Pop Rock superstars “Paramore” were announced winners of the 2011 “Peoples Choice Award” for “Favourite Rock Band” in Los Angeles during the awards annual ceremony just last night.
They beat rigid competition from four other bands. These runners up were “Daughtry”, “Linkin Park”, “Maroon 5” and “Nickelback”.
Paramore have already put forward plans to craft a new album. On their official blog on the bands website, ‘Jeremy Davis’(Bass), detailed that “Taylor, Hayley and myself have already started putting together ideas for our new album and cannot wait to share them with you and we're looking forward to the new journey we are all about to begin together”. He then went on to comment that “I can reassure you that Paramore is here to stay!”
This news comes to us subsequent to a shocking track of events for the band over the past few weeks. Two of the bands founding and well identified members, brothers ‘Josh Farro’ and ‘Zac Farro’, quit the band in the last month of last year.
Paramore are set to tour between the 16th of February to the 4th of March, covering Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Columbia and Venezuela. To replace the members who have departed from the band, ‘Paramore’ have drafted in ‘Justin York’ on guitars and past Nine Inch Nails sticks-man ‘Josh Freese’ on drums for the time being.
‘Justin York’ is the brother of ‘Taylor York’, existing guitar player for “Paramore”. He has performed with the band in the past and so is no outsider to the task that he faces.
