Time Out Says
Paramore returns in support of, yes, Paramore, its first LP sans founding members Josh and Zac Farro. Superfans might be bummed, but for the rest of us, the heart and soul of this Tennessee emo-pop powerhouse will always be the mammoth-lunged Hayley Williams, who’s stayed firmly put in her starring role. When it comes to arena-size, angst-gone-bubblegum anthems, few contemporay acts do it better. Also on board are Metric—the rousing synth-rock act led by former Broken Social Scenester Emily Haines—and Hellogoodbye, a California crew that mashes up saccharine emo with artful power pop.
