Those of you who heard Paramore‘s “Now” and immediately got excited at the prospect of hearing that flurry of percussion in a live setting, you’re in luck. The band will be hitting the road for their first North American tour since 2010, in support of their self-titled fourth album (out April 9). It’ll start in Houston on April 25, and they’ll make their way across the country throughout the spring for 12 shows, finishing in New York on May 16 (and Paramore promises even more dates will be announced soon).
They’ll be joined by openers Kitten, one of our favorite new acts of 2012, so you’ll want to make sure you get to these gigs early. Check out the first leg of dates below, and head here for all the tour details.
