WALKING PAPERS ADDED AS SUPPORT TO MONSTER TRUCK CANADIAN TOUR
Seattle band, Walking Papers has been added to Monster Truck’s extensive Canadian tour, kicking off in Vancouver on December 4. Complete tour listing below. Tickets are on sale now.
Walking Papers (Jeff Angell, Barrett Martin, Duff McKagan, Benjamin Anderson) are the latest group to follow the Northwest’s tradition of musical invention and envelope-pushing. Jeff Angell has long been Seattle’s well-kept secret, and perhaps one of America’s best songwriter’s at this very moment. Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees, Mad Season) saw an opportunity to collaborate with Jeff Angell in the studio in the spring of 2012; the guys called some friends to join in on the experiment. Duff McKagan (Guns ‘N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver) was itching to play bass again, and he brought his visceral playing to the sessions. Keyboardist Benjamin Anderson (Rorschach Test, Missionary Position) showcased his musicality on these songs too. And finally, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready added his leads to this record, adding the final touches.
Last summer, both Duff and Benjamin joined Walking Papers for some initial shows and McCready took time away from his busy Pearl Jam schedule to play some of those first gigs too. Gigs were selling out in Seattle, and Walking Papers became the talk of the town. Seattle is indeed a place for great music to take seed, but the world now will get a chance to bear witness to what is Walking Papers.
