New Video: Paper Lions – Philadelphia

Prince Edward Island quartet Paper Lions release their new album, My Friends, in August and ahead of time have released its first single, ‘Philadelphia’ as a free download.

So in love with them are we that we interviewed the band recently in a lovely little Introducing peice, during which guitarist Colin Buchanan assured us that the rest of the album was in a similar vein: “The album is definitely more in the vein of “Philly,” with full out rock production and such.
