New Paramore Album "After Laughter" Releasing May 12
After a four-year hiatus, Grammy Award-winning band Paramore has announced the release of their new album, according to a recent press release. “AFTER LAUGHTER,” their fifth studio album, will be available everywhere on May 12.
The album can already be pre-ordered and those who do will get an instant free download of the first single off the LP, “Hard Times.” The music video for the retro pop-rock track “Hard Times” premiered on April 19.
Paramore recorded “AFTER LAUGHTER” in their hometown of Nashville for the first time, using Nashville’s notable RCA Studio B, and the LP was produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen and Paramore’s own Taylor York. This album also sees original member and drummer Zac Farro return to the band, after both he and his brother and former Paramore bassist Josh Farro, left in 2010.
The Fueled by Ramen recording band has been nominated for four Grammys and won “Best Rock Song” at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Their last album, the self-titled “PARAMORE,” debuted at the top of the SoundScan/Billboard 200 charts when it came out in April 2013, which was Paramore’s first and only #1 album to date.
“PARAMORE” also boasted numerous smash singles, including two 2x RIAA platinum-certified hits, “Still Into You” which charted in the top 10 and “Ain’t It Fun,” which hit #1. “Ain’t it Fun” has been Paramore’s biggest track, reaching #1 at Hot AC and Rock radio outlets across the country, #2 at Top 40, as well as making it to the top 10 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” — the band’s first top 10 hit on the overall chart and their highest reaching song so far.
Past albums have also been extremely successful, starting with their 2005 gold-certified debut album “ALL WE KNOW IS FALLING” to 2007’s 2x platinum-certified revolution, “RIOT!” (which included the 3x platinum-certified single, “Misery Business,” in addition to platinum-certified tracks “crushcrushcrush” and “That’s What You Get”) to 2008’s worldwide platinum song “Decode” from the Chop Shop/Atlantic’s chart-topping “TWILIGHT – ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK” to 2009’s platinum-certified album “brand new eyes” and its GRAMMY-nominated single, “The Only Exception.”
The band has spent much time on the road, performing at sold-out headline arena tours and festivals, and will begin their new European headline tour in June.
While “Hard Times” is Paramore’s only released single from the new album, they’ve released the track listing for “AFTER LAUGHTER” as follows:
1. Hard Times
2. Rose-Colored Boy
3. Told You So
5. Fake Happy
9. Caught In The Middle
10. Idle Worship
11. No Friend
