Recorded at Hollywood’s United Recording studios, the finely crafted soundscape is the celebrated band’s first full length release since 2018. Around the world, fans were invited to early listening parties at record stores for “This Is Why” Global Listening Events and release day Pop Up events in Sydney, Melbourne, London and Los Angeles. The band also performed their latest single “Running Out of Time” on Jimmy Kimmel Live. After their Nashville hometown album release show at the Grand Ol’ Opry, Paramore will be joining Taylor Swift on the opening nights of her Eras Tour in Glendale, Arizona on March 17th and 18th.
The spring sees Paramore embark on their own global tour in support of “This Is Why,” kicking off in South America in March, followed by a UK run in April, and a North American run starting in May. For the band’s largest headline arena shows in more than a decade they’ll make stops at global iconic venues, including two nights at London’s O2 Arena, two nights at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena, Austin’s Moody Center, two nights at Los Angeles’ Kia Forum, Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena, and more before wrapping up in St. Paul, MN at Xcel Energy Center on August 2nd. The band are donating a portion of their ticket sales to organizations working in areas of essential community support, including Support & Feed and REVERB.
