Paramore’s 2022 live schedule also includes their previously-announced appearances at When We Were Young Festival in Las Vegas, Austin City Limits in Texas, and Corona Capital in Mexico City.

The band’s fifth and most recent studio album, ‘After Laughter’, came out in 2017. Frontwoman Williams has since released two solo LPs: ‘Petals For Armor’ (2020) and ‘Flowers For Vases / Descansos’ (2021).

Back in January, Paramore – currently comprising Williams, guitarist Taylor York and drummer Zac Farro – revealed that there were back in the studio working on a new full-length record.


They confirmed that they’d completed their earliest songwriting sessions in Nashville and had since relocated to a studio in California to record.

At the time, Williams explained that she and York had been reminiscing over some of their earliest influences before they began writing the album. But the trio said it didn’t necessarily mean they would be releasing a “comeback ’emo’ record”.

“I’m always waiting for the moment for us to know we’re onto something new and we’re not just rehashing the same shit,” Williams added.
