PARAHOY! – which first set sail in 2014 with a star-studded line-up featuring Tegan & Sara, New Found Glory, and more – will include performances from an array of special guests, all personally chosen by Paramore, to be announced in the coming months. Other shipboard events will include Q&A sessions, theme nights, and of course, "Paraoke" with the GRAMMY® Award-winning band themselves.

In the meantime, Paramore has just embarked on a major US tour, set to travel the continent through May. The dates will also see the band appearing at an array of summer festivals, including West Palm Beach's SunFest, Memphis' Beale Street Music Festival, and Gulf Shore, Alabama's Hangout Music Festival.

Paramore recently received their first-ever GRAMMY® Award, with "Ain't It Fun," the RIAA platinum-certified, #1 hit single from 2013's blockbuster fourth studio album "PARAMORE," receiving the "Best Rock Song" trophy at the 57th Annual GRAMMY® Awards. "PARAMORE" made a chart-busting debut atop the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its April 2013 release – the 4x GRAMMY®-nominated band's first #1 album to date. In addition, "PARAMORE" scored an array of #1 debuts around the globe, marking Paramore's second consecutive chart-topper – following 2009's "brand new eyes" – in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and the United Kingdom, as well as its first to reach the top position in such countries as Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico.  "PARAMORE" showcased a string of smash singles, including two top 10, RIAA platinum-certified hits, "Still Into You" and the hugely successful "Ain't It Fun." The latter track proved Paramore's biggest single to date, ascending to #1 at Hot AC and Rock radio outlets nationwide, #2 at Top 40, as well as to the top 10 on Billboard's "Hot 100" – the band's first ever top 10 hit and their highest peaking song thus far.
