New Paramore and The Tour Continues...
What an insanely hectic few weeks! The gigs in London and Liverpool were fantastic in lovely venues with very appreciative crowds. It was also great to spend some time wandering around Liverpool, seeing the sites and soaking in the musical atmosphere along with a heavy dose of vinyl shopping!
Next up this weekend is a big trek playing in Birmingham and Glasgow. Its going to be a long drive but its always fun playing new places. I've never been to Glasgow so it will be nice to check out somewhere new.
While we've been on tour, Paramore have released their new album "After Laughter" and its certainly divided opinion. Straying wildly from their rock pop punk origins to a more 80's synth pop sound it really is a marmite moment. It's personally grown on me since I first heard it and any new album that has tons of chorused guitar on is ok in my book. We debuted the first single from the album, "Hard Times", at the last few gigs, beating the actual group in playing it live. It's had a great reception from the crowd and I'm sure we'll be adding more new ones to the set as soon as we can.
Anyway, I need to pack for the weekends gigging frivolities, see you on the road!
