In recent months, the enigmatic silence of Paramore has sparked widespread speculation about the band’s future. However, they have finally broken their silence (Read Below) confirming their ongoing commitment to the music industry and announcing their newfound independence as recording artists. This significant update came through an Instagram post, where the band also expressed their pride in being appointed as the 2024 Record Store Day Ambassadors.
Paramore Break Their Silence
Paramore’s statement on Instagram was a two-part revelation. The first part featured a graphic announcing them as the 2024 Record Store Day Ambassadors, a role they described as an honor.
The subsequent slide contained a more detailed statement saying:
Primordial General Mayhem

After a long career in the music industry, we have decided to announce that we are going to continue to have a long career in the music industry (sorry for any inconvenience).
Our first order of business as a freshly independent Paramore is to shine a light on independent records stores – a vital part of our journey from music obsessed school friends to professional music makers.
With that being said, we are humbled to be your ambassadors for Record Store Day 2024. The timing feels kismet.
The discovery of music was always meant to be romantic. Indie record shops are some of the only spaces we’ve got that offer a tangible, tactile experience of music discovery.
In this world that feels more disconnected and hostile than ever, it feels important to remain in touch (literally) with what inspires us, empowers us, or simply brings us joy.
Thankfully, for all our sakes, there still survives among the chaos, the purity and radical simplicity of a great record store.
Addressing Rumors and Concerns About Paramore’s Future
In December, an excerpt from a cryptic interview suggested uncertainty about the band’s future. However, a more in-depth look at the interview revealed a more optimistic outlook. “The only thing that matters is we will still get to be each other’s community,” said Williams, with Farro adding, “I just hope we can keep building the Paramore empire and then rule the world.”
Following this, the band’s social media accounts were wiped clean, and their website was deleted, fueling fan confusion. They also withdrew from the Alter Ego radio festival in Los Angeles and canceled three more festival appearances. However, a day after their Alter Ego cancellation, it was reported that their absence was due to the end of their contract with Atlantic Records, leading them to become free agents.
Paramore’s Return to Social Media and Future Plans
Paramore resurfaced on social media in early January, teasing their involvement in a Talking Heads tribute album and celebrating their first Grammy wins. Their Record Store Day post was their first communication addressing their future since the December social media blackout.
Despite withdrawing from several early 2024 concerts, Paramore’s future includes joining Taylor Swift on her European tour starting in May, where they will be the primary support.
