Bad grammar and run on sentences weeeeeee

If I remember correctly, this time last year we were somewhere on the opposite side of the world playing shows to people that we could’ve never imagined would know who we are or the songs we’ve written. It was such an exciting time to be in this band, with all sorts of new experiences and hurdles we were actually looking forward to jumping over.  The highest of them being a new album - our fourth full length album, to be exact - that would need writing and recording. We told everyone, fans and journalist, family, friends… everyone, that we were determined for this album to be a defining point in our career. Not for any reason other than that we would make this recording process the most enjoyable and the most liberating experience we’ve ever spent creating anything in the history of our band. While there were a few points early on that I felt it was going to be another stressful and severely taxing road to travel, a few months went by and we got into whatever “groove” we’re in now. Making this album is the reason that our band ever began. I don’t know if it’s going to be the biggest and most successful thing we’ve ever done… who even wants to know that sort of stuff ahead of time? I can’t be 100% sure if every fan or critic who’s ever enjoyed Paramore will enjoy all these songs as well. None of us know anything except for the fact that it is, hands down, our favorite body of work to date.  And a whole year from the night I wrote the first set of lyrics and melodies that would end up on our fourth album, it feels good to be able to say with all honestly how much we love what we’re doing right now.

A quick update on how things are actually going in the studio… we are 4 or 5 songs in. We like to record entire songs one at a time so we can actually hear how it’s coming together in real time rather than being all over the place with a million parts of a million songs all at once. Hence the reason only being a handful of songs in might seem a bit underwhelming to everyone outside our immediate bubble.

Seeing as most of the residents of our immediate creative bubble are back on tour duty… Our producer, JMJ, is out with Beck and we’re going on a mini tour that includes opening for The Cure at Reading and Leeds Festival (AHHHH!!!!)… we’ve taken a short break from making album #4 to see if we’ve still got what it takes to get out there and melt faces. I’ve got my hopes up and I don’t like to be let down. 

The guys and I are pretty psyched on our setlist and just playing shows in general. All I’m going to say is that I’ve had to actually go and buy a couple Paramore albums again in order to refresh my failing memory on some of the lyrics. So, just to prepare yourself, you might want to brush up on some of those older ones too. Wouldn’t want to be caught singing the wrong words, right? How embarrassing.
