American rock trio Paramore are returning to Singapore

It’s been way too long–five years to be exact–since Paramore was in Singapore. The Grammy-Award winning band returns on Aug 21 to perform at Zepp @ Big Box as part of their “After Laughter” tour.

Sure, they may have adopted a new pop-ish, synth-heavy sound for their latest studio album, After Laughter, the band’s first after more than four years last May. While they might sound like a totally new band compared to music in their previous albums, these guys have established themselves an exciting live act to catch, having spent a lot of their time in the past decade on the road performing at sold out headline arena tours and festivals around the world. They’re essentially still the same.

Formed in 2003, the band now has a total of five records under their belt. Their 2013 self-titled record debuted at the top of the charts, making it their first #1 album, on top of their gold-certified All We Know is Falling, the two-time platinum-certified Riot!, which spawned hits like “Misery Business”, “crushcrushcrush” and “That’s What You Get”, and the platinum-certified brand new eyes.

Tickets are priced from $158 via Sistic from May 3 onwards.
