Fueled By Ramen (2017) EU
The Grammy Award-winning group's first new album in more than four years, After Laughter was recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio B – Paramore's first time recording in their own beloved hometown - and was produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, M83, Air) and the band's own Taylor York. After Laughter marks the return of original drummer Zac Farro and finds the band more pop than pop-punk for the first time incorporating '80s new wave and synth-pop influences with winning results. Home to the handful of infectious singles "Hard Times," "Told You So," "Fake Happy" and "Rose-Colored Boy," Rolling Stone called the album, "a gorgeously produced, hook-studded record with cocked-eyebrow trepidation adding a jittery edge – a combination that's very of-the-moment in 2017, even if it veers outside of pop's rigid lines."
