About The Paper Tigers:
The Paper Tigers are Beijing's "hottest new indie rock band," and they are preparing to take China by storm. With an explosive and "danceable" sound reminiscent of The Clash and The Cure meets Block Party and The Arctic Monkeys, the band's original new music is the creation of experienced and successful musicians from four continents forged together in Beijing's booming underground scene. Hailing from China, the US, Europe, and Australia, the band's four members boast award-winning musical experience in their home countries and abroad that includes international touring experience, a swag of big name supports, high rotation radio play, film clips broadcast on national networks and record sales topping 10,000 units. Bringing that experience together in Beijing to create something new, their first packed out gig in January this year prompted a flurry of interview requests and gig offers. Having spent the past few months writing and refining their songs and live show, the band is making a highly anticipated return to the stage in the lead up to the release of their debut EP, which they plan to back up with a national tour across China.
