April 8th, 2013

If we had to describe Tom Doyle, we probably would come up with a better description of him than “the fastest phone user in the world”. But he was quick enough to snag a ticket for Paramore’s super-exclusive sold-out-in-seconds micro-show at the Highbury Garage, where the band (who let’s be honest, normally play to thousands) showcased their 2013 material – and some old classics – to a crowd of less than 600 people.

Six Things we learned when we saw Paramore play the Highbury Garage:

Getting the basic facts out of the way, it’s been four years since the last album from Paramore. Four years that has also seen the departure of their key songwriting component, the Farro brothers, and four years in which Paramore have become by far and away the most plagiarized band within contemporary rock.

There is much to be said for judging art independently of reputation, the blind tasting that lets you make your decisions based on what is there, not what your expectation teaches you to pre-empt. It is both a curse and a blessing for a long-lived band with a powerful legacy that people will rarely asses their latest offering on it’s own merit, it will invariably be seen as part of and subsumed into an epoch, compared as ‘not as good as xxx’ or ‘better than the last album xxx’. More or less every review you will read of Shai Hulud’s new albumwill make mention of their truly brilliant back catalogue, their position as one of the defining melodic metallic hardcore bands of the last fifteen years, and even the fact that one of New Found Glory is backing doing vocals for them.

So let’s not do any of that – let’s listen to Shai Hulud like they are fresh faced kids out promoting their first record; it’ll be more fun that way.

Contrary to popular belief, Hayley Williams’ incomprehensibly cringe-inducing appearance on the latest Set Your Goals album did not bring about the end of music. We’re all still here, the hits keep on coming, and a few months on from Ms Williams last indiscretion we have a new Paramore album to digest.

Hayley Williams from Paramore said so on the band’s LiveJournal:

“I had no idea I was engaged! I’m so happy for myself! In case you guys have seen the post floating around the interweb, I just wanted to state for the record that Chad and I are not engaged. I feel so ridiculous posting about this… but hopefully I’m posting enough in advance that most of you haven’t even heard all this, yet… so, now you’ve heard it here… the rumors are not true.”
