Paramore are set to return with their first new single in five years. Entitled “This Is Why,” it’s due out on September 28th.
“This Is Why” is likely the first preview of Paramore’s sixth album. Earlier this year, singer Hayley Williams confirmed that the band was in the studio working on their follow-up to 2017’s After Laughter and promised that it would put “more emphasis back on the guitar.”
The song’s releases comes ahead of Paramore’s upcoming US tour, which launches on October 2nd in Bakersfield and runs through the middle of November. In addition to a series of headlining shows, the band will also appear at Las Vegas’ When We Were Young Festival, Austin City Limits, and Mexico’s Corona Capital.
