Paramore announce Long Awaited North American Tour
Iconic pop punk band Paramore announced a new tour to promote their upcoming album This is Why. The tour kicks off in Charlotte, North Carolina on May.23 before making stops in cities such as New York, Toronto, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Joining them on their tour as openers include indie acts such as Foals, Bloc Party and The Linda Lindas. A portion of the revenues generated from ticket sales will go to Support+Feed and Reverb. Support+Feed is an organisation that strives to combat hunger and food crisis by creating a plant based food system. Reverb is an organisation whose goal is to make concerts more environmentally friendly.
Paramore are a band that need no introduction, having gained worldwide critical acclaim and one of the strongest followings in pop punk. Following their formation in 2004 in Franklin, Tennessee they have gone on to shape the sound of emo and pop punk in the 2000s. They have iconic songs such as “Misery Business” and “Ain’t It Fun,” that perfectly tap into the angst and frustration that many experience with life. Their influence can be notably heard in the music of today, with many current musicians such as Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo coming out and mentioning how much they have inspired them. The band’s forthcoming album This is Why follows the release of 2017’s critically acclaimed After Laughter. This is Why is expected to be released on Feb.10 of the upcoming year.
Paramore are currently on a smaller tour that sees them making stops in New York, Toronto and South American cities such as Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires and Santiago. They are expected to headline the Adjacent Musical Festival, that will take place in New Jersey during the memorial weekend of next year.
