Paramore Hard Times lyrics, video and UK tour dates

Paramore released the video for their new single, Hard Times, on Wednesday and it’s a far more electro pop sound than fans are used to.

The single is taken from their newly announced album, After Laughter, which is their first releasing their self-titled album four years ago.

Hayley Williams takes centre stage in the Andrew Jfe-directed video that shares similarities with their new album cover.

After Laughter features original Paramore drummer Zac Farro and his bassist-playing brother Jeremy, who both quit the band in 2010.


Paramore will be returning to the UK this summer for a capsule tour:

  • Dublin (Olympia, June 15)
  • Belfast (Waterfront, June 16)
  • Manchester (O2 Apollo, June 18)
  • London (Royal Albert Hall, June 19)
  • Bristol (Colston Hall, June 21)
  • Edinburgh (Usher Hall, June 22)

Tickets for the shows will go on sale on Friday, April 28, at 9am and can be purchased from

After Laughter is available for pre-order ahead its release on May 12


Verse 1]
All that I want
Is to wake up fine
Tell me that I’m alright
That I ain’t gonna die
All that I want
Is a hole in the ground
You can tell me when it’s alright
For me to come out
