The time has finally come! Four years after the release of their hugely successful self-titled album, Paramore will drop their fifth full length release titled After Laughter on May 12. The long-anticipated album is preceded by their latest single, “Hard Times” – an 80’s inspired pop track with a chorus that will be stuck in your head for the rest of the week. You can watch Paramore’s video for “Hard Times” below.
The artwork for After Laughter has also been released. Take a look!
After Laughter seems sure to harness the melodic sensibilities that have launched Paramore into the pop stratosphere over the past decade. Having original drummer Zac Farro back in the fold alongside guitarist Taylor York and vocalist Hayley Williams certainly adds an element of excitement as well.

Paramore (FOB & Imagine Dragons?) has been, essentially, the one rock act on top 40 stations of the past like 5 years. It’s nice to see them come back with something relevant. Glad that rock’s not dead.
