Biography

“This age is a new age!”

Paparazzi creates a mosaic of traditional and unconventional auditory aesthetics within the realm of punk influenced, indie-rock. They aim to fill every basement, club and bar in the world with their catchy, cacophonous tunes. Their tenacious and indefatigable DIY ethic has garnered them a workhorse reputation in the northeast, brewing pandemonium wherever they leave a trace. Recently, they have been (or will be) playing with Pitchforkmedia referenced acts such as Japanther, Parts & Labor, Enon, etc. They intend on recording a debut album this fall, with a release date scheduled for winter/early spring.

Lyrics

Lawless

Written By: Billy Nichols

This age is a new age
With new laws to be made
Throw the king in his cage
Over his kingdom he will reign
This age is a new age
With new laws to be made
Throw the king in his grave
Over his kingdom he will reign

We are the law of this town
there's no one here to bring us down
We are the law of this town
there's no one here to bring us down
We are the law of this town
we killed the king we wear his crown

This boy is a new boy
made of steel and aluminum alloy
A new body to employ
Robotic apple of our eye
This man is a new man
metalic joints and plastic hands
Strongest man to ever stand
He is part of our master plan

We are the law of this town
there's no one here to bring us down
We are the law of this town
there's no one here to bring us down
We are the law of this town
We killed the king we wear his crown

This age is a new age
With new laws to be made
Throw the king in his cage
Over his kingdom he will reign
This age is a new age
With new laws to be made
Throw the king in his grave
Over his kingdom he will reign

This boy is a new boy
made of steel and aluminum alloy
A new body to employ
Robotic apple of our eye
This man is a new man
metalic joints and plastic hands
Strongest man to ever stand
He is part of our master plan

Shoot Me Up

Written By: Billy Nichols

Wake up in the mornin’ and I'm feelin’ sick
I've gotta’ find another kick
What kind of junk makes me like this
your kiss, your kiss, YOUR KISS.

Ya’ know your love made an addict of me
Shoot me up baby, shoot me up baby baby
Ya’ know your love made an addict of me
Shoot me up baby, shoot me up baby baby

Ya’ see they're other fish in the sea
and I have a selection if I please
Only you drops me to my knees
Shoot me up girl ya’ know what i need
Now you're addicted to insanity
Your body moves with such velocity
I need you girl I guess that's what I need
I need you like a junky needs heroin

Ya’ know your love made an addict of me
Shoot me up baby, shoot me up baby baby
Ya’ know your love made an addict of me
Shoot me up baby, shoot me up baby baby
Ya’ know your love made a junky of me
Shoot me up baby, shoot me up baby baby
Ya’ know your love made a slave of me
Shoot me up baby, shoot me up baby baby

Ya’ know your love made an addict of me
Shoot me up baby, shoot me up baby baby
Ya’ know your love made an addict of me
Shoot me up baby, shoot me up baby baby
Ya’ know your love made a junky of me
Shoot me up baby, shoot me up baby baby
Ya’ know your love made a slave of me
Shoot me up baby, shoot me up baby baby

Zombie Beach Party

Written By: Billy Nichols

It was late at night I was drivin' my Chevy when I heard a noise commin' over the levy.
My eyes spotted somethin' I could believe.
It was a zombie beach party as far as I could see.
Undead gettin' down and holdin' hands
Limbs galore buried in that sand
People screamed the final guest made a stand.
It was giant green monster flew in from Japan.

Zombie beach party
Heads are gonna’ roll
Zombie beach party
They ain't got no soul
Zombie beach party
Heads are gonna’ spin
Zombie beach party
They wont let you in
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party

UFO men came from outerspace
Flyin saucer lights lit up the place
Rotten flesh begin to twist and shake
And the sun on that beach made the rotten flesh bake
Undead gettin' down and holdin' hands
Limbs galore burried in that sand
People screamed the final guest made a stand.
It was giant green monster flew in from Japan.

Zombie beach party
Heads are gonna’ roll
Zombie beach party
They ain't got no soul
Zombie beach party
Heads are gonna’ spin
Zombie beach party
They wont let you in
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party

Zombie beach party
Heads are gonna’ roll
Zombie beach party
They ain't got no soul
Zombie beach party
Heads are gonna’ spin
Zombie beach party
They wont let you in
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
Zombie Beach Party
