Are Paramore back? Pop-punk icons seem to hint that their comeback has started on social media

The Hard Times (without Paramore) are nearly over.

Paramore have appeared to confirm that their hiatus is finally over, and a comeback has begun. 

The band - comprised of Hayley Williams, Zac Farro and Taylor York - teased earlier this year that they were "treading uncharted waters" with their upcoming sixth album, slated to be their first long-player release since 2017. 

While we haven't had any concrete updates aside from the announcement of a US tour for later in the year, the social media platforms for the individual band members have now been updated with some brand new photos, hinting that some very good news could be on the horizon for fans. 

Each picture sees Williams, Farro and York with their faces pressed against some condensed glass, all-in-all it's very much a step away from the bright, New-Wave inspired visuals for their last album together, After Laughter.

Paramore took a break from recording as a band following the release of 2017's alt-pop inspired After Laughter, which became their third UK Top 10 album, peaking at Number 4.

Hayley Williams then branched off to start her long-awaited solo career, releasing two connected albums; Petals For Armor (which also peaked at Number 4 on the Official Albums Chart in 2020) and sister-record Flowers For Vases/Descansos. 

But while Paramore haven't released music in half a decade, their influence in music hasn't been forgotten; in fact, he band have been named as direct inspiration for the current 'emo' revival in rock music.

Hayley was even given a retrospective co-writer credit on Olivia Rodrigo's Number 1 single Good 4 U, which was often compared to Paramore's breakthrough single, Misery Business.

In total, Paramore have two UK Number 1 albums - 2009's Brand New Eyes and 2013's self-titled third album. Read a countdown of Hayley Williams and Paramore's Top 10 biggest songs on the UK's Official Charts here.
