Paramore kicked off a series of concerts celebrating Fueled By Ramen's 15th Anniversary by playing a 70-minute set -- and debuting a new song -- at New York's Terminal 5 on Wednesday night (Sept. 7). During their encore, the rock outfit dove into a track called "Renegade," with singer Hayley Williams teling the crowd that the song had "never been played before."
"This song, we will be putting online for you to have as soon as possible," says Williams before the group launched into the new track. Aside from "Renegade," Paramore's set consisted of the collection of hits they've accrued since releasing their first album on Fueled By Ramen in 2005.
After an intense performance of "Careful," the group stripped down for an acoustic take on "In The Mourning" and "My Heart," and then revved up again to tear through "Crushcrushcrush," "Here We Go Again" and their debut single, "Pressure." The band ended their regular set with an intimate performance of "The Only Exception," and capped off the night with "Brick By Boring Brick," and a raucous rendition of their breakout single, "Misery Business."
Fueled By Ramen artists like This Providence, The Swellers, The Stereo, and fun. also performed at the sold-out show, with the latter's set in particular eliciting sing-a-longs and shouts from the audience. Although fun.'s set was only 30 minutes, the New York-based pop-rock band cranked out favorites like "Barlights" and "Walking The Dog," and played a new song off their upcoming debut release for Fueled By Ramen.
Paramore's performance at the Fueled By Ramen celebration is expected to be the band's final show of 2011. Although "Renegade" follows the "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" soundtrack single "Monster" as the first music from the newly reconstituted trio, the follow-up to 2009's "Brand New Eyes" has yet to receive a release date.
