Paramore have announced the release date for their first new single in five years. The group revealed on social media that they will release ‘This Is Why’ on 28th September.

News of the upcoming song is the latest chapter in the group’s long-awaited comeback. Paramore’s last full-length album was 2017’s After Laughter; the band’s last live show was a hometown gig in Nashville in September 2018.

Vocalist Hayley Williams has released two solo albums during Paramore’s downtime: 2020’s Petals for Armor and 2021’s Flowers for Vases / Descansos. Williams confirmed in January that Paramore had been in the studio recording their sixth album. The news was followed by Williams’ decision to launch the Everything Is Emo podcast, exploring the history of the punk rock subgenre, including her own career.

Earlier this year, Paramore announced their first tour in four years, with a run of US tour dates scheduled for October and November. Following the controversial decision by the US Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, the band announced that they would be donating a portion of profits from their upcoming tour to reproductive care services across America.

‘This Is Why’ is scheduled for release on Wednesday, 28th September.
