Paramore's Hayley Williams has taken to Instagram to share some thanks and other thoughts following the release of the band's new album, After Laughter. She praises guitarist Taylor York and discusses the return of Zac Farro to the group.

Interestingly, Williams also says Paramore wanted the launch of the album to "look different" to previous campaigns with the focus being on "friendship and art and our own enjoyment of the process." Check out the lengthy set of notes via Instagram above.

Last month Paramore announced a tour of Europe and North America. The tour will begin with a performance in Dublin, Ireland on June 15, and will feature dates across Europe, before heading back to the U.S. for shows in July, August, and September. The band has also confirmed details of its third Parahoy! Festival cruise, which is scheduled to take place in April 2018.
