Multi-platinum selling artist Paramore has unveiled details of their upcoming North American tour. The dates celebrate the release of their hugely anticipated new album, âPARAMORE,â due in stores and online on April 9th. The Grammy-nominated band will hit the road beginning April 25th in Houston and then visit major markets across the continent through mid-May (see attached itinerary). They will play Torontoâs Sound Academy on May 13. Joining them as the opening act will be LA-based, alt-rock group Kitten who has already garnered critical acclaim for their âCut It Outâ EP as well as their dynamic live show, and are currently finishing up their full length debut for Elektra Records.
Pre-sale tickets will be available by invitation only to members of Paramoreâs Fan Club and Singles Club, beginning January 28th at 5pm EST, with all remaining tickets then offered to the general public on February 1st. Additional dates to be announced shortly - please see www.paramore.net/tour for complete details.
Meanwhile, the band will gear up for the long awaited arrival of âPARAMOREâ with an upcoming series of shows in Southeast Asia and Australia, including a leading role on the latterâs annual Soundwave festival tour. Always a festival favorite, Paramore will also hit the stage at a number of upcoming European extravaganzas, with Germanyâs Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park among those already announced for June and beyond.
Paramoreâs first all-new release in more than three years, âPARAMOREâ is heralded by the kinetic new single, âNow,â which can currently be heard on the bandâs website. A companion video â directed by award-winning filmmaker/dancer Daniel Cloud Campos â is now in post-production with a premiere date slated for mid-February.
âPARAMOREâ is also available now for pre-order with a variety of options including a limited bundle featuring a deluxe box set (which includes two colored 12â vinyl, a 7â vinyl featuring two exclusive b-sides, an 18âx24â exclusive poster & more), a hoodie, and a photo book highlighting the bandâs time in the studio. All packages include an instant MP3 download of âNow.â Canadian link: http://paramore.rhinorecords.ca
âPARAMOREâ marks the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2009âs gold-certified âbrand new eyes.â The album â Paramoreâs fourth full-length studio recording â was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Justin Medal-Johnson, known for his work with such diverse artists as Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Tegan and Sara, and M83.
Paramore â singer Hayley Williams, bassist Jeremy Davis, and guitarist Taylor York â unveiled the album late last year via a personal blog announcement. âThe whole making of this album was a rediscovering of ourselves as a band and as friends,â they wrote. âIt was a process that allowed us the freedom to explore new territory artistically and to liberate ourselves as musicians, singers, as people! Sincerely, we feel that the best way to give it a name is just to call it what it is. This album is us.â
