Fueled By Ramen recording group Paramore has announced details of their hugely anticipated new album. “brand new eyes” will land in stores and at all online retailers on September 29th.
Produced by Grammy Award-winner Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Kid Rock, My Chemical Romance) and co-produced by the band, “brand new eyes” is the long-awaited follow-up to 2007’s RIAA platinum certified second album, “RIOT!” The 11-track collection is unquestionably Paramore’s best and brightest album to date, fit to burst with all the exuberant melodies, breathless hooks, and irrepressible energy that has made the Nashville-based band one of the most popular rock outfits in recent memory (see attached tracklisting).
“brand new eyes” will be preceded by the first single, “Ignorance,” which is slated to hit Alternative Rock outlets nationwide in early July. A digital single will be available via all DSPs on July 7th. A companion video for “Ignorance” is now in pre-production and will premiere in August.
Pre-orders for ‘brand new eyes” will also begin on July 7th, with the physical edition on sale at the Grammy-nominated band’s official website, www.paramore.net. Two versions of the album will be available, a standard CD edition as well as a limited edition deluxe package. The deluxe version is limited to 15,000 pieces and includes the album on CD, a 40-page hardcover journal with Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams’ handwritten lyrics and notes on the album, a color vinyl 7” single with four acoustic songs, a DVD featuring an exclusive making-of documentary (with interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, plus rare band vignettes from www.paramore.net), a 16-page full-color booklet, an exclusive Paramore poster, five limited edition collectible Paramore photos printed on hardstock paper, and a numbered certificate of authenticity. The “brand new eyes” deluxe version will come packaged in an extraordinary special edition box and will only be available via www.paramore.net.
The #1 most trafficked website across all Warner Music Group artists, and the official home for all things Paramore, www.paramore.net, will be completely renovated to celebrate the release of “brand new eyes,” with a major relaunch slated for July 28th.
Paramore is currently introducing fans to some of their new material as the main support act on No Doubt’s eagerly awaited reunion tour. The North American trek is criss-crossing the continent now, culminating in a three-night finale at Irvine, California’s Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on July 31st, August 1st, and August 2nd (see attached itinerary). Upon the tour’s conclusion, Paramore will perform at the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan before embarking on their own U.S. headline tour, slated to hit smaller clubs and ballrooms across the country as a special celebration for their fervent fan following. They will then return to mainland Europe and the United Kingdom for a headline tour. Full details will be announced shortly.
In addition, Paramore are also set to star in their own edition of MTV Unplugged. The band will film the acoustic performance at a New York City studio later this month, with an airdate currently planned for mid-September (check local listings).
