The Grammy-nominated band Paramore - singer Hayley Williams, bassist Jeremy Davis, and guitarist Taylor York - unveiled the news of their first all-new release in more than three years via a personal blog announcement at the band’s official website, www.paramore.net:
"The whole making of this album was a rediscovering of ourselves as a band and as friends", the band wrote. "It was a process that allowed us the freedom to explore new territory artistically and to liberate ourselves as musicians, singers, as people!
"Sincerely, we feel that the best way to give it a name is just to call it what it is. This album is us."
The new album - Paramore’s fourth full-length studio recording - was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Justin Meldal-Johnson, known for his work with such diverse artists as Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Tegan and Sara, and M83.
