The lineup for PARAHOY! 2 is here, and it’s a good one. If you’ve already reserved your spot on the boat, high five! If not, you can still join the waiting list in case a few more open up. Visit Parahoy.com for all the info you could ever need on the second voyage, and we’ll see you in March!
The band is taking a break to live life and write for album #5, but they’re also working on some other cool projects! Taylor and Paramore touring member, Jon Howard, co-produced an amazing song from Jon Foreman’s new album The Wonderlands: Darkness. It’s called “Beautiful (Part II),” and you can listen to it on Spotify or purchase it on iTunes now!
Also, in case you missed it, Jeremy is also getting into producing too! He recently produced and played bass on the song “Violet Vibrato” from B.o.B.’s new album Psycadelik Thoughtz!
That’s right! All We Know Is Falling is officially TEN years old! It’s kind of hard to believe, isn’t it? Some of us were only kids when the album came out, but it’s safe to say that AWKIF impacted many lives from many different backgrounds. It has soundtracked tons of important moments in our lives, has helped inspire so many people today. Most of us, when asked such questions like, “What three items would you take with you on a desert island,” or, “What albums could you not live without,” would answer All We Know Is Falling.
Fuse even released a cool article for this special occasion where a few artists, including Lynn Gunn (PVRIS) and Simple Plan, shared their memories of the album as well as of the band over the past decade.

A Grammy, an ASCAP award, a gold album… Paramore’s finishing up the Self-Titled album cycle with some pretty awesome honors, and this one’s no exception. ‘Paramore’ finds itself on SPIN’s list of the 300 Best Albums of the Past 30 Years – and at #228, no less!
228. Paramore, Paramore (Fueled By Ramen/Atlantic, 2013)
Paramore’s self-titled album saw 24-year-old Hayley Williams on her grown-up s—t, with an album big and smart and tuneful enough to make radio programmers forget that rock music on Top 40 wasn’t really a thing anymore in 2013, led by lyrics that excoriated anyone who lacked the maturity and ambition to even attempt to get on her level. “I hope I die before I get old,” the (mostly male) brat-punk contingent still quipped, and “Well then why don’t you already?” was Williams’ room-silencing reply. — ANDREW UNTERBERGER
