New single by Paramore: "Ignorance"

I think it is safe to say that we are all "RIOT"ed out.

In 2007, Paramore proved itself as a band not to be reckoned with, putting out single after single, and continually making it to the top of the charts with songs like "Misery Business," "Crush Crush Crush" and "Decode," which hit the radio and moved into the homes and iPods of teens all over the world.

If your a Paramore fan, I have some good news. The band released a new single, "Ignorance," on July 6. The song is more of a push towards punk-rock than previous Paramore albums. Frontwoman Hayley Williams recently told a journalist from Entertainment Weekly's Music Mix blog, "the album is really soley based on friendship and betrayal, losing people you thought would be there forever, and then maybe either finding them again or not finding them again."

These ideas are more than apparent in "Ignorance." The new single illustrates a more confident Paramore, perhaps due to their recent flush of fame. Could this tune be aimed at ex-band members or maybe even ex-boyfriends? We may not ever know, but listening to it brings us closer to Hayley, in a way. "Ignorance" is spunky and catchy — watch out, it could get stuck in your head for weeks after listening. The single is available on iTunes or at Paramore's official website. The new album, Brand New Eyes, will hit stores September 29. You can pre-order it now, also on their website. (Check out the new single performed live after the jump.)
