After an EP on Black Pint, a 7" on Square Up, and a split with O Pioneers!!! on Kiss of Death, Junior Battles released their first full-length record with Paper + Plastick, toured, and towed their first van to the wreckers. They grew up, becoming deep-voiced lumberjacks with Molson Canadian for blood. They learned what it meant to be men with calloused hands and cigarette burns on their arms, chopping wood to heat their cast iron stoves that they might heat their homes and lightly char the bison meat of which their families would feast. They disappeared into the tundra and emerged as battle-scared warriors of the night. Fashioning from discarded timber the tools of their trade, they still play pop-punk. Go figure.
