Hayley posted a new photo and message to Paramore’s official Instagram account. She wrote about writing new music for the fifth album, you can read her message below.
about a year ago, we began writing & demoing songs for #5
following up our self-titled album didn’t seem like it was going to be an easy task and, unsurprisingly, it was not. the problem about comparing yourself to… yourself… is that even though it’s better than looking elsewhere, you’re still looking in the ?wrong? direction. for me, it wasn’t until i trusted that the past is finished with me that i could go looking for what’s next. our pasts can be a great comforter, or a horror movie; a noose, or a shield… but it is “past” for a reason. after a rest, we have to go looking for what’s supposed to come after that. – h
Hayley updated her Intagram profile photo, biography and then posted three white photos without any descriptions. She’s also only following two accounts at the moment: Paramore’s and Good Dye Young’s.
Her bio now says “recovering realist & singer of the American genre-neutral band Paramore | founder/CEO of goodDYEyoung.”
What does all this mean and does it have something to do with the upcoming Paramore album? We have to wait and see!
As part of their documentary series ‘Culture At Risk’ PBS News Hour reported of downtown Nashville being a backbone of the nation’s music industry for years and how the increasing demand for new apartments and office buildings is threatening its historic music spaces.
In this short video of the documentary Taylor is talking about the RCA Studio A and we can also see Paramore working on their new album at the studio!

We are approaching the end of another year. 2016 has been weird, and a lot of stuff has happened. Some of it has been negative, some of it has been positive. But we at Paramore Online want to believe that there is more good in this world, than bad.
This December, we want to invite you to join us on our mission to make as many people smile as possible. There are many things we have no control over, but we do have control over our own actions, and how we treat other people. The Paramore family is MASSIVE, there are so many of us in so many different countries! Paramore has always stressed the importance of kindness and positivity. We want to honor that message by raffling off a gift pack as a random act of kindness to YOU! Read on…
We invite you to spread positivity with us by doing good deeds, acts of kindness. Your good deed can be anything, here are just a few examples:
- Sending a positive text to a friend
- Shoveling snow for your neighbor
- Donating money to a charity of your choice
- Taking your old clothes to a flea market that will donate the proceeds to different charities
- Volunteering to babysit or take someone’s dog out
- Baking a pie for someone
- Reading a story for your younger sibling
- Making a Blessing Bag
- Volunteering at the local animal shelter
- Keeping company for those who are lonely

Hayley’s hair dye company, goodDYEyoung, is participating in Black Friday in a cool, different way. Instead of doing usual Black Friday sales, the company wants to give back and help other people. Starting today (through December 20th), goodDYEyoung will be donating $1 from every product sold towards a non-profit organization that represents a cause that is dear to the company.
By purchasing one or more of their dyes, or some of their merch, you will donate a dollar towards a good cause! Great, huh?
Since our launch, we at goodDYEyoung have been blown away by the many inspiring people who make up this community! Together, we're creating an all-inclusive counter culture that inspires creativity. . From Black Friday until December 20th, we will donate $1 from every product sold to a non-profit organization. The organizations we have selected represent communities and causes we care deeply about. . Please join us in spreading inclusiveness — shop consciously :: dye boldly!
We’ve been getting a lot of questions regarding Paramore’s fanmail address. The band does not have a PO box, but you can send mail to their record label in New York.
We do not guarantee that you will get anything back from the band or that the band sees any of it, but you can always try! Make sure to include a self-addressed, self-stamped envelope and international reply coupons (IRC), or if you live in the US, just a regular stamp will do. This MIGHT increase your chances of getting something back. The band appreciates fanmail, but due to their busy schedules, they might not have the chance to reply.
Use the following address to send Paramore fanmail:
Fueled By Ramen
New York NY 10019
Please know all the mail gets screened before it’s passed onto Paramore so keep it appropriate!
