Rockhal and Den Atelier present:
The stratospheric rise of Paramore has been swift and is proof of the adage; what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. After taking the world by storm through their albums “All We Know Is Falling”, “Riot” and “Brand New Eyes”, the band is back on the radar of their fans with a new record, set for release in April! With millions of album sales and three Grammy nominations we are thrilled to announce that Paramore will be performing live at the Rockhal on 13 June 2013.
When Hayley Williams began writing lyrics for the songs that appear on Paramore’s self-titled new album, she found herself feeling more optimistic than ever before about the future of the band she has fronted since she was 15. Lead-off single “Now” - with lyrics like “if there’s a future, we want it now” - sets the urgent tone of Paramore, the Nashville, Tennessee-bred band’s fourth album. Given the choice of packing it in or reinventing themselves as a trio, Williams, guitarist Taylor York, and bassist Jeremy Davis chose the latter and made a positive, uplifting album that reflects who they are in the present.
The band members holed up to write over the past year and a half and emerged with a collection of songs that retains Paramore’s youthful spirit, but clearly shows their evolution. It’s the most musically adventurous set they’ve released to date. Which isn’t to say the album won’t thrill longtime fans. Still present is a ferocious, churning energy (a hallmark of Paramore’s sound) but the album should also earn Paramore new listeners, thanks to the trio’s willingness to explore uncharted sonic territory.
Since releasing their gold-certified debut “All We Know Is Falling” in 2005, the 3x-Grammy-nominated band has shot to international stardom thanks to a strong connection with its fans that has translated into a string of platinum and gold singles, including “Misery Business,” “Crushcrushcrush,” and “That’s What You Get” from 2007’s platinum-certified “Riot!”, “Decode” from 2008’s Twilight soundtrack, “The Only Exception” from 2009’s platinum “Brand New Eyes”, and “Monster” from 2011’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack.
More than anything, Williams, Davis, and York are ready to get back on the road and feel that energy coming from the audience. Don’t miss Paramore performing live at the Rockhal on 13 June 2013.
