paramore.jpgFueled By Ramen recording group Paramore has revealed details of their upcoming live schedule.   The Grammy-nominated punk-pop quartet will embark on “The Final RIOT! — Paramore Summer Tour ’08,” beginning on July 28th at Reno, Nevada’s Grand Sierra Theatre.  

Accompanying Paramore on the road will be a star-studded lineup featuring such artists as Jack’s Mannequin, Fueled By Ramen’s own Phantom Planet, and Paper Route.   “The Final RIOT! — Paramore Summer Tour ’08” will travel North America through an August 30th finale at the Chevrolet Theatre in Wallingford, Connecticut (see attached itinerary).  

In addition to “The Final RIOT! — Paramore Summer Tour ’08,” the Tennessee-based band will also appear at a number of upcoming summer festivals, including Tulsa’s DFest Music Conference & Festival on July 25th; Channel 93.3’s Big Gig at Englewood, Colorado’s Fiddlers Green Amphitheatre on July 26th; the Virgin Festival 2008 at Baltimore’s Pimlico Race Course on August 10th; and Seattle’s annual Bumbershoot Festival on September 1st.   Paramore will also find time in their jam-packed schedule to join John Mayer for two very special dates, details of which will be announced shortly.

Pre-sale ticketing for the headline dates will be made available to members of the Official Paramore Fan Club ( on Wednesday, May 28th.   All remaining tickets will then be released to the general public, beginning Friday, May 30th.

Paramore has traveled nearly non-stop since the release of last year’s RIAA gold-certified second album, “RIOT!”   The Tennessee-based band has just wrapped up its spring co-headline itinerary with Jimmy Eat World, having also found time for festival appearances such as the Bamboozle and Bamboozle Left, as well as the UK’s annual Give It A Name.   In June, they will return to Europe for a number of headline dates and further festival slots, including such world-renowned gatherings as Germany’s Rock am Ring and Sweden’s Hultsfred Festival.   The band’s summer schedule will officially begin on June 30th with Milwaukee’s yearly Summerfest celebrations.   That will be followed by an eagerly awaited slate of mainstage appearances on the upcoming Vans Warped Tour (July 1 — 6), the band’s fourth consecutive year on the tour.  

“RIOT!” made an explosive chart entry upon its June 2007 release.   Boasting two top 5 Modern Rock radio hits in “Misery Business” and “Crushcrushcrush,” the album quickly went on to achieve RIAA gold certification, with sales now over 880,000.   An array of accolades followed, including a “Best New Artist” nod at this year’s 50th Annual Grammy Awards and “Band of the Year” honors from Alternative Press.

“That’s What You Get,” the album’s latest single, is currently impacting at multi-format radio outlets nationwide, including Top 40, Modern Rock, and Hot AC.   The track’s companion video — directed by Marcos Siega (blink-182, All-American Rejects, Weezer) — is now in rotation at MTV2, MTV Hits, Music Choice and FUSE, having recently hit #1 on the iTunes Store’s “Alternative Video” chart.
