Paramore Release New Track 'The News'

Paramore Release New Track 'The News'

"The News” is  the second track to be taken from their highly anticipated sixth studio album This is Why (out February 10, 2023 on Atlantic Records).

Following a mischievous roll-out that included mailing portions of the track on CD to Paramore stans and DMing their followers piece-meal lyrics, Paramore's invigorated return continues with "The News" - the second track to be taken from their highly anticipated sixth studio album This is Why (out February 10, 2023 on Atlantic Records).

The accompanying video, inspired by the band's favorite horror movies and thrillers, was filmed in their hometown of Nashville, TN and directed by Mike Kluge and Matthew DeLisi. One of Paramore's most striking, agile and frenetic songs, "The News" puts drummer Zac Farro and guitarist Taylor York's dynamic chemistry at the forefront while Hayley Williams' lyrics unleash the feelings of helplessness and anxiety that come with a desire to stay informed and engaged with current events, coupled with the emotional toll of being overwhelmed by the 24 hour news cycle.

Says Hayley, "The News is one of those songs that came together pretty quickly and felt exciting from the start. It feels like a happy medium between classic Paramore angst and bringing in some influences we've always had but never exploited. Watching Zac track drums for this one was one of my favorite memories from the studio. Lyrically, it probably explains itself. The 24-hr news cycle is just impossible to comprehend. And I feel a pang of guilt when I unplug to protect my headspace. The common reaction, or non-reaction, seems to be dissociation. Not one of us is innocent of that and who could blame us?"

The Grammy-winning trio revealed their new album plans in September with the release of the album's title track. "This Is Why," currently climbing streaming and alternative radio charts around the globe - saw the beloved band make their Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon debut in between a run of intimate theater dates and festival headlines.

Excitement for Paramore's live shows has never fiercer; they were recently announced to headline the kick-off of the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest in Glendale, AZ on Feb 9th and will join Taylor Swift on the opening night of her Eras Tour there on March 17th. Prior to their tour kickoff, the band will be doing a special, intimate album release show for fans on February 6 at The Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville.

Spring 2023 sees Paramore embark on their own global tour in support of This is Why, kicking off in South America in March, followed by a UK run in April, and a North American run starting in May. Support comes from Bloc Party, Foals, The Linda Lindas and Genesis Owusu.

For the band's largest headline arena shows in more than a decade they'll make stops at some of North America's most iconic venues including New York's Madison Square Garden, Toronto's Scotiabank Arena, Austin's Moody Center, Los Angeles' Kia Forum, Seattle's Climate Pledge Arena and more before wrapping up in St. Paul, MN at Xcel Energy Center on August 2nd. The band are donating a portion of their ticket sales to organizations working in areas of essential community support, including Support & Feed.

When Paramore revealed they were recording together in January 2022 the response from music fans around the world was immediate and celebratory. In the time since the Grammy-winning, RIAA-certified multi-Platinum band released their last album, After Laughter - and Hayley Williams unveiled two lauded solo albums - Paramore have become more popular than ever.

Over the last few years Paramore's influence and popularity has snowballed, as the age of streaming organically propelled them into a position as one of the world's biggest, most culturally compelling rock bands. For the band, who formed as teenagers in Tennessee, their 20 year trajectory has seen them grow from youthful outsiders to bone-fide pop culture icons, permeating the musical landscape by inspiring a new generation of musical talent.
