More on Paramore, Courtesy of Live Nation:
Paramore – 4x GRAMMY® nominees and winner of the “Best Rock Song” trophy at the 57th Annual GRAMMY® Awards – have long established themselves as international rock superstars. Their new album, After Laughter, hit number one on Billboard’s U.S. Top Alternative Albums chart and the U.S. Top Rock Albums chart. Their previous self-titled album Paramore also made a chart topping debut atop the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its release marking Paramore’s first #1 album to date and featured two 2x RIAA platinum-certified hits, the top 10 “Still Into You” and the #1 smash, “Ain’t It Fun.”
Paramore has had a truly remarkable run of RIAA certified albums and singles since coming together in Nashville in 2004, from 2005’s gold-certified debut, All We Know is Falling, and 2007’s 2x platinum-certified breakthrough, Riot! (with its 3x platinum-certified hit, “Misery Business,” as well as the platinum-certified singles “crushcrushcrush” and “That’s What You Get”) to 2008’s worldwide platinum Decode (from Chop Shop/Atlantic’s chart-topping Twilight – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) and 2009’s platinum-certified brand new eyes and its GRAMMY®-nominated smash, “The Only Exception.”
Long regarded as an exhilarating live act, Paramore has spent much of the past decade-plus on the road, with highlights including sold out headline arena tours and show-stealing festival sets around the globe. Paramore has consistently drawn both critical acclaim as well as a wide ranging list of international honors and accolades, including a GRAMMY® Award, two People’s Choice Awards, three NME Awards, three MTV Video Music Award nominations, and much much more.
About Foster The People, Courtesy of Live Nation:
Founded in 2009, Foster the People achieved success with the 2011 release of its debut album Torches, which has sold nearly two million albums and over nine million singles worldwide. Torches features the #1 hit single “Pumped Up Kicks,” which was declared “the year’s anthem” by SPIN. Foster the People garnered three Grammy nominations for its monumental debut, including Best Alternative Album, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Pumped Up Kicks” and Best Short Form Music Video for “Houdini.”
Supermodel was the second full-length record from Foster the People. Influenced by frontman Mark Foster’s world travels and shifting perspective, the album was recorded in studios around the world and features fan favorites including “Coming of Age” and “Best Friend.” The band’s third and latest album Sacred Hearts Club, released in July 2017, is a 12-track effort that joyously flexes the group’s creative powers, fusing neo-psychedelia, punk, funk, electronic, dance and hip hop. Foster points to the polarized global climate as being a catalyst towards a more thoughtful approach on the album, inspiring them to make something that was joyful and unifying. The band’s current single “Sit Next To Me” was described as “pure shimmering pop” by the Associated Press, hit Top 5 at Alternative Radio and recently debuted on the Top 40 airplay chart.
