Paramore say they’re ready to “rise from the ashes” after seemingly imploding two years ago with the departure of band members Josh and Zac Farro. The band today (December 6) announced that their fourth album is on the way. It’ll be self-titled and is slated for an April 9 release, according to a statement on their website. “The whole making of this album was a rediscovering of ourselves as a band and as friends,” the three members said. “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 “Now,” and while Hayley Williams and Co. didn’t reveal many details about the song, the statement explained it “feels like the perfect way to start this new journey we are embarking on not only as a band but as a movement.” Time to start making those #occupyparamore shirts.
