Hayley Williams of Paramore has penned a note to fans after having to cancel to shows due to illness.
Writing from my bunk to let you know that my doctor and my vocal coach have told me I can’t play tonight either. I have a chest infection and … Something called "exhaustion". Ha. Words in this tiny little message cannot begin to express my frustration, sadness, and overall loopiness (the latter is likely just from the cortisone and antibiotics…ugh.)

Corpus Christi, you’ve been on my mind since I woke up this afternoon and Dallas, you’ll be on my mind the rest of the night. I absolutely hate canceling anything. Admitting defeat is a tough thing for this gal.

Anyway. Thanks for...

Paramore had to cancel their performance tonight due to Hayley Williams being sick. Fall Out Boy played an extended set.

Yahoo have posted some more of the Q&A with Hayley Williams of Paramore.
I'm starting to accept that 25 is not 16. Seven or eight years ago, we would go to Taco Bell, grab a bean burrito and run onstage. Now, getting ready for a show takes two hours – Jeremy and Taylor [York, Paramore's guitarist] have to wrap their ankles, and I have to do stretches so I don't hurt my neck from headbanging. I'm loving it, but I definitely might collapse at one of these shows.

Hayley Williams talks with Rolling Stone about Paramore's new level of success:
We took so long making this album that we couldn't help but be disconnected with what was going on with music at the time. It was about how we felt in the moment, what was inspiring us and what made us excited to be in a band again, and it's so weird that those same songs are the ones that gave us the most success. Some of them are the poppiest things we've ever written..."Ain't It Fun" was like word vomit; it just came out, and now everybody's singing it, it's on the radio, it's really cool. I don't know if you get that twice in your career. This is the first time we've experienced it, and I'm just really...

Read my review and look at my photos from the Mansfield, MA stop of Fall Out Boy and Paramore's "Monumentour" with New Politics.
During Fall Out Boy's set, Wentz commented about how cool it is to have two rock bands with guitars that are played on the radio on tour together. Indeed, the Monumentour pairs two of our scene's biggest acts into one package. With dynamic, 75-minute sets from each band, fans of both are guaranteed to leave pleased. Maybe Save Rock and Roll was not, as naysayers purported, such a pretentious title after all.

There it is -- Paramore's "Ain't it Fun" is the #1 (adult-pop) song in the country.
More than eight years after the band first graced a Billboard chart, alt/pop trio Paramore scores its first No. 1 on an airplay ranking, as "Ain't It Fun" lifts 2-1 on Adult Pop Songs. The coronation is the song's latest honor, as it became the band's first Billboard Hot 100 top 10 (reaching No. 10) on the May 24 chart.

Hit the replies to hear the song "Mountain" from HalfNoise -- the project created by Zac Farro, formerly of Paramore.
As many of you may know, I am usually a drummer. But a few years ago I decided to see what writing and recording my own music would be like, HalfNoise. I made an EP in my house with a producer (Daniel James) and did a bit of touring. However it wasn't until I played a few shows in New Zealand and spent a few months there that I really realised my passion. In August of 2013, I went back to New Zealand and spent 7 months writing and recording the new HalfNoise album with my friend (producer) Daniel James. I wanted to experience life somewhere other than Nashville, Tenn and...

Former Paramore member Josh Farro has posted an update on what's going on with Novel American.
I want to fill you in on what's going on with me musically. Before I do that, I want to thank each and every one of you for your unending support and encouragement over the years. You inspire me to push through and create the music I was born to create. So thank you for that. As you may know after Zac and I left the band we started the project "Novel American". We had a great time meeting new musicians and collaborating with them. Throughout that process we could not find a lead singer. We met some incredibly talented guys, but unfortunately none of them worked out. This was a very difficult...

Whoever's idea it was to do this, they get an A+ in being a great person. Paramore posted on tumblr a GIF of "Ain't It Fun" single art that parodies the art for J-Biebs' "Believe" single. Check it out in the replies. If you need a refresher, this happened yesterday.
