After the quick and untimely destruction of Girls (the band, not the show), the former members steadily headed in new directions. Former Girls frontman Christopher Owens moved immediately forward with his solo career, while Darren Weiss moved on to form PAPA.

Months after debuting 'Put Me To Work', which is available below, PAPA have announced details of their forthcoming debut LP Tender Madness, coming this fall on Loma Vista/Republic and Island Records.

The October 8th US release will be preceded by the official single 'Young Rut' on August 26th, with the album set to come out in the UK November 4th. The band will also be touring in Europe in November, with stops in Reykjavic, London, Manchester, and Paris, among others.

PAPA European tour dates:

  • 1-Nov Reykjavik/ Iceland Airwaves Festival
  • 2-Nov Amsterdam/ London Calling Festival
  • 5-Nov Deaf Institute, Manchester
  • 6-Nov Dingwalls, London
  • 7-Nov Les InRocks Festival (Le Grand Mix), Tourcoing
  • 8-Nov Festival Les InRocks (La Cigale), Paris
