Paramore to Unveil Fourth Album Over Four Nights This Week

For fans who have been waiting a long time for the new, self-titled album by alternative/emo rock band Paramore, the wait is almost over—but not without a bit of hoopla preceding it.

While Paramore is not due to drop until April 9, the band has announced that they will be premiering the new record over the next four nights (April 1-4) on their website, paramore.net. Titled “Four Sides/Four Nights” (indicating the vinyl version of the record is a double album), the promotion will unveil one side of the album each night.

In a video announcement via YouTube, frontwoman Haley Williams explains: “Each night, for four nights, we’re going to show you one side of the album…Monday night we’re going to show you side A. Tuesday night, we’ll show you side B, and then so on and so on.” The band announcement does not specify a time when the new music will be available for listening.

The number four seems to have more significance for this release than just being a four-sided album premiered over four nights. It’s also the band’s fourth studio album, and fans have been waiting four years for it.

For a band that has been plagued recently with inner turmoil, including the departure of founding members Josh and Zac Ferro in 2010, the preliminary unveiling of this record (along with its release next week) will hopefully provide a welcome shift of focus back to the most important thing: the music. Be sure to check out paramore.net beginning Monday evening to catch Side A. Meanwhile, the official band announcement is below, along with a video of the album’s lead single “Now.”

About the Author

on MUSIC IS MY OXYGEN WEEKLY.

Tim Ferrar's interest in pop and rock started as a child, listening to Top-40 radio for hours on end while playing air guitar in his bedroom. Eventually air guitar led to electric guitar, and Tim began playing in bands and writing his own songs. With an admitted weakness for "a great hook or a great guitar riff," Tim's musical tastes are broad and varied, ranging from Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga on the pop side to Bon Jovi and Foo Fighters on the rock side- making him the ideal guy to cover our Rock and Pop categories. By day, Tim is a mild-mannered accountant in Chicago. By night, he rocks out on electric guitar in a cover band in various clubs around town- much to the surprise of some of his clients.
