Absolute Punk: Most Anticipated of 2012
Why We’re Anticipating: Brand New Eyes was a record no one was ready for. We knew Paramore had the chops to write some damn good songs, but they weren’t just a scene pop-punk now. With the release of Brand New Eyes they became a certifiable rock band. Hayley showed unparalleled power in her vocal performance and delivered a Grammy nomination for „The Only Exception.” The album was so dynamic that it was widely accepted from all kinds of critics. The band then released the Singles Club EP, which flew under the radar as it was not heavily promoted but nonetheless a great release. 2012 will be another big year of touring for Paramore in support of a new album.
