After several days of teasing something by updating profile and cover photos on social media, Paramore have finally announced the details of their brand new album After Laughter and have released the first single off the new album titled “Hard Times”. The band’s fifth album and first with their newest line-up of Hayley Williams, Taylor York and Zac Farro, is due for release on May 12th via Fueled By Ramen. Co-produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen and the band’s guitarist Taylor York and recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, the album follows on from their previous self-titled album, which landed all the way back in 2013. This is Paramore’s first new music since 2013’s self-titled release. It also marks their first recording with original drummer Zac Farro in nearly seven years. Full album track listing and album artwork is below, along with the new single/music video. Check it out and let us know your thoughts!
