Paramore Blogs About LA

Posted by: Jason Tate (02/03/12)
Paramore has posted a new blog about their week in Los Angeles.
From the BlogThis week is the busiest week we've had in quite a long time. I'm writing this through half-open eyes*. My body hasn't quite caught up with the work schedule yet... ever since we came home after the FBR15 show it's been all Hunger Games, holiday meals, and Sega Genesis for me. Not a very active type of business to be running. Anyways, I think I much prefer this tiresome route. At least we're getting somewhere now!

We've met a good 6 or 7 guys this week who are all well-qualified for the job of producing our 4th album. It's a scary/exciting/and extremely inspiring process to meet and try to get to know someone who will carry out a vision with us and bring together all the music we create. As you know from the video we posted yesterday, one of the men we met with was Justin Meldal-Johnson. What an amazing guy. So talented too. We really should thank him for actually being the only guy who was really up for being filmed and okay with sort of having his space invaded by a little pink camera. Originally, our plan was to film literally any little thing, every meeting that happened on this trip. We wanted to make some kind of "video list" of all the folks we were meeting with. Unfortunately, we've got to respect the fact that not every guy wants his mug posted up on blog sites/fan sites/forums nor do they really want to disclose information about potential projects. The truth is, we were sort of going with the whole notion that "it's easier to ask forgiveness than to ask permission" ... but again, at this point it's really clear to us that it was a little too ambitious of an assignment and we have to respect people's wishes to not be on exhibit all over the internet. Basically, there are still going to be video clips and pics from the trip and we're still going to keep you guys in the loop... we hope you're still down!


The great news is that so far we've gotten a lot of incredible feedback on the batch of songs we've been showing to producers. It's a new day for our band. If we didn't know that before, this trip has most certainly been the confirmation we needed. Thanks for sticking around to support us and being in this whole thing with us. We've only got two meetings left on this trip. You have all been with us for every thing we've done thus far and you'll be there tomorrow as well. Not through a camera or by any physical means... but in our thoughts and hearts. You're a big part of us wanting to make this whole experience just plain fun. Thank you guys again. Keep an eye out on the site cause we'll still be posting plenty of things from our time here in LA.
Love,
Hayley

Prediction: This will be the band's best album - yet "old" fans will rebel and say they don't like it due to the member change situation.

I've been a fan since I was 15 and I'm still excited about this. I loved all of the "singles" except "Hello Cold World"

That's not a prediction, that's a fact, it always happen when bands get popular, their sound changes a little etc..., just look at fun., I've seen some people not liking them because they were on Glee and a car commercial.

I agree. I just find it odd still that they're parading the meetings and such, not that they're having them

I feel like if everyone hates the album first thing they're going to jump on is meeting with all the producers, even though bands typically do that anyway haha

They lost two members, but gained many more songwriters who will help write the album, no?

That makes no sense.

If people "hate" the album they'll jump on the color of Hayley's jean jacket as a reason to bash on her. They'll be a group that won't even listen to the band and will hate on her.

All We Know Is Falling and Riot! were mainly written by Hayley and Josh, now it's Hayley and Taylor.
