Paramore’s fifth album was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A – also their first time recording in their beloved hometown. Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Jimmy Eat World, Beck) and Paramore’s own Taylor York, After Laughter signalled the return of founding member Zac Farro to the band. It debuted at #3 on the ARIA Charts, featuring the hugely successful singles ‘Hard Times’ – which has had over 50 million views on its colourfully playful video which Billboard declared “addictive” – and ‘Told You So’ which saw over 7 million views in its first two weeks alone.
Long regarded as an exhilarating live act with a non-stop show led by the fearless Hayley Williams, with Taylor York on guitar and Zac Farro back on drums, Paramore are a bona fide juggernaut, selling over 6 million albums and leaving a trail of sold out headline arena tours in their wake. They have sold out iconic venues around the world including Madison Square Garden and Wembley Arena, and performed show-stealing headline festival sets at the likes of Reading and Leeds Festivals, Riot Fest and their own four-day festival cruise PARAHOY!. With Tour Four hitting some of Australia’s most well-loved arenas, these will be Paramore’s first headline shows Down Under since their last tour in February 2014.
Paramore have had a truly remarkable run since forming in Nashville in 2004, from their gold-certified debut All We Know Is Falling (2005), to 2007’s 2x platinum breakthrough Riot! and platinum-certified albums Brand New Eyes (2009) and Paramore (2013). The Grammy-award winning band have consistently drawn both critical acclaim as well as a wide-ranging list of international honours and accolades, multiple Grammy nominations and a win for Best Rock Song (for ‘Ain’t It Fun’), two People’s Choice Awards, three NME Awards, three MTV Video Music Award nominations and much, much more.
