After the departure of Farro brothers in December 2010, Paramore as a trio – Hayley Williams, Taylor York and Jeremy Davis – entered the studio in Los Angeles on 2nd of June 2012. At the beginning of 2012, the band started looking for the best producer of their new music. After a couple of meetings, Paramore announced that their fourth studio album will be produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen. At the end of 2012, the band revealed that the upcoming album, ready to release on 9th of April 2013, will be titled „Paramore.” The official statement about the record says that the album has been self-titled through nearly the entire process.

The first single promoting an album, released on January 22, 2013, was song „Now”, which did not debut on Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart. The single had however made it to #16 on Hot Rock Songs and #13 on Alternative Songs. Song, even though it was believed to have „fantastically catchy chorus”, did not become one of Paramore most popular singles. In fact, it wasn’t successful outside the US and even in the States its success couldn’t have been compared to the success of the singles from the „brand new eyes” longplay.

Facing no boost from „Now,” Paramore released another single, „Still Into You” which premiered on March 14, 2013. The song presented a completely different side of the upcoming album and it was that sound which got people’s attention. The song received a double platinum plaque in the United States and Australia, Gold in Canada and Silver in the United Kingdom. It reached #24 on Billboard Hot 100 Singles charts, #6 on Hot Rock Songs and #8 on Mainstream Top 40 and became one of the biggest Paramore singles to date, most commercially successful songs.

It took Paramore over a year to release a third official, worldwide single from the album. „Ain’t It Fun” was released on February 4th, 2014 with a music video to premiere on January 29th, 2014. A very first version of the music video, shot in July of 2013 by Jonathan Desbiens, was cancelled. In an official statement Hayley explained this decision saying: „unhappiness with the direction the video was headed.” The band worked on a second version of the video with Sophia Peer and shot it on December 2nd, 2013 in Franklin, Tennessee. The single was certified double Platinum in the US and Gold in Canada. It peaked at #47 on Billboard Hot 100, #7 on Rock Songs and #23 on Pop Songs. Also, it won a very first Grammy Award for Paramore. Hayley and Taylor were awarded with a Grammy for writing and composing the Best Rock Song.

In between of the radio single releases, and still having „Still Into You” rocking the charts worldwide, Paramore worked on three surprise releases for fans. First one was a music video for „Anklebiters” song which debuted on June 23, 2013. Second one was a live music video for „Daydreaming” which Paramore shot on two days in row show at the London’s Wembley Arena in September 2013. The song was released as the album’s third single in the UK on December 2, 2013. It peaked at #33 on UK Rock Chart. Finally the last one was a live music video for „Last Hope”, recorded during the MONUMENTOUR in Chicago, Illinois on July 11, 2014.

After the grand success of „Riot!”, exhausting series of concerts and cancelled tour in Europe, in January 2009 Josh Farro openly spoke to Kerrang! about the band’s third upcoming studio album, which was later titled „brand new eyes”. Rob Cavallo, who prior to this produced Paramore’s great hit „Decode”, was set to do it again. Album was released on 29th September 2009 and after extremely successful advance sale and decent sale figures in its first week, it debuted on #2 of Billboard 200. In January 2010, recording went gold in US and in November 2010 platinum in UK. As yet, „brand new eyes” is the most successful band’s album regarding worldwide charts.


The first released single was „Ignorance”, which debuted in July 2009. In spite of fair media’s buzz and support of the fans, it didn’t repeat the success of „Misery Business” on worldwide tops. „Brick By Boring Brick” was chosen the be the second single and was released on 23rd November 2009. The track was highly acclaimed by prestigious music magazines and became one of the most recognizable song of „brand new eyes”, but it wasn’t until the third single when the whole world fell in love with a song of this album. In February 2010 „The Only Exception” was released as a single and went platinum in US and Australia, as well as gold in UK and was the first Paramore’s track on Brazilian hit charts. In 2011 song was honored by Grammy nomination in the section „Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals”, nevertheless it didn’t manage to receive the award.

After unprecendented success of „The Only Exception”, song „Careful” was chosen to represent „brand new eyes” next. Track attained warm welcome in UK, but wasn’t nearly as successful as the previous singles. The fifth and last single of the third album was „Playing God” released on 15th November 2010, which alike the previous singles, shaked the charts in UK.

Upon successful series of concerts promoting „All We Know Is Falling” and taking a short break in January 2007, the band started working on the second studio album, „Riot!”. The great honor of being the producer fell to Devid Bendeth, and Josh Farro wasn’t the alone guitar player anymore, as Taylor York, band’s longtime buddy, joined to support him; he was supposed to be only temporary replacement of Hunter Lamb, who decided to leave because of lack of time for his family. Album was finished by April and it was released on 12th June 2007 reaching position #20 of Billboard 200 and #24 of UK Charts. During the first week 44,000 units were sold in US only, which makes it almost the same sales figures as those made by „All We Know Is Falling” through a few years. „Riot!” went gold in countries like UK, Canada, Australia or New Zealand and platinum in US and Ireland. Solid sales figures resulted in the publication of an arrays of deluxe editions in the online shops worldwide and thus making exclusive songs available, which weren’t originally on the album at first. During the process of making an album, Paramore was supported by their fans, who got a chance of participating in the contest called „The Last Song You’ll Ever Sing”, which let them record choirs for „Born for This”. The winner was Mary Bonney, at that time citizen of Virginia.

The first single promoting an album was, released on 10th July 2007, song „Misery Business”, which debuted on #99 of Billboard Hot 100 and finally ended its victorious march on #26. In September 2008, it went platinum in US, surpassing range of 1 million of downloads (at least those legal), which doubled in December. This was Paramore’s first worldwide hit and chance of reaching more countries, which never heard of them thus far. In February 2008,  UK Accorto Record Store decided to release the re-edition single, which turned out to be the first Paramore’s track on UK Singles Chart list and landed on position #17. After the success of „Misery Business”, it was decided to release an UK-exclusive single. „Hallelujah” became it on 30th July 2007 and it pushed its way to #139 on UK Single Chart. The second „worldwide” single was „crushcrushcrush”, published in November 2007 in US and January 2008 in UK. On 17th September 2008 it went gold in US and thus turned into another recognizable song of Paramore.

All We Know Is Falling is the debut studio album of Paramore, which had been recorded for the three months in Orlando, Florida and was released on 26th July 2005 in USA, 24th April 2006 in UK, 25th June 2009 in Brazil and in September 2005 in Japan, where the tracklist was extended by an extra song. Title managed to reach position #30 of Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart and #8 of UK Rock Chart. „Conspiracy”, the song written a long before signing an agreement was included on this record, as well as „All We Know”, inspired by an unexpected leaving of Jeremy Davis. His departure triggered the invention of album’s title, „All We Know Is Falling” and was visible on record’s cover-art in the form of silhouette reflected on the red sofa.

In April 2009, the number of sold copies surpassed 405,110, which resulted in impact on „Riot!”, the next studio album, being met with a warm reception. Until „Riot!” release, the sale of „All We Know Is Falling” slightly exceeded 50,000 units. Currently, on US market, album is gold and thus on 26th 2009 a deluxe edition of it was released on iTunes.

The first single promoting album, „Pressure”, was published on 31st June 2005 in US and 22th April 2006 in UK, and it made its way to #62 of Billboard Hot Digital Songs Chart. The second single, „Emergency”, was released on 21st October 2006 in US. In UK, where it was published 26th August 2006, it was decided to release it in the form of  7″ vinyl and add to it „Oh, Star” (mentioned extra song of Japan release) along with band’s poster. Rock music magazine „Kerrang!” in compilation „Class of ’06” called this song one of the best rock tracks of that year. „All We Know” was chosen to be the third single and released at first in UK (26th December 2006) and then in US (26th February 2007).
