Paramore Discuss New Album

(Radio.com) Paramore may have had some line-up changes, some ups-and-downs, and spent a lot of time in their pajamas in the last two years but "Now" lead vocalist Hayley Williams, bassist Jeremy Davis, and guitarist Taylor York finally feel like their newly-energized music career and upcoming self-titled album is "real."

"Now that we're back at KROQ; it's official," said Williams in an interview with Kevin & Bean. "It kind of feels like we just joined this band and we're starting from scratch. It's really nice. I don't think a lot of bands get that chance, that feeling, you know? We've been playing music for what, almost ten years together, and this feels like day one."

For some, there were doubts that Paramore would come back after their extended hiatus and interpersonal drama, but Williams said that they "held it together all right" and were humbled and realistic about the future. They kept in mind that even bands with the best energy have off days.

"It was definitely hard at first, but we had to keep in our minds, 'Move forward. Move forward. Move forward.'" Part of the way Paramore moved forward was to make a grand statement with the bold choice of using their name as an album title. While most bands do that on their first album, Paramore did that on their fourth to showcase their new beginning.

With singles like "Now," it's clear that their sound is as fresh as their perspective. "There needs to be an evolutions," joked Williams. "So, now it's seventeen tracks of dubstep." more.
