Sincerely Paul

Gothic / Alternative Rock

Sincerely Paul was an obscure band that released one record on Blonde Vinyl Records and then disappeared. Grieve was a dark gothic alternative album that won a lot of critical praise, but not too many record sales.

Members of Sincerely Paul went on to form bands like SLIDE, Big Ox Laughing, and Laughing Stock. In 2008, a few members of Sincerely Paul purchased the rights to their Blonde Vinyl album and re-issued it with a bonus disc. SLIDE was then resurrected as a full band that released an album called Auto Tune Massacre. A few left-over Sincerely Paul songs were updated for that album. SLIDE then decided to change their name to Dime Store Zombies.
