The rock band will hit the road soon after the release of their forthcoming album in April.
To support their much-anticipated self-titled album set to be released on April 9, Paramore will go on their first North American tour since 2010. The announcement by the rock band from Franklin, Tennessee comes on the heels of the recent release of their brand new song "Now".
The trio of lead vocalist Hayley Williams, bassist Jeremy Davis and guitarist Taylor York have revealed the first twelve dates of their concert tour which will kick off on April 25 in Houston, Texas. New York will host a May 16 leg, the last of the first dozen shows as the band assures more dates will be added.
The group will go across the country for their latest concert tour, visiting key cities Phoenix, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco for the first half of the whole tour before finally trekking to Salt Lake City, Denver, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto and Boston before the tentatively final New York show.
All-female Canadian heavy metal band Kittie will serve as the front act throughout the three-week spring tour. Paramore is expected to perform the seventeen new tracks from their upcoming fourth album, which includes the recently-released first track "Now".
The self-titled new album marks the band's much-awaited return to recording, since their 2009 studio effort "Brand New Eyes", their highest-charting album to-date. It has also been three years since the band's last North America Honda Civic Tour back in April 2010, which they followed up with a U.K. tour in November and a South America tour by the first quarter of the following year.
