More than 4 years have passed since Paramore released a full-length album--their last was 2013's self-titled LP, including lead single "Ain't It Fun." Now, at last, the pop-punk group returns today, dropping a certified treasure trove of new material upon us that's noticeably more pop than ever before.
Not only have they released a music video for their sunny single "Hard Times," they've announced an entire new album, After Laughter, featuring the new song as its first track. And, to really get us going this Wednesday morning, they've released the official tracklist and candy-colored album art.
Take a look at Paramore's new '80s-influenced world ahead of After Laughter's release on May 12.
