Album Premiere: Violet Crime “Paper Queen EP”

We are proud to be able to premiere the full album stream of the new EP from Violet Crime “Paper Queen”. The "Paper Queen EP" not only shows off the band’s genre-bending sound and boasts production credits of pop-punk heavyweights Sam Guainana (Like Pacific, Story Untold, Silverstein, Young Culture) and Derek DiScanio (State Champs vocalist), but it's also being released through Play Together Records — a social impact label that invests profits back into the Chicago elementary art and music programs.

In addition to a profits from the EP, via Play Together, a portion of Violet Crime’s merch proceeds are directed to the youth after school music program Intonation Music to support the next generation of Chicago artists.

We recently had the chance to ask Jeff Mills of Violet Crime about the new EP; "This album was a long time in the making. For the past year and a half or so, we've been trying to expand and explore our potential when it comes to writing. Our trip to Toronto to actually record everything was the frosting on the cake - our producer Sam Guaiana truly had a vision for all the songs, and challenged us daily in the studio to fulfill that. We all learned and grew so much from that experience!

Just as this album is a step up for us in writing and recording, our June 29th release show at Bottom Lounge will be a step up for our live performance. We have a backing ensemble of horns and vocalists performing with us which is so exciting, and we're planning out every minute of the performance from start to finish. We can't wait celebrate with all our fans, friends, and families!"
