You Don’t Know Jersey has named Everyday Forever one of its top NJ albums of 2018 saying “From the brilliant danceable power pop of “Say I Can” to the slow burn of “My Gemini Heart” to the punk infused “Go On Go On” the album is the band at the top of their game.”

Release Show Review from YDKJ


“…If indeed The Paper Jets have played their last show then guitarist/vocalist Brian Erickson, lead guitarist Mike Virok, bassist Scott Austin Miller and drummer Frank Lettieri Jr. can take comfort knowing that they not only played one of their best shows ever but did so on the same day they released one of the best albums of 2018.”

10 Years Culminates With Reunions, Epic Release Show

On Friday December 7, The Paper Jets ended a ten year run with a headlining release show at Asbury Lanes. Hundreds gathered for what may well be the band’s final performance and they did everything but disappoint.


In a kinder universe, this show would have been the start something bigger; the next phase for a band who has seemed both poised, and ready, for a while yet. Instead, it served as a cap-off to a sometimes-frustrating, frequently-interesting, never-boring decade that included four records, four tours, five festivals, and nine members.

As the show progressed, The Paper Jets ran through the best of their entire catalogue, featuring several cuts from their latest album Everyday Forever alongside longtime staples “Set of Rules,” Lena Lena,” and “Atlantic City.”

The performance took a turn toward the sentimental when, for the first time since January 2011, Bill Lambusta joined his former bandmates on stage for the final suite of songs. Then, before the band’s final number, manager Bill Greenwood, former keyboardist Kristen Leu, and longtime collaborator Jeff Fiedler also got on stage!

If this is the band’s final show, they couldn’t have pulled it off any better.
