Premiere: Walking Papers launch epic 12-minute video for Divine Intervention
Divine Intervention comes from Walking Papers’ upcoming third album The Light Below
Walking Papers, the Seattle band formed by Missionary Position members Jefferson Angell and Benjamin Anderson, have released an epic, 12-minute video for Divine Intervention. It’s taken from the band’s upcoming third album The Light Below, the follow-up to 2018’s WP2, which is out next month.
Original bassist Duff McKagan may have departed the band – he’s got some other commitments, apparently – but Walking Papers’ new material carries on in the same vein as DP2, with crumbly blues scrapping with murky, Puget Sound grunge to create a whole that’s as menacing as it is mysterious.
Now comes Divine Intervention, a snaking, twisted blues which gradually rises to a thrilling crescendo over the course of a dozen minutes, backboned by wall-of-noise guitars and a chorus that wouldn’t be out of place on a good U2 album.
