Paramore are a rock band coming from Franklin, Tennessee which were formed in 2004 with Hayley Williams as a lead singer and keyboardist, Josh Farro as a lead guitarist and backing vocalist, Jeremy Davis as a bass guitarist, and Zac Farro as a drummer. They were then joined by Hayley's neighbor Jason Bynum as a rhythm guitarist. Over the following years, they started performing at venues outside the greater Nashville area, including singing at several concert festivals "Purple Door" and "Warped Tour".

Wanting to step further into the music industry, Paramore sent a demo to John Janick, CEO and co-founder of the music label, Fueled by Ramen. John was amazed by their rock sounds and decided to go to one of their live performances at Taste of Chaos in Orlando, Florida to see them singing live. Finding their shining musical talents, John invited them for a smaller private performance and signed them to the label in April 2005.

Holding the chance to record music in their hands, Paramore didn't want to waste their time and started to record a debut album. At that stage, Jeremy unfortunately had to leave the band citing personal reason. Two days after he left, the four remaining band wrote a song called "All We Know" as a tribute to Jeremy's withdrawal. "We decided we were going to base the album off of that, which is also what the cover means. The couch with no one there and the shadow walking away; it's all about Jeremy leaving us and us feeling like there's an empty space," Hayley said during an interview. Before their debut album "All We Know Is Falling" was released, Paramore asked Jeremy to re-join them. The idea was agreed by Jeremy and they once again became a five-piece band. Tied together with five members, they dropped the record on July 24, 2005. The LP peaked at number 13 on Billboard Top Pop Catalog. Meanwhile, their first single off the effort "Pressure" managed to climb to number 62 on Billboard Hot Digital Songs.

In January 2006, Paramore were lined up for "Winter Go West Tour" performer. They played alongside Amber Pacific and The Lashes. In spring 2006, Paramore were booked as an opening act on headlining tours for Bayside and The Rocket Summer. Their performance continued as they played a portion of "Warped Tour" in summer 2006, primarily on Volcom and Hurley Stages. Finally, Paramore got their first United States headlining tour on August 2, 2006. The ticket for the concert was sold-out. Their performance on the tour was supported by such bands as This Providence, Cute Is What We Aim for, and Hit the Lights. The tour was wrapped up in Nashville. Performing at several festivals, becoming an opening act for other bands, and holding their own concert led them voted as "Best New Band" by readers of the British magazine Kerrang! In that year.

In January 2007, Paramore entered the recording room cooking up new materials for their sophomore major studio album. Teaming up with David Bendeth, the same man who helped Breaking Benjamin producing "Phobia", Paramore recorded "Riot!" and dropped it in June 2007. The album peaked at number 15 on Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart and at number 2 on U.K. Rock Albums chart.

Following their success with "Riot!", Paramore were signed by director of "Twilight" to write songs for the movie soundtrack. They worked on two theme songs, one of which was titled "Decode" and deals with anger and outrage that are experienced by the main characters in the movie. The other one was a slower jam called "I Caught Myself".

The soundtrack album for the romantic drama movie was released on November 4 featuring also singles from Muse and Linkin Park. The LP made its debut at number 1 on Billboard Hot 200 albums chart, having sold about 164,700 copies in its first week in the U.S. stores and added another 107,000 copies in its second week on sale.

In early November 2008, Paramore started working on new materials for their third major studio effort. During an interview with MTV, Hayley shared that the band wanted "to make a great record" for their next project. "With the way I write, I feel like I write better from those kinds of intense struggles. I pull a lot from those experiences," she said. "We've all learned a lot about friendship, we've learned a lot about ourselves, so I'm really excited to see how it turns out."

In further statement, Hayley revealed that Paramore refused to rush their work because they wanted to have more quality time for themselves, family, and friends. "We're just learning about that side of ourselves - [the side] that's not on the road and not busy and intense all the time. It's amazing, it's really been good for us," she explained.

While their next project is still in the work, Paramore confirmed that a live CD/DVD set titled "The Final Riot!" containing the band's live taped performances during their "Final Riot! Summer Tour 2008" will be outed soon. Taped and recorded during their nearly non-stop tour, the double CD/DVD package will present the band's extraordinary year with live renditions of hits such as "Misery Business" and "That's What You Get". It is scheduled to come out on November 25 in the U.S. and will also feature the band in their most intimate moments on tour with exclusive interviews and full access behind the scenes on the bus, at soundcheck as well as at rehearsals.

evo jos jedne....


Over the past two years, Paramore, the rapidly emerging pop-punk quintet from Tennessee, has been building a near-deafening "next big thing" buzz. Driven by riveting live shows and the undeniable charisma of their frontwoman, 18-year-old Hayley Williams, they have captivated an increasingly rabid following. Confronted by the double-edged sword of overwhelming early praise, Paramore has risen to the challenge and recorded an album that happily delivers on all the claims made on their behalf. With their new Fueled By Ramen collection, "RIOT!," they announce that they have the talent, the passion, and the songs to take themselves to the next level.

The band's rise has been the result of consistent hard work since Hayley first met Josh Farro (guitar, age 19) and his younger brother Zac (drums, age 16) while they were together in school four years ago. After adding Jeremy Davis (bass, age 22), Paramore was formed in 2004. They played their first show in Nashville, and were soon building a local fanbase. After just a few months of gigging, the band had their first big break in early 2005, when Fueled By Ramen founder John Janick saw them at a gig in Florida. He was instantly struck by their presence and their dedication, and he immediately signed the band to the label. As Hayley says, "Fueled By Ramen has been amazing to us. So many kids started checking us out because our name is on their roster. It's like a big family; we all share such a massive unit of fans."

Upon the release of their debut album, "ALL WE KNOW IS FALLING," in the summer of 2005, the music community began taking immediate notice of the band. The New York Times and Spin hailed the album, singling out Hayley as a star in the making. Non-stop touring throughout 2006 with bands such as Straylight Run and Simple Plan, combined with show-stealing festival performances at Warped and Bamboozle, continued to build the momentum. The year culminated with a sold-out headlining tour of North America in the fall of 2006, as well as successful tours of both Europe and Japan.

The accolades continued as 2006 came to a close. After an overwhelming response to a U.K. tour at the end of the year, Kerrang! readers voted Paramore as the "Best New Band" and Hayley as the #2 "Sexiest Female." NME named Paramore one of the ten acts to watch in their "New Noise 2007" feature, proclaiming Williams as "young, articulate and with plenty to say." Some bands would begin to get nervous with those kinds of accolades. Not Paramore. "I love getting all the ‘Next Big Thing' notices," says Hayley with a grin. Josh continues, "The first few years everything was new to us and we made a name for ourselves as a band in a lot of places. But with ‘RIOT!,' we're really ready to blow people's minds."

It only takes one listen to "RIOT!" to see the depth of the band's growth in the past two years. Produced by David Bendeth (Hawthorne Heights, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Killswitch Engage), the music has taken on a richer, deeper, more intense tone, without sacrificing any of the melodicism that has been their trademark. As Hayley explains, "For us, the title ‘RIOT!' literally means an unbridled outburst of emotions. When we were writing, it seemed like our thoughts and emotions were coming out so fast that we couldn't control them. It felt like there was a riot within us. So the album takes our passion to a new level; it's just all raw energy."

That raw energy and passion is evident in "Misery Business," a song that has its origins in a message Hayley put on the band's Live Journal page, asking her fans to post what they're ashamed of. "I found that people really were reaching out to someone to spill their guts to," she recalls, "So I did the same thing lyrically in the song and let everything out. It's more honest than anything I've ever written, and the guys matched that emotion musically."

The wryly titled "For A Pessimist, I'm Pretty Optimistic" stems from what Josh reflects as "putting your faith in someone and they blow it." But in the writing of the song, he saw that his faith in his bandmates was not misplaced: "I wrote the music specifically to be awesome live and to be extremely energetic. It all came out at once. I showed it to Hayley and she just nailed it lyrically. She completely got the feeling I wanted the song to have." And "Hallelujah" serves as one of the album's true anthems. As Hayley recounts, "It's one of the oldest songs we've got, but we wanted to save it for this record, and it's the perfect home for it. It's a claim of victory for both ourselves and our fans."

That connection with their audience is most evident in "Born For This," a song that was specifically written for their fans. "We wrote it as a message to them," Hayley explains. "They're going to take us to the next level. Everything they've done has helped us so much… it's really kept us going." And to drive that point home, the band held an online contest for fans, with the winners getting to sing gang vocals on the song.

"Next big things" come and go, but it is obvious that Paramore has something special – both talent and staying power. "RIOT" is the band's declaration of ambition, musical growth, and dedication. "We all have such a love and passion for this music," says Josh. "We're lucky to have made such a connection with our fans that we're making a difference in their lives." Hayley concludes, "We want everyone to hear this album. We want to take it as far as we can. ‘RIOT!' is everything we ever wanted to say on one album. If it all ended today, this is what we'd want to be remembered for.
