The Paper Chase (sometimes spelled "the pAper chAse") is an alternative rock band formed in 1998 by well known producer/engineer John Congleton in Dallas, Texas, signed to Kill Rock Stars and Southern Records. Since its inception, The Paper Chase has produced a combination of discordant melody and jagged noise pop.


Congleton has produced all the band's material to date. He also wrote all of the material, with a few exceptions: Bobby Weaver co-wrote "A Face That Could Launch a Thousand Ships" and "Off with Their Heads" from the album "Young Bodies Heal Quickly, You Know". Mike Sanger co-wrote "Throw Your Body on the Apparatus", and Elliot Figg co-wrote "When You Least Expect It," both from the aforementioned album.

It has been reported that Congleton is working on the recording of a two album project for The Paper Chase centered around natural disasters.Fact|date=August 2008 The first is planned to come out by the end of 2008 while the second (which may be named as a 'Part II') is expected during 2009. The working title for it is "Someday This Could All Be Yours."
