Paramore have posted an update about the band’s new* album.

Hayley Williams (vocalist) posted the touching album update via the band’s official Instagram account – read her post in full 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”

*Follow-up to 2013 self-titled album – which was – in our point of view – awesome.
