Title: "Paramore" | Release Date: April 9, 2013
Paramore's 2009 effort "Brand New Eyes" was a success from a sales standpoint, yet saw original members Josh and Zac Farro quit the group. Now a trio, the Hayley Williams-led band regrouped last year to record their fourth studio album with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, Macy Gray, M83). "It was a process that allowed us the freedom to explore new territory artistically and to liberate ourselves as musicians, singers, as people," the group writes on their site. "We feel that the best way to give it a name is just to call it what it is. This album is us." Until the album hits, fans have first single "Now," a no-nonsense return to form -- one that'll likely delight those who got behind jams like "Misery Business."
