Paramore performed "Still Into You" at last night's Teen Choice Awards, where they also took home the award for Choice Rock Group. Watch a video of their performance in the replies. The band will also be playing the song tonight on Conan.
Since day one, we have always made sure to put our fans first. Yeah, it probably sounds super cliche but honestly, we couldn't do this without you and we know that. You are just as much a part of Paramore as we are. With past tours, we realized that not all of you are getting the access to the tickets we wanted you to have. We knew we had to address this issue for future tours. So, in doing that, we want to put this ticketing policy in place which will help explain how you can get your tickets to our shows. First and foremost, it is of utmost importance to us that every ticket we sell is affordable to our fans....
I watched Paramore play in New York City a few weeks ago, and just decided to write a blog kind of about the show I saw, but mainly about how this band has transformed into something much larger than the group we first heard about on this website years and years ago. Hit the replies to read the feature story.
That’s a pretty scary plateau for a band to reach. At that point, you’re as much of a rock band as you are superheroes. Paramore is at an unparalleled level in its career where they’ve turned into role models, celebrities, you name it. They aren’t a punk band playing a show for kids who go to shows every week...but rock stars playing for all types of people. I saw a group of...
When we started writing I actually blocked out a lot of how I felt about struggles as a band and losing two members and friends. It started to be a problem when I had this intense bout with writer's block. All my lyrics were garbage. There were crumpled pieces of lined paper all over my room. It was frustrating. I let myself go a little bit in the interludes and in a few lines of a couple different songs and just told myself, "It's OK to [be] honest. … Just don't be mean about it."
First off, you can watch Paramore performing an acoustic set at Grimey's in Nashville on Saturday for Record Store Day. The band performs the three interludes from the new album, "Misery Business", "Daydreaming" and "Still Into You." Secondly, we have a video of the band covering The Cure's "In Between Days" acoustically for Sirius XM. Lastly, we have a quick interview with Entertainment Tonight where the band discusses their new album. You can find all of these videos in the replies.
Paramore will be releasing a Record Store Day 7" titled The Holiday Sessions.
Record Store Day is just over 1 week away and Paramore will be celebrating with an acoustic performance at Grimey’s in Nashville. Grimey’s will also be selling a Record Store Day exclusive die-cut 7” vinyl in the shape of a hibiscus flower with the 3 interludes from the new album. The Holiday Sessions will be limited to 700 total copies. 300 of those will be available Grimey’s with the rest available in The Paramore Webstore for those who can’t make it to Nashville. The acoustic performance will begin at 1pm on Saturday, April 20th followed by a signing.
PureVolume recently interviewed Hayley Williams of Paramore and they talked about the band's new self-titled album (in stores tomorrow), the Farro Brothers, and the solo career that never was.
And to be honest with you, there’s no way that ‘Hayley Williams’ would be around as long as Paramore's been around—it just would never work. I think people want what’s real and what’s genuine, and what’s genuine for me is being the singer of this band. Selling my name on a billboard or on the cover of a CD? That just wouldn’t be me. And I just don’t think that ‘Hayley Williams’ would have survived on her own.
