It's officially time for a ParaFamily reunion. Paramore are back and the band have begun teasing their new era on Instagram.
Ever since Paramore announced that they would be taking a break as a group in 2019, fans have been desperate for Hayley Williams, Zac Farro and Taylor York to reunite. Since then, Hayley has dropped two critically-acclaimed solo studio albums, expanded her Good Dye Young brand and taken time to enjoy Zac and Taylor's company as friends outside of music.

In 2021, Hayley let slip that the band had started work on their sixth album and now it looks like they're ready to release it.
When are Paramore releasing new music?
Yesterday (Sep 7), fans spotted that Paramore had archived all but two of their posts on Instagram. The only posts left now are a list of their 2022 tour dates and a statement in which they call out the Supreme Court for overturning Roe vs. Wade, and reveal that a portion of all of their 2022 tour ticket purchases will now be donated to abortion rights charities.
At the same time, Hayley, Zac and Taylor changed their profile pictures on their solo Instagram pages to previously unseen images in which each of their faces is pressed against a glass surface. As it stands, the band are yet to release any more information but, given that many artists do this, fans have taken this as confirmation that new music is imminent.
Reacting to the news, one fan tweeted: "after 4 fucking long years, you don't understand how much paramore fans need this". Another added: "depression is postponed paramore is pressing their faces against glass".
Someone else also tweeted: 'i sincerely apologize to all my followers for the person im about to become when paramore release their comeback".

As for what fans can expect from Paramore's sixth album, Hayley has hinted that it will be a lot more rock-leaning than After Laughter was. Speaking to Rolling Stone earlier this year, Hayley said that there will be "more emphasis back on the guitar" and Zac is going "as animal as he wants with drum takes."
The band are yet to announce any release dates for music but fans are speculating that an album or single could drop as soon as tomorrow. With the band commencing their tour on October 2nd, it seems likely that they will release the new project very soon.
