"Now" has also reaped considerable critical applause, with Entertainment Weekly awarding it an "A-," noting that its "driving buzz-saw guitars and (the) spunky-urgent defiance of Hayley Williams' shout are just disruptive enough to yank you out of your boring suspenders-folk coma and into and old-fashioned mosh pit." "Part No Doubt," declared People, "part Yeah Yeah Yeahs, all rad."
Paramore -- singer Hayley Williams, bassist Jeremy Davis, and guitarist Taylor York -- will celebrate the arrival of "PARAMORE" with a North American headline tour, set to embark April 25th at Houston's Bayou Music Theatre and then travel the continent through mid-May (see attached itinerary). Always a festival favorite, the band -- which only just concluded a whirlwind tour of Southeast Asia and Australia -- will also be among the top stars appearing at a range of upcoming radio-sponsored festivals, including 101.1 The Edge's annual Edgefest in Dallas on April 27th and Radio 104.5's WRFF Festival in Philadelphia on May 12th. Paramore will also hit the stage at a number of upcoming European extravaganzas, with Moscow's Park Live, the Netherlands' Pinkpop, and Germany's famed Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park among those already announced for June and beyond.

The band is also scheduled for a series of high profile TV appearances to celebrate the new album's release. Paramore will hit ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! on April 11th for a performance on the show's famed outdoor stage, followed on April 30th by a visit to TBS' Conan (check local listings). An additional slate of TV appearances will be announced soon.
