World News
December 1, 2017

Formed in 2004, US band Paramore’s line-up has gone through some changes over the years, but has now stabilised with lead vocalist Hayley Williams, guitarist Taylor York and drummer Zac Farro.

Their latest and fifth album After Laughter reached No 1 in the US Rock Albums charts, No 3 in Australia and 4 in the UK, spawning the singles Hard Times and Told You.

Having just completed the North American leg of a world tour, the band return to Europe in 2018 for shows that include Spain’s Sant Jordi Club (cap. 4,600) in Barcelona, France’s Olympia (1,996) in Paris, the UK’s Motorpoint Arena (7,500) in Cardiff and the Netherlands AFAS Live (4,500) in Amsterdam.

“The band is constantly evolving and challenging themselves – from a writing perspective, as well as a live performance standpoint,” says their North American agent Ken Fermaglich at United Talenbt Agency in New York.

“Hayley Williams is one of the best frontwomen in the game. To watch them live … they are incendiary; a powerhouse.”

Paramore are managed by Mark Mercado at Fly South Music in Florida and their international agent is UK-based Geoff Meall, who it is believed is moving from United Talent Agency to Coda Music.
