Info for At the Roadhouse
The Paper Kites have released their new album 'At The Roadhouse' today via Nettwerk Music Group, a sixteen-song collection that serves as a gripping ode to what waits for us on the winding paths of love, loss, acceptance and wanderlust. Recorded among the red dirt and bushfire moons of Campbells Creek - a remote village outside their native Melbourne - the journey to 'At The Roadhouse' began with the five-piece working together to build the music venue of their dreams. Converting an old gold-mining supply shop into "The Roadhouse," The Paper Kites began to craft the album during an unannounced and unadvertised residency; building on the DIY spirit that's helped them continuously win over new fans one at a time - with remarkable results like a Platinum record in the US and over one billion Spotify streams to date. "There were no expectations or pressure around the performances - just us and a small room full of people," explains songwriter Sam Bentley of their residency at The Roadhouse. "The whole point was to try and connect with people and in turn develop a sense of community around the music - I think that’s what happened.”

The Paper Kites
After their recent official gold certification in the US, Melbourne indie folk outfit The Paper Kites have been quietly preparing for the highly anticipated release of their fourth studio album On The Corner Where You Live. Give them your tired, your lonely, your lovesick, your unsure, The Paper Kites have a song for each of them on this latest album. On The Corner Where You Live wafts evocatively with noir-ish saxophones, guitars, ambient traffic, even the languid sound of rain. It’s levitating and bittersweet; heavy-hearted stories that are resoundingly universal. The band co-produced the album with Grammy-winner Peter Katis (Interpol, The National) at his studio in Connecticut – a 120-year old Victorian era home that the band lived and recorded in for 5 weeks.
Both On The Corner Where You Live and the band’s surprise album drop for 2018, On The Train Ride Home, follow up the critically acclaimed 2015 album twelvefour. The Paper Kites (which includes vocalist Sam Bentley, vocalist Christina Lacy, guitarist Dave Powys, drummer Josh Bentley and bassist Sam Rasmussen) have earned a loyal, organic fan base. In the eight years since they formed, what’s followed is an impressive reach of their music with standout single Bloom (from their Woodland EP) certified gold with 700,000 tracks sold across America, which sees them join a small list of Aussie artists (including ACDC, INXS, Midnight Oil, SIA, Kylie Minogue, Flume and Silverchair) who have received gold accreditation in the US.
The band has also been steadily touring across 4 continents, 24 countries with nearly 200 shows in just under 3 years. With over half a billion streams and nearly 4 million monthly listeners on Spotify, they continue to amass new fans wherever they go. They’ve also announced a 21 date North American and UK headline tour, and word is, Australian fans shouldn’t fret – down under dates are on the horizon.
