Paper Arms have an honest, raw and mature take on punk rock roots. It is the culmination of over a decade in punk and hardcore bands, yet it’s never felt this good before. The band hit the studio in early January 2010, with legendary musician/producer Walter Schreifels, to record their debut full length album, 'Days Above Ground'. It's release marks a new chapter in the bands story, and one which is sure to be interesting.
