They recently released WP2, their second album with Loud & Proud Records, on January 19, 2018. Loudwire named WP2 one of the best rock albums of 2018 so far saying, “If you like your rock straight up with solid songwriting, don't overlook the latest from Walking Papers. 'WP2' draws from characters with a darker side, on songs like ‘Death on the Lips,’ ‘Red and White’ and ‘Don't Owe Me Nothing.’ It's a solid sophomore set from this band that includes Jefferson Angell, Benjamin Anderson, Barrett Martin and Duff McKagan.” Rock ‘N’ Load Magazine said of WP2 in their 10/10-star review, “It may only be January, but WP2 could be one of the albums of the year.” Pure Grain Audio in their 8.5/10 Star review, “In 2013, a criminally overlooked debut album by Walking Papers saw its release…Walking Papers was indeed one of the best rock albums of that year…It felt like four multi-talented musicians coming together to craft some beautiful music, and the world was a better place because of that albums' existence. So, listen up good people, because lightning has indeed struck twice...” All Music said it’s, “Packed with enough dirty guitar riffs to fill a smoky roadside bar…Frontman Jeff Angell's voice carries the project, his gritty delivery reminiscent of Bono filtered through the murk of Mark Lanegan…those subtle hints of early U2 pop up multiple times.” WP2 is the follow up to their 2013 critically acclaimed debut album that Rolling Stone called “…dark, alternately sensual and sinister.” USA Today said, “Sometimes an album sounds nothing like you expect yet still blows you away… It's powerful yet nuanced, a kind of rock confident enough in itself that it rarely needs force to make its point.”Consequence Of Sound said, “It’s a record that largely eschews typical hard rock fare, opting instead for a blues rock that slinks and wafts as much as it crunches and blusters. This unlikely dynamic makes Walking Papers a pink slip you’ll actually be happy to get.”
