Paramore are back with “Hard Times” after our hard time waiting.
The band released “Hard Times” after announcing their latest LP After Laughter. The album, due to be released on May 12, would be the first one in four years for the band who was on the verge of indefinitely breaking up. Hailey Williams, Paramore’s lead singer, revealed how the band was reaching their last days before this album but said they managed to work it out.
“This is what you go through hard times for, so you can have these moments where you’re proud of yourself, proud of your choices and your friends”
“Hard Times” dropped on April 19 as the lead single of the album with a video directed by Andrew Joffe. Following the band’s wishes, Joffe gave the visual an “80s vibe” with hand-drawn animations and vibrant colors.
