Forming in 2004 in Tennessee, Paramore has and still is one of the best emo groups out there. The band consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams, guitarist Taylor York and drummer Zac Farro. Williams and Farro are founding members of the group, while York, a high school friend of the original lineup, joined in 2007. Though the group’s debut album, All We Know Is Falling, was dropped in 2005, the major success of 2007’s Riot! was made with hits like “Misery Business,” “Crushcrushcrush,” and “That’s What You Get” gave the band mainstream recognition.

Their 2009 follow-up, Brand New Eyes, is the band’s second-highest-charting album to date with hits like “Ignorance,” “Brick By Boring Brick,” “The Only Exception,” and “Playing God.” The following year, original members Josh and Zac Farro announced that they were leaving the band. In 2011, Hayley told MTV that despite the band losing two of its founding members, they would release new music soon. The singer also admitted that Paramore’s style was likely to change with the new members, but clarified that the band would still retain their core signature sound. Despite the band’s internal drama and coming and going of Zac, they continued to release three more albums (2013’s Paramore, 2017’s After Laughter, and 2023’s This Is Why).

This summer, the band is hitting the road again from May to August as part of their This Is Why tour. They will be joined by special guests Bloc Party, Foals, Genesis Owusu, and The Linda Lindas for selected dates. See the full tour lineup below.
