Fueled By Ramen recording group Paramore has announced the eagerly awaited release of their fifth studio album. “AFTER LAUGHTER” will arrive everywhere on Friday, May 12th.  The GRAMMY Award-winning band’s first new album in more than four years, “AFTER LAUGHTER,” is available for pre-order beginning today and accompanied by an instant grat download of the just unveiled new single, “Hard Times.”  “Hard Times” is joined by a dynamic new companion video. The clip, directed by Andrew Joffe, premieres today exclusively on Fueled By Ramen’s official YouTube channel.

“AFTER LAUGHTER” was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio B – Paramore’s first time recording in their own beloved hometown. The album is produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen and Paramore’s own Taylor York.   “AFTER LAUGHTER” also marks the return of original member Zac Farro back to the band.

Paramore will kick off a European headline tour this June.  For tour dates and more news, please visit paramore.net

Paramore – 4x GRAMMY nominees and winner of the “Best Rock Song” trophy at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards – have long established themselves as international rock superstars.  Their previous self-titled album “PARAMORE” made a chart topping debut atop the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its April 2013 release marking Paramore’s first #1 album to date – and also scoring an array of #1 debuts around the globe. “PARAMORE” showcased a string of blockbuster singles including two 2x RIAA platinum-certified hits, the top 10 “Still Into You” and the #1 smash, “Ain’t It Fun.” The latter track proved Paramore’s biggest single to date, ascending to #1 at Hot AC and Rock radio outlets nationwide, #2 at Top 40, as well as to the top 10 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” – the band’s first ever top 10 hit on the overall chart and their highest peaking song thus far.

Paramore has had a truly remarkable run of RIAA certified albums and singles since coming together in Nashville in 2004, from 2005’s gold-certified debut, “ALL WE KNOW IS FALLING” and 2007’s 2x platinum-certified breakthrough, “RIOT!” (with its 3x platinum-certified hit, “Misery Business,” as well as the platinum-certified singles “crushcrushcrush” and “That’s What You Get”) to 2008’s worldwide platinum “Decode” (from Chop Shop/Atlantic’s chart-topping “TWILIGHT – ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK”) and 2009’s platinum-certified “brand new eyes” and its GRAMMY®-nominated smash, “The Only Exception.”

Long regarded as an exhilarating live act, Paramore has spent much of the past decade-plus on the road, with highlights including sold out headline arena tours and show-stealing festival sets around the globe. Paramore has consistently drawn both critical acclaim as well as a wide ranging list of international honors and accolades, now including a GRAMMY® Award, two People’s Choice Awards, three NME Awards, three MTV Video Music Award nominations, and much much more.
