The band's first North American tour since 2010 will kick off April 25 in Houston, and sees them criss-crossing the continent with Los Angeles-based act Kitten in tow. According to their label, Fueled By Ramen, more dates will be announced in the coming weeks, but pre-sale tickets for the first dozen shows will be available to members of the Paramore Fan Club and Singles Club beginning Monday at 5 p.m. ET, with the general public getting a crack at them beginning on February 1. For more information, check out the band's official site.
Paramore's self-titled album is due in stores on April 9, but fans have already been given a taste of what they can expect from the record in the form of walloping first single "Now." A video for the song, directed by Daniel Cloud Campos, was shot earlier this month in L.A. and will premiere sometime in mid-February.
The album, produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen, is available for pre-order through Paramore's official site, and comes in a variety of options, including a deluxe box set that includes colored 12" vinyl, a 7" vinyl featuring exclusive b-sides, a hoodie and a photo book detailing the making of the record.
