Paramore have claimed the No. 1 spot of the album charts in both the UK and Australia with their brand new studio album, "This Is Why", marking the third time they have topped the charts in both countries.

The Oriel Company sent over the following: Released on February 10th on Atlantic, This Is Why also received the #1 spots on Billboard's Top Album Sales chart, Billboard's Vinyl Album Chart, Billboard's Alternative Album chart, Billboard's Rock Album chart, Billboard's digital album chart and landed at #2 on the Billboard 200.

The album's title track - released in September - recently earned the band their first #1 at Alternative Radio and was voted "Hottest Record Of The Year" by BBC Radio 1 listeners in the UK. Last week they released the video for new single "Running Out Of Time."

Paramore is now gearing up to join Taylor Swift on the opening nights of her Eras Tour in Glendale, Arizona on March 17th and 18th before embarking on a sold-out global arena tour, kicking off in South America in March, followed by a UK run in April, and a North American run starting in May. Support comes from Bloc Party, Foals, The Linda Lindas and Genesis Owusu.

For the band's largest headline arena shows in more than a decade they'll make stops at some of the most iconic venues including two nights at London's O2 Arena, two nights at New York's Madison Square Garden, Toronto's Scotiabank Arena, Austin's Moody Center, two nights at Los Angeles' Kia Forum, Seattle's Climate Pledge Arena and more before wrapping up in St. Paul, MN at Xcel Energy Center on August 2nd. The band are donating a portion of their ticket sales to organizations working in areas of essential community support, including Support & Feed and REVERB.
