Paramore have confirmed their fourth studio album will be released on April 29, 2013.
A lot has happened to Paramore since their last record , Brand New Eyes was released in 2009. The rock quintet have since become a rock trio as guitarist Josh Farro and drummer Zac Farro left the band in 2012. However, this hasn't distinguished the remaining member's passion for making music and it seems they have been working all year round on the new record. The band now consists of Jeremy Davis, Taylor York and Hayley Williams
Writing on the band's website, lead singer, Hayley Williams told fans: "The time has come Paramore fans, friends, and family... And for that matter, the time has come for the rest of you as well. We are ready to spill the beans about what we've been doing over the last *coughYEARcough*."
Williams continued: "With the most pride and passion we could ever possibly express, we would like to announce that this album, our fourth freaking album... will be self-titled, 'Paramore'."

As if this wasn't enough for Paramore fans, Williams also confirmed that the first single from the new album will be titled 'Now', but was tight-lipped as to when the single would be released.
Williams wrote: "It just feels like the perfect way to start this new journey we are embarking on not only as a band but as a movement. To show people that you can lose battles but come back and win full on wars. You can rise from ashes. You can make something out of even less than nothing. The only thing you have to do is keep moving forward!”
With such meaningful words, maybe if the album doesn't work out, Williams could become a motivational speaker.
2013 looks set to be a huge year for Paramore and we could be seeing them at our UK festivals, including next year's Reading And Leed Festival as the organisers have previously tipped the trio to be a future headliner.
