The indie rock-band Paper Airplanes were formed in Wichita, KS, by singer/guitarist Marcus Stoesz, drummer Nathan Wilder, and bassist Anthony Piazza. In concert, these were augmented by Les Easterby, Jeff Vidricksen, and Spliff Phillips. Their debut record, Boyhood, premiered by the small Mayhaps label in 2006. The 54°40′ or Combat! label gave it a nationwide discharge on March 20, 2007.
