In celebration of their debut re-release as regular & deluxe versions on Loud & Proud Records 8/6/13, the Walking Papers played a free show at Easy Street Records in West Seattle Monday night 8/5/13. Fans were treated with a seven song set (see photo below) with a meet and greet signing afterwards. You could also buy the new released CD a day early too.
Awesome to see the turn-out at Easy Street Records, even pouring out to the street in support! It was hot and cramped like sardines in there and the stage, well lets say this, Duff assigned me to make sure he didn't fall off the stage ha! No close calls thank goodness!
The deluxe Loud & Proud Records iTunes version contains these extra bonus tracks: "The Butcher" (feat. Synergia Northwest Orchestra) [Live at the Moore Theater], "I’ll Stick Around" (feat. Mike McCready & the Synergia Northwest Orchestra) [Live at the Moore Theater], "Capital T" (Live at the Kill Room), and "The Whole World’s Watching" (Live at the Kill Room).

The Walking Papers are basically a little (soon to be big) Seattle supergroup consisting of the incredibly talented & mesmerizing frontman Jeff Angell - Guitars, Lead Vocals (The Missionary Position) - Barrett Martin - Drums (Mad Season/Screaming Trees) - Duff McKagan - Bass (GNR, Loaded) and Benjamin Anderson - Keyboards (The Missionary Position/Rorschach Test). Their self-titled debut album, produced by Angell and Martin and also mixed by Jack Endino, was orginally released on Martin's Sunyata Records October 2, 2012 and also featured contributions by Pearl Jam's Mike McCready. Mike has been seen playing live with the Walking Papers numerous times in the Seattle area. Check out the pics from KISW's Pain in the Grass 2012!
