walking home, this awkward road. tangled close, can't let you go. could it be an accident. it could be like you said. it's on repeat, it's everywhere. through the park and up the stairs. like a stone on my mind. it's everywhere it's everywhere. it's on repeat, it's everywhere. through the park and up the stairs. through the night like a mare. it's everywhere it's everywhere. we echo through quiet streets. no battery - just you and me. we could be an accident. or you could lie to yourself. it's on repeat, it's everywhere. through the park and up the stairs. like a stone on my mind. it's everywhere it's everywhere. it's on repeat, it's everywhere. through the park and up the stairs. through the night like a mare. it's everywhere it's everywhere. rooftop nerves like smoke in my lungs. can you repair a broken promise? bottles braking down below us. hearts are racing, you're so toxic. it's on repeat what you said. it doesn't make any sense. through the day like a thread. it's on repeat but you aren't there. through the day like a thread. it's everywhere it's everywhere

about

Deep Elm Records will release "Paperking", the glorious, guitar-drenched album by Swedish-based post-hardcore / screamo / skramz outfit WLOTS, on 30 September. Pre-Orders for the album are now live. A single edit of "Rooftop Nerves" is Available Now on Spotify and all other services worldwide.

An isolated pandemic recording session in a small wooded cabin has unleashed what could be aptly described as "a best-of the past twenty years of post-hardcore." Against a backdrop of snarling pain, awareness and gut-wrenching emotion, "Paperking" offers a unique take on this genre's roots with a sound that harkens back to the early 2000’s while retaining a firm foothold in the band's dark and dreamy modern world. Delivering on the promise shown on their debut "Sempre Piu" with a fresh collection of 13 killer tracks crafted with sincerity, unflinching fury and stellar production, this incredible follow-up is a must-listen for anyone who welcomes genuine, legitimate, true emotion.

"The album is a collection of sad musings about life lived in contempt of others, authoritative figures in particular, and trying to let go of that anger. 'Paperking' is written from the perspective of the oppressor...someone whose claim to power is without warrant and unable to withstand challenge. We want the listener to despise this person as much as we do but at the same time recognize their humanity," says bassist Alexander Reinthal.

"Paperking" was recorded by WLOTS in Granna, mixed by Taylor Barrow and mastered by Ulf Blomberg at HoboRec in Lund. Taylor also provided additional keys and programming. Album artwork by Tom Malek.
