I’m trying to understand how it could be that 3 years have gone by since we wrote and recorded the Self-Titled album. How is it that we are near the end of our time with this album? I remember at the beginning of 2006, some of our team started to ask what we were thinking about the next album and if we’d begun writing what would later become “RIOT!”. I’ll never forget that conversation and how sad it made me. Things had only begun to heat up for us with “AWKIF” and I was feeling like it still had a ton of life in it.
It is SO cool to be able to say we won a Grammy for being 100% ourselves. A few kids from a relatively small music scene. Nothing feels cooler than still getting support from the peers/heroes we grew up with. While being celebrated by peers/heroes we never imagined would even know we exist! From the punk rock scene to radio to MTV to The GRAMMYs ... We have remained true to Pmore. I'm so proud.
Embarrassingly, it’s been a little while since the last time I did any sort of bloggin’ whatsoever. Now, I find myself near the very end of a long year having said nearly nothing about it! What a year it’s been for Paramore. Taylor and Jeremy and I are so thankful, so exhausted, and so satisfied.
Writing from my bunk to let you know that my doctor and my vocal coach have told me I can't play tonight either. I have a chest infection and ... Something called "exhaustion". Ha.
Words in this tiny little message cannot begin to express my frustration, sadness, and overall loopiness (the latter is likely just from the cortisone and antibiotics...ugh.)
Corpus Christi, you've been on my mind since I woke up this afternoon and Dallas, you'll be on my mind the rest of the night. I absolutely hate canceling anything. Admitting defeat is a tough thing for this gal.
'Escape Route' was one of the first songs we started writing but the last song we actually finished. It always had the "classic" Paramore guitar sound... With the opening riff and everything. We really felt a lot of pressure in the beginning of the whole process to write a song like this one... Then through finishing the album realized that that was not the right way to go about it. We all adore this song. We just felt like it might need to live in it's own space separated a little from the newer sounds we're toying with.
