Miami, Florida based The Divorce Papers are breaking it down. Barriers, that is. Swimming firmly in the rock/punk/alternative based full of big, loud, distorted guitar solos, heavy strummed bass and a punk attitude as big as the state of Florida, The Divorce Papers have wed their musical futures to an infusion of hip-hop genes into the mix. The resulting first EP, The Last F***ing Song You’ll Ever Hear is telling.

The 2-song EP opens with The Last Song, an interesting hybrid of pop, alternative rock and even a little bit of hip-hop. The sound is unique and fresh, although the mix on the EP was very poor (I had to turn it up to way above normally healthy levels just to hear it). There’s nothing pithy here; The Divorce Papers project a great punk attitude and a willingness to take chances. A little classic guitar rock style is evident as well as The Divorce Papers allow themselves to bask in some old school guitar solos along the way. Daze is more of a hip-hop influenced song but over a distinctly Rock N Roll base.

Don’t expect sonic excellence here, that’s not what The Divorce Papers are about. This is about Rock N Roll, pure and simple. The Divorce Papers are a band that would sound equally good in a cinder block garage or a dynamic sound space. It’s hard to tell a lot about a band from just two tracks, but this is a good start. The pop/rock world is continually reinventing itself by melding styles and breaking down walls between genres. The Divorce Papers are no different, but they might just be unique enough to catch on.

Bio

The story begins in fall 2006 when Daze (vocals/guitar) meets Franchise (guitar/vocals) in math class, and a common love for punk rock leads the two to start their very own band. The enlistment of drummer Johnny Rocket and a revolving door of bassists lands the band a couple shows around the Miami area. After playing for a few months the band lands current bassist Patty and begins to evolve musically, recording a 4 song EP with Lon of Bazooka records and Tom of Iron Lion studios in Miami.

After a name change to the current 'Divorce Papers' the band is as energized as ever, continuing to progress as musicians and stretch the limits of the known conventions of music. Combining their roots and finesse for punk rock with the love for hip-hop and smartass swag, the band synthesizes an undeniably gripping sound, as seen on thier latest recording, "The Last Song". Recorded with Iron Lion, the song gives listeners a taste of the madness to ensue 2009.

Their follow up EP to the new single is expected to be released in Summer of 2009 with a slew of shows in the Florida to follow shortly with its release. In the process of writing the band continues to synthesize a classic punk rock sound with blazing guitar solos and thier secret weapon, their knowledge and hold on hip-hop. Such a unique combination has the band headed for only on path - the top of the world, and its only getting closer.

In association with Poorboys Productions Miami, and Daze, Incorporated; we proudly present to you the beginning of something terrible, The Divorce Papers.
