PaperPlane Album Launch

Fancy supporting some amazing local talent? PaperPlane are based in the Halifax and Todmorden area and I can safely say they are incredible live, with their loyal following attending almost every gig, welcoming new fans along the way. The trio, made up of Jack Bennett (Vocals and guitar), Kristian Arak (Bass) and Kristan Read (Drums) are finally bringing out their debut album, and will be holding an album launch at The Victoria Theatre in Halifax on the 30th July. Tickets are only £6 and there’s even an after party! The band’s awesome album artwork is created by local artist Jono Bishop. You can find out more about PaperPlane at their MySpace site, http://www.myspace.com/paperplaneuk. See you down there!
