(1/23/15) If it seems like Paramore haven’t let up in the last two years, well, that’s because they haven’t.

The band has stated that its next run of shows won’t necessarily be a tour, but a “little event” celebrating all that it has accomplished since releasing Paramore in April of 2013. Since that time, the group has seen lead singles “Still Into You” and “Ain’t It Fun” skyrocket to the top of the Billboard Top 100. The self-titled album has sold 106,000 copies in its first week alone and debuted at #1 on the U.S. Charts, making it Paramore’s first record to ever accomplish such a feat.
