About Gym Class Heroes:

In 2005, Gym Class Heroes released their Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen debut The Papercut Chronicles, a classic coming-of-age album that spawned the platinum, record setting Top 40 No. 1 single "Cupid's Chokehold/Breakfast in America" and led to the first of the band’s multiple outings on The Warped Tour.

Papercut served up a fresh, new palette for hip-hop: live instruments, slyly humorous lyrics, and eerie melodies that illuminated rapper Travie McCoy’s dark, personal subject matter. Since then, Gym Class Heroes has established themselves as one of the most exciting bands in pop music, topping the radio charts with hit singles, touring the world, making countless national television appearances, and winning multiple music awards, including the MTV VMA for Best New Artist in 2007.

Titling their fifth release The Papercut Chronicles II was a deliberate move by a band determined to keep evolving but still remain mindful of their roots. In that way, Travie McCoy and the band’s other founding member, drummer Matt McGinley, see the new album as an extension, rather than a duplication, of its predecessor. “It fills in the gaps, both lyrically and sonically, between that period and now,” McCoy says. “Our fans definitely push us to be better every day.” Adds McGinley: “It helps us put into perspective why we make music. It's not always to have enormous success. A lot of times it's just for people who come up and tell you that they really dig your music.”
