Paramore played a secret(ish) show in Nashville this week on Wednesday night (May 10) at the legendary Exit/In. During the show, they premiered new music, including “Hard Times” and a cover of The Strokes “Someday.” On Friday (May 12) they released their new album After Laughter, which is their first in four long years.
After Laughter is Paramore’s fifth full-length album. It follows 2013’s self-titled LP, which lead singer Haley williams told the New York Times that she believed would be the band’s last.
“I didn’t even know if we were going to make another record. There was a moment when I didn’t even want it to happen. Then it was like, I want it to happen, but I don’t know how we’re going to do it.”
That album also solidified Paramore as a band with their Grammy award for “Ain’t It Fun”.
