Paper Lions (formerly the Chucky Danger Band) is an indie rock band, formed in Belfast, Prince Edward Island in 2004 by singer and guitarist John MacPhee, drummer David Cyrus MacDonald, guitarist Colin Buchanan and bass guitarist Rob MacPhee. Since changing their name to Paper Lions, the band has completed several tours including a 7-show tour with the American band, Cake, and have released their new album Trophies, which has garnered a lot of attention from media and the music industry. Since signing to a label in September 2010 for the official release of their album Trophies, the band has seen none of the proceeds from record sales. In February 2012, the band announced on their website that they have now independently released their album and are giving it away for free via digital download.
