclaimed debut album that Rolling Stone called “…dark, alternately sensual and sinister.” USA Today said, “Sometimes an album sounds nothing like you expect yet still blows you away… It’s powerful yet nuanced, a kind of rock confident enough in itself that it rarely needs force to make its point.” Consequence Of Sound said, “It’s a record that largely eschews typical hard rock fare, opting instead for a blues rock that slinks and wafts as much as it crunches and blusters. This unlikely dynamic makes Walking Papers a pink slip you’ll actually be happy to get.”

Walking Papers will be playing a special album release show in Seattle on January 27 at The Crocodile, more tour dates will be announced soon.
