  • The Paper Kites Announces New Album “At the Roadhouse”, Shares New Song “Hurts So Good”

  • Australian indie folk-rock band The Paper Kites, consisting of Sam Bentley (vocals/guitar/harmonica/mandolin), Christina Lacy (keyboard), David Powys (guitar), Samuel Rasmussen (bass) and Josh Bentley (drums), has announced their sixth studio album “At the Roadhouse” will be released on September 1, 2023.

    The 16-track album was recorded and mixed by engineer Matt Redlich. It is their first album in two years since the 2021 album “Roses”.
    The album was recorded in the small Victorian town of Campbells Creek, 140km north-east of Melbourne in 2022.
    The band said of the album, “We can finally announce that our new album will be titled 'At The Roadhouse' and will be released on September 1st. This album came from a month-long residency we played last year in a small Victorian town called Campbells Creek. The shows were free and unannounced, we performed as an 8-piece house with the addition of Matt Dixon, Hannah Cameron & Chris Panousakis. Each night we would play two sets totalling 16 songs - all of which have been recorded and included on this record.”
    From the album, the band released a new song “Hurts So Good” along with a live performance video on May 19, 2023.
    The song is the third single off of the album, following “The Sweet Sound Of You” and “Till The Flame Burns Blue”.
    It was written by The Paper Kites. The live performance video was filmed by cinematographer Keiren Watson-Bonnice.
  • The band frontman Sam Bentley explained, “It used to be a gold mining supply store back in the days of the Victorian gold rush, then I believe it was a hotel - I was told there was a large fire there in 1876 that almost destroyed the whole building - but it survived and is still standing today. It's this beautiful dramatic old structure by the side of the road. I think we all felt there was something about it and what it could be.”
    The band committed to a month-long stay in Campbells Creek. On the same property, owner Alex Bennett had a vintage all-analogue studio set up in a barn behind the venue.
    “'The Roadhouse' was really something from a collective dream that we had to try and manifest into a real place. It was a venue that we'd talked about over the years, a place for people to come and hear music. We wanted it to be a combination of all the greatest dive bars you'd ever been to, late-night watering holes, smoky taverns, biker bars – but it didn't exist, so we had to build it, and then we had to try and fill it.”

  • The band decided it was here they would work on their next album during the weeks - and every Friday and Saturday night, they would open the doors of “The Roadhouse” and perform.
    He recalled, “I remember word started getting around town that something was happening there, but no one really knew what it was. When we opened the doors for the first time, we knew that there was every chance we could have been playing to five people - and we didn't care. By the end of the month, it was so full we had to keep turning people away.”
