Paramore have revealed that their fourth album will be self-titled and called Paramore.

Writing on their blog, the band said that agreeing on the name had been only a "five-minute conversation".

They described the album, to be released on 9 April, as a rediscovery of themselves as a band and as friends.

It was a process that allowed us the freedom to explore new territory artistically... to liberate ourselves as musicians, singers, as people

The US three-piece wrote: "Sincerely, we feel that the best way to give it a name is just to call it what it is. This album is us."

The first single from the new album is called Now.

The record will be their first since 2009's Brand New Eyes.

It also marks the band's recording comeback after the departure of founding members Josh and Zac Farro at the end of 2010.

At the time, Josh Farro claimed the band was too manufactured and that other members were "less important" than Hayley Williams.

Writing in their blog post, Paramore hinted that the sound of the new album would also be quite different.

"It was a process that allowed us the freedom to explore new territory artistically... to liberate ourselves as musicians, singers, as people.

"You can rise from ashes. You can make something out of even less than nothing."
