The Paper Chase is an alternative rock band from Dallas, Texas (formed in 1998) on Kill Rock Stars and Southern records.

Since their inception, The Paper Chase (sometimes spelled "the pAper chAse") has produced a combination of discordant melody and jagged noise pop.

The band consists of ringleader vocalist and guitarist John Congleton and piano and synthesizer guru Sean Kirkpatrick, with a heavy rhythm section of Bobby Weaver on bass and Jason Garner on the drum kit.

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.
