, Staff

Paramore have revealed plans to return to the road this spring in support of their forthcoming self-titled album. The band will embark on a club and theater tour that stops in Massachusetts for a night at Boston’s House of Blues on Wednesday, May 15. Tickets for the show, which will also feature openers Kitten, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $36.50 and $49.50.

On tour, Paramore will support their forthcoming self-titled release due in stores April 9. The band’s fourth studio effort and follow-up to 2009’s Brand New Eyes, was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Justin Medal-Johnson (Beck, Tegan and Sara). Fans can get a taste of the new material with lead single “Now”, which is streaming below. A companion video, directed by award-winning filmmaker/dancer Daniel Cloud Campos, is now in post-production with a premiere date slated for mid-February.

Paramore, comprised of singer Hayley Williams, bassist Jeremy Davis, and guitarist Taylor York, unveiled the album news late last year via a personal blog announcement. “The whole making of this album was a rediscovering of ourselves as a band and as friends,” they wrote. “It was a process that allowed us the freedom to explore new territory artistically and to liberate ourselves as musicians, singers, as people! Sincerely, we feel that the best way to give it a name is just to call it what it is. This album is us.”
