Just Hangin' Around, Waiting for June
A loose recounting of a conversation overheard at the most recent pAper chAse show at Rubber Gloves in Denton:
"You need anything from the bar?"
"No, I'm done at least until after the pAper chAse play."
"Um, 'K. Wait, why?"
"Dude, 'cause it's the pAper chAse. I can't be drunker than this or they'll scare the shit out of me."
Fact is, we haven't been able to sleep for three nights since the band posted three samples (along with one fantastically disturbing photo) from its upcoming release, Now You Are One of Us, on its Web site. Dario Argento would be proud. Thanks a lot, boys. But if these aural sneak peeks are any indication, we can't wait for the full frightening. Kill Rock Stars will release Now You Are One of Us on June 6, almost two years to the day after the pAper chAse's last release, God Bless Your Black Heart. --Merritt Martin
