Paramore have finally announced details of their brand new album ‘After Laughter’. The band’s fifth album - and first with their newest line-up of Hayley Williams, Taylor York and Zac Farro - is due for release on 12th May via Fueled By Ramen.
Co-produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen and the band’s guitarist York and recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, the album follows on from their previous self-titled album, which landed all the way back in 2013.
That’s not all: they’ve offered up a first taste of what to expect in the form of the record’s first single ‘Hard Times’, for which they’ve also revealed a technicolour video. With a huge chorus and sugary vocals, it sounds as though ‘After Laughter’ could be following in the bombastic footsteps of the likes of ‘Still Into You’ and ‘Ain’t It Fun’ from the self-titled record.
where do I get it???
Ok, sorry, was panicking a little bit but now I finally got the album! Will listen to it soon then I will share my thoughts :)
I really love the new direction they went with that album. Most of the songs are catchy and dancey and 80s and I really love it. This album is perfect for summer and listening to it while driving on a sunny day.
My favourite songs are Hard Times, Rose-colored Boy, Grudges, Idle Worship and Caught In The Middle. But all the others are cool, too – except No Friend which is useless in my opinion. I hope there are some cool B-sides!
