Fueled By Ramen recording group Paramore is celebrating the release of their acclaimed fifth studio album with a wide-ranging storm of international activity. The GRAMMY® Award-winning band’s first new album in more than four years, AFTER LAUGHTER is available now at all retailers and streaming services. AFTER LAUGHTER includes two recently released songs, “Hard Times” and “Told You So.” The official “Hard Times” companion video is fast proving a sensation, earning more than 25 million individual views at YouTube alone in its first month of release. In addition, the colorful “Told You So” companion video – directed by Aaron Joseph and Paramore’s own Zac Farro – has drawn over 7 million views in just two weeks via Fueled By Ramen’s official YouTube channel.
The band has also just announced plans for the third installment of their hugely popular PARAHOY! vacation experience, an interactive four-day festival at sea presented in partnership with Sixthman Productions and Norwegian Cruise Lines. The cruise – a full charter aboard the spectacular Norwegian Jade – will feature a specially selected schedule of bands, activities, and truly unique Paramore live performances. PARAHOY! sails roundtrip from Miami, Florida to Nassau, Bahamas from April 6th through 10th, 2018. For complete information, please visit www.parahoy.com.
AFTER LAUGHTER was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A – Paramore’s first time recording in their beloved hometown. Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen and Paramore’s own Taylor York, the album also marks the return of original Paramore member Zac Farro. The announcement of AFTER LAUGHTER was followed by a wide range of media coverage, with highlights including a New York Times feature as well as an extensive two-part interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe. The album has already begun earning rapturous critical attention, with Billboard declaring “Hard Times” to be “an addictive, Talking Heads-inspired jam that sounds like it could follow “Ain’t It Fun” as a Hot 100 smash,” and Rolling Stone praising “Told You So” as “polyrhythmic funk-pop.” Perhaps Variety said it best: “Paramore has never sounded — or looked — more defiantly joyous… AFTER LAUGHTER sounds like it’s about when life kicks you in the gonads. Instead of crying about it, hopefully Paramore will come back fighting and chop life’s head clean off.”
Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong discussed his mindset during his 2012 cocaine binge in a new Q Magazine interview.
“The thing about someone who’s losing their mind is that they don’t know they’re losing their mind. I thought my life was completely normal. And it wasn’t. I was on drugs! And people aren’t acting rationally when they’re on drugs. So I had to take care of myself. I had to kick that, and I did.”
He also criticized the 2012 trilogy albums, “Those records have absolutely no direction to them. It was about being prolific for the sake of it. So we were just going and going.”
He also said Green Day’s new album Revolution Radio is not an ‘angry’ album, “No. It’s inspired by confusion and just trying to make some sense of where you stand in the world there’s a lot of chaos going on. That’s a big theme through all of Green Day’s history – feeling lost.”
Hi! It was awesome 😀 I encourage you to watch my video 🙂
(Sorry for my English)
This is Green Day performing their song “Basket Case”, one of their classic from the 90s, which came out on “Dookie” in 1994, live at the Global Citizien Festival in New York City.
This show was a part of the Revolution Radio tour.

Don’t own just sharing experience
First ever live performance of the song.
Green Day are touring Australia right now so I thought I would chuck this one together before heading to see them next week in Sydney!

You’ll have to forgive the poor camerawork, it’s very difficult to hold the camera perfectly still while zoomed in that far.
