Paramore is an American rock band formed in Franklin, Tennessee in 2004. With a pop punk and alternative rock sound, the band has released four albums as of April 2013.
Home-schooled teenage vocalist Hayley Williams was signed to Atlantic Records in 2003 as a pop singer, but she despised the cliché and insisted instead on venturing into the alternative rock genre. With friends Josh and Zac Farro, Jeremy Davis, and Jason Bynem, Williams convinced John Janick of smaller record label Fueled by Ramen to sign them as a band. Paramore’s first album “All I Know is Falling” came out on 26 July 2005. The single “Pressure” was Paramore’s debut single, which gained some airplay on the radio waves. However, the band’s name earned major exposure through concert performances, especially at the Warped Tour 2006, winning “Best New Band.”
Paramore’s second album “RIOT!” came out in January 2007, with single “Misery Business” airing in June 2007. The group made their cinematic debut with singles “Decode” and “I Caught Myself” appearing on the movie “Twilight”’s soundtrack. By this time, Paramore had become a major name in alt rock music, with Williams’ fiery red locks as their signature. John Mayer complimented the singer’s voice and named her the “great orange hope.”
The band’s most successful album “Brand New Eyes” was released in 2009 and eventually became certified gold. The single “Ignorance” peaked at #1 on the UK Rock Chart and song “The Only Exception” received significant airplay in the U.S. Paramore began touring alongside major artists like Green Day, No Doubt, and Jimmy Eat World.
Due to a difference in opinion about management, brothers Josh and Zac Farro left the band in 2010. Jeremy Davis stayed on as guitarist and Taylor York as guitarist and percussionist.
Self-titled album “Paramore” came out on 4 April 2013. The single “Ain’t It Fun” was released in February 2014 and is the band’s most successful song played on the radio in the U.S. The band has cited New Found Glory, Jimmy Eat World, U2, and Blink- 182 as influences. Although she doesn’t agree, Hayley Williams has been compared to singers like Avril Lavigne and Kelly Clarkson for her stunning vocal ability and girl power as goddess of rock.
