Fans have been waiting more than four years for a new collection of tunes from Hayley Williams and the guys. Released May 12, the band’s acclaimed album includes the songs “Hard Times” and “Told You So.”

Here’s how Pitchfork senior editor Ryan Dombal sums up After Laughter in a 7.5 review: “After years of merrily keeping the Paramore lights on, Hayley Williams considers her life and lets go of her grin on her latest album, a fizzy yet despondent piece of ’80s pop-rock.”

Tune in to ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” May 17 to see Paramore perform an outdoor mini-concert on the show. The band stops by CBS’s “The Late Late Show with James Cordon” to play “Told You So” on May 24.

The North American “Tour Two” is a counterpart to the run of European summer gigs dubbed “Tour One.”

The U.S./Canada fun starts Sept. 6 in Jacksonville, Fla., at the Moran Theatre. After that Paramore heads to Miami Beach; Orlando; Charlotte, N.C.; and Oxon Hill, Md. Best Coast joins the tour as support starting in Charlotte Sept. 11. 

AT&T is hosting a presale for its customers that begins May 18 at 10 a.m. A Citi cardmember presale starts May 20 at 10 a.m. via Citi’s Private Pass program.  Tickets go on sale to the general public May 24 at 10 a.m. All times local.
