Paper Tigers is an indie-alt rock band from Boston, MA. Described as ʻpowerful and anthemicʼ, their music is a forceful blend of soaring vocals, dynamic guitars, and energetic drums.
After forming in 2019, the quartet quickly earned a reputation as one of the city’s best new bands, both on stage and on record, fueled by an anthemic tenacity and confident swagger seldom seen from new acts. They elevated their profile with the 2021 EP "A Schism Cataclysm", which saw fiery lead single “Ursa Minor” earn radio play and blog attention around the globe, and playing every show like it could be their last.
In 2022, Paper Tigers stock rose once again with the May release of "I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me This Sooner", a blistering and comprehensive EP fueled by the explosive single “A Portrait of a Scene.” That same month, their performance at Boston Calling was one of the most talked about sets all weekend, bringing unrivaled energy to the festival and drawing a massive and engaged crowd to the Tivoli Audio Orange Stage--a pit even broke out. Declared one of "the city’s must-watch” bands by Boston.com. In Oct 2022, Paper Tigers was announced as an Artist of the Year nominee for the New England Music Awards.
