The “Paramore: Writing The Future” tour follows the arrival of Paramore: Self-Titled Deluxe.  Living up to the title, the album is an expanded new digital edition of 2013’s release.  The deluxe version includes previously unreleased new material and a new recording of “Hate To See Your Heart Break” featuring former Civil Wars singer Joy Williams joining Hayley Williams on vocals. 

Other goodies on the deluxe release include the 2012 demo of “Tell Me It’s Okay,” bonus tracks “Escape Route” and “Native Tongue” and eight tracks culled from the band’s 2014 performance at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

“It feels right to bring the Self-Titled era to a close,” Williams said.  “We’ve had a very personal and hugely triumphant journey with this one.  What wouldn’t feel right is saying goodbye to this time in the band’s career and not celebrating it with our fans in some special way.  So we’ve decided to do one last little run with it.  Smaller shows, beautiful theaters … and we’re not calling it a tour, by the way.  Each night will be a little event, or as we said just a few seconds ago, a celebration.”
