Paramore vs. Fall Out Boy: Which Band’s Return Has You Most Excited? – Readers Poll
It seemed like Paramore fans were waiting forever for new music from the female-fronted band, and that Fall Out Boy fans might never get the chance to see see their beloved band perform as one again. But these pop-punk fans needn’t worry, as both of the groups are back in action, with new albums on the way and a bunch of tour dates scheduled for 2013.
Following Paramore’s release of their single ‘Now‘ and their subsequent video (which is slated to drop any day now), and Fall Out Boy’s ‘My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)‘ making its way onto the airwaves and your YouTube players (the 2 Chainz version at least!), which band’s musical return has you the most excited?
Fast forward through the exit of two band members and four years without any new tunes (save for a few random releases here and there, like the 2011 ‘Transformers’ track ‘Monster’), and Paramore are gearing up for the release of their fourth full-length album, the eponymous ‘Paramore,’ on April 9, 2013. The trio, consisting of Hayley Williams, Jeremy Davis and Taylor York, has dropped their first single ‘Now,’ and has confirmed tour dates for Spring 2013.
On the other hand, OG long song name hit makers (Taylor Swift, you have nothing on these guys) Fall Out Boy announced that their indefinite hiatus (finally!) was coming to a close. The ‘This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race’ foursome confirmed their LP ‘Save Rock and Roll’ would see the light of day this year, and Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley are hitting the road in May for their Save Rock and Roll Tour. They’ve already released their first wordy single, ‘My Songs Know…,’ and an accompanying video featuring ‘No Lie’ rapper 2 Chainz.
