WLOTS to release Paperking on Deep Elm Records

Deep Elm Records is pleased to announce the forthcoming September 30th release of Paperking, the glorious, guitar-drenched album by Swedish-based post-hardcore/screamo/skramz outfit WLOTS. Pre-Orders for the album are available HERE. A single edit of Rooftop Nerves, is Available Now on Spotify and all other platforms worldwide.


An isolated pandemic recording session in a small wooded cabin has unleashed what could be aptly described as “a best-of the past twenty years of post-hardcore” says Ox Fanzine. Against a backdrop of snarling pain, awareness, and gut-wrenching emotion, Paperking offers a unique take on this genre’s roots with a sound that harkens back to the early 2000s, while retaining a firm foothold in the band’s dark and dreamy modern world. Delivering on the promise shown on their debut, Sempre Piu, with a fresh collection of 13 killer tracks crafted with sincerity, unflinching fury, and stellar production, this incredible follow-up is a must-listen for anyone who welcomes genuine, legitimate, true emotion.

“WLOTS knocks my socks off with a potpourri that could be a best-of the past twenty years of post-hardcore. Coupled with a convincing depth in lyrics and performance, each chapter of the story displays an impressive framework.” – Ox Fanzine

“WLOTS’ sound is scratching so much at the millennium turn-nostalgia synapses, it’s just unbelievable! Twirling guitars play in ecstasy, stormy drum rolls, everything is lovingly constructed… then comes the evil playmate and rips down all the walls with a roar…” – Crossed Letters
