After five years since their last release, “After Laughter”, in 2017, rock band Paramore has announced their return with a snippet via Discord.
The rock band posted a tour schedule on their website. The website is completely void of graphics and only shows a list of dates with some cryptic words.
It says “9.1 – discord,” and sure enough, the band released a 10-second clip of lead vocalist Hayley Williams singing in a recording booth.
The audio is muffled, and the video appears to have been shot from a distance, almost as if it were secretly recorded. According to iHeart, Williams sang, “Far, I’m far / So far from the fault line / Quite the opposite / I’m safe inside.” The following dates, September 7, 9, and 12, are labeled “blank,” “wr0ng,” and “LA,” respectively.
September 16 and 28 are currently blank, while September 19 says, “start spreading the news.” Stereogum speculated that “blank” and “wr0ng” could be song titles, but none of this has been confirmed as of this writing.
Fans are ecstatic that Paramore is finally making a comeback.
“I miss momma Hayley,” one fan tweeted, and others made memes about the rumored comeback.
A fan tweeted:
“Paramore is finally coming back after four years I can’t believe this is my life.”
Some fans also noticed that the three members of Paramore, Williams, Zac Farro, and Taylor York, changed their Instagram profile pictures.
Another fan mentioned that the band’s Instagram account had archived all of their previous posts.
The anticipated sixth studio album from Paramore will follow “After Laughter.”
According to reports, they have been teasing fans about this comeback for quite some time.
Williams told Nylon:
“The music we were first excited by wasn’t exactly the kind of music we went on to make.”
She revealed that the upcoming album would be “all over the place,” just like its predecessors.
” We’re still in the thick of it but some things have remained consistent from the start. 1) More emphasis back on the guitar, and 2) Zac should go as Animal as he wants with drum takes.”
Williams cited Bloc Party as the album’s “number one reference” in January.
“They had their own thing and it was so unique and so dynamic, and it really stuck with us.
And I’m really really thankful for this band, I’m so thankful that they’re back, they’re playing shows they’re putting out great songs, and it just makes me feel even more excited to get back out into the world, and maybe cross paths with the band that has been a huge part of our story from day one.”
There is no word on when the album will be released, but fans hope it will be soon.
