Does Paramore ever rest? If their recent performances and nearly sold out dates with Fall Out Boy this summer tell us anything, it’s that these Tennessee natives are most at home on the road. So it came as no surprise that while football fans around the country were celebrating (or mourning) their team’s outcome yesterday, Paramore was busy rocking out on the DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl for a lengthy one hour set. Check out their performance below.
It’s well-documented online that Fall Out Boy and Paramore fans are beside themselves at the thought of the two touring together this summer. But for anyone not totally convinced of the ideal pairing of these two, you can now check out a performance of Fall Out Boy’s “Sugar We’re Going Down” featuring Paramore’s Hayley Williams. The performance took place at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl on Jan. 28, and it felt effortless as Williams took over the chorus halfway through. Check it out below. (more…)
Somewhere between planning a new line of hair dye, and adhering to a crazy tour schedule, Hayley Williams and the rest of Paramore found time to film and release their new music video for “Ain’t It Fun.” The single comes off last year’s self-titled album, and features the band smashing tons of records, guitars, and other expensive things that probably shouldn’t be smashed. Besides destroying things, the band can also be seen catching feathers, walking backwards with stuffed animals, unwrapping a “mummy,” and other attempts at setting and breaking world records. Check out the video below. (more…)
Paramore‘s Hayley Williams, known for her amazing Technicolor dreamlocks, has announced plans to release her own line of hair dye later this year, via Manic Panic. Discussing the line she says:
“Right now, I am incredibly inspired by the force that is Manic Panic. I love their history, what they mean to so many generations of teenagers and punks, or anyone just looking for a new way to express themselves. My goal for 2014 is to get the hair color line I’ve always dreamed of creating. I came up with the name years ago and finally made the decision to start working on it last summer. There’s so much to do but Tish and Snooky and Manic Panic keep me believing in the hair-dye dream. “

NBC’s The Voice wrapped up last week, but not before inviting Paramore to the stage to belt out a high-energy performance of their hit, “Ain’t It Fun.” Taking the stage with them was Voice runner-up Jacquie Lee who, for the record, held her own against Paramore. Watch out, Hayley Williams, is all I’m saying.
Paramore will be heading to Australia and New Zealand this January alongside Twenty One Pilots and You Me At Six, before hitting their Parahoy! cruise with Tegan and Sara, New Found Glory, Shiny Toy Guns, mewithoutYou, Bad Rabbits, and Reuben Wu. Check out the video and tour dates below. (more…)
Taking to Twitter yesterday, Paramore shed light on the question of who would be the latest music industry notable to play drums. Fans may recall that longtime drummer Zac Farro left the band in 2010 and they have lacked a permanent drummer ever since. Nine Inch Nails drummer Ilan Rubin has filled in, but with Nine Inch Nails touring this fall, they had to find another replacement.
Gillespie’s band, The Almost, released an album through Tooth And Nail earlier this year. The group has yet to comment on Gillespie’s decision to join Paramore for the fall, but we’ll update you if anything develops further.
