Paramore have announced that they will release their fourth album in April next year, almost a year after they began recording it. Entitled ‘Paramore’, it’ll be their first since the departure of guitarist and drummer Josh and Zac Farro in December 2010.
In a blog post, Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams wrote: “With the most pride and passion we could ever possibly express, we would like to announce that this album, our fourth freaking album… will be self-titled, ‘Paramore’. It has been self-titled through nearly the entire process. In fact, what usually takes us weeks on end to sum up and put a label on only took us a five minute conversation this time around. The whole making of this album was a rediscovering of ourselves as a band and as friends. It 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”.
The first single will be a track called ‘Now’, and the album itself will be released in the US on 9 Apr.
