We must admit, it has been a long while since we last heard from this Grammy-nominated band. Thankfully, their recording group “Fueled By Ramen” just announced the best news yet. Yes! Paramore is slated to release their hugely anticipated, self-titled new album in April 2013.
The album, “Paramore” is what would be the band’s first all-new release in more than three years. With the help of Grammy-nominated producer Justin Meldal-Johnson (Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Tegan and Sara), the release will feature materials that were inspired by “the freedom to explore new territory artistically”.
Hayley Williams (lead singer) also commented that, “The whole making of this album was a rediscovering of ourselves as a band and as friends. Sincerely, we feel that the best way to give it a name is just to call it what it is. The album is us.”
To kick off the release, “Paramore” will be championed by its first single entitled, “Now”. Following which, the band will herald the release of the album with a much-anticipated Southeast Asian/Australian tour. The trek include dates in Thailand, Malaysia, and the Philippines, as well as a prominent role on Australia’s annual Soundwave festival tour.
Woohoo. Exciting times ahead!
