That album name may be more prevalent here than the album’s own. From the opening bars of title track ‘No Grace’, a song that at times is written in Memes, the bass drum is pronounced and faster, the guitar is pounded with ‘no fucks given’ strokes, the vocals are delivered with the snarl of a curled lip. Hoppus’s pop-punk influence is more than apparent. It’s a sound so familiar, yet PAWS twist it to make it their own. The title track by the way, is wonderful. From the emphatic claims of the press release to the complete change in style, No Grace contains many a fearless move from PAWS. But could we expect anything less from the guys who took on the wrath of Morrissey in their infancy and came out on top? Nope. Welcome back into my life PAWS, I’ve missed you. No Grace is out now via FatCat Records.

The result is No Grace, an album that retains much of the vitality and vigour of the band’s previous releases, but where those albums were coloured by a fresh-faced excitement and in the invincibility of youth, No Grace is the sound of band who’ve discovered that life is fleeting, so they’re taking it for what it’s go. While pop-punk is still very much at the heart of what PAWS are doing, No Grace feels far less self-deprecating than much of their peers’ material, and far less interested in stories of romance or heartbreak.
Weary from years of constant touring, Glaswegian punk trio PAWS took a literal pause in their schedule, giving themselves a much needed break to reflect and write their next album. It's not an uncommon story for hardworking indie bands who, after a handful of . releases and way too many hours in the van, find themselves at a career crossroads. Their mettle effectively tested, some bands crack and call it a day while others gear up for one more all-or-nothing campaign to see what it nets them
Paws - No Grace Songtext. Punched out and smashed in the teeth, These boys are done their bleeding. Pouring their sweat, souls, and hope, Into a dying black hole Here we are it's all or nothing, Even if this room is empty. No grace in a future without a fever. No grace for the dead to hold dear. We, we are so young and barely born. How can you say that your so bored? You don't even know who you are yet. Cut the crap and give until you got no more. You'll be digging, you'll be blundering your face, For an excuse when we've been spilling blood for your name All friends can become new faces, As we cross off that list of places. Another town in which we'll be alone, We're not the only ones to not give up and go home.
