Ignorance Is Bliss

**Paramore have chosen not to be recorded for TV or Online at Reading + Leeds 2012**

Starting from an early age, Hayley Williams knew her future lay in honest, angst-ridden rock. Signed to Atlantic Records in 2003 to be their future pop star, she resisted the labels intentions instead paving the way for her, bassist Jeremy Davis and guitarist Taylor York to become the phenomenon that is Paramore.

With three studio albums under their belt, including debut All We Know Is Falling which astonishingly took only three weeks to record, the threesome from Franklin, Tennessee have accumulated an dedicated fan base who go appropriately insane for them every time they hit the stage. Add to this the vocal powerhouse of Williams plus an incredible stage presence - last seen at Reading in 2010 where the crowd joyfully hung on every riff and lyric - and the anticipation for this August's show starts to intensify.

Latest album Brand New Eyes and the inclusion of single Decode in the first Twilight film has continued to add thousands more to the number of Paramore faithful - crazy for emo-charged, youthful pop punk that no-one does better.

An emo-pop collection that never skimps on fiendish catchiness.
