New Green Paper Album Is Put On Hold

Due to personal reasons that involve academic responsibilities on a certain Eastern continent, Water, the heavily anticipated follow up to Green Paper’s debut full-length, Fire, will be delayed until 2012.  However, the spacious Pop-Rockers have released a promotional video for the forthcoming record with selections from a handful of tracks…a taste of what’s to come.

Fire was all about sloppy, messy textures,” explained guitarist Jeff Lane while describing the differences between the band’s past and future works, “things you might hear if you were trying to think about what fire could sound like…Water is going to sound immaculate, deep, and enveloping.”

“There’s going to be a bajillion guitar tracks doing a bajillion different things,” Lane continued.  “We try to make records that you won’t hear the same way twice…I want to take a Beatles song, throw it in Nigel Godrich’s studio, and have Beck record the drums on it.  None of these things could possibly happen, but that’s what I want it to sound like.”

Despite the setback, the outfit won’t be fading away in the Summer twilight.  According to Lane, Green Paper has a lot in store for fans this season.

“We plan on doing a series of videos over the summer that would kind of put you in our shoes,” explained Lane, “like fly on the wall type stuff,  and of course lots of music, new and old, but in a much different context and presentation than it will be, or was, recorded.”

You may be wondering when these videos will surface, but even the band isn’t sure.

“I’m really into having the nicest things especially when it comes to music,” said Lane.  “We’ve already got a pretty nice, reliable way of shooting videos, but I’m a sound-man and I’m thinking of investing in a nice piece of field recording gear.  Then we’ll start trying some things.”

Green Paper also plans to schedule a “babillion” shows in the following months, including the final performance at its long-time practice space, The Pie Hole, on May 20th.  Click on the link for more information on the event.
