Paramore stages another Riot

Pop-punk quintet Paramore continues to tear up the road behind its latest album, "Riot!," with a whole new slate of North American dates booked for the fall.

The Tennessee-based band will finish a run of West Coast radio festivals next week before heading to Japan and Australia for a handful of shows into early October, and will then return to North America for a headlining trek, which is scheduled to crisscross the US and stop by Toronto. The outing takes off Oct. 23 in Sayreville, NJ, and runs through a Nov. 28 finale in New York City.

The Starting Line will join Paramore on the tour with special guests The Almost and Set Your Goals each having a turn in the opening slot. North American dates are listed below.

"Riot!," Paramore's sophomore set on the Fueled by Ramen label, debuted at No. 20 on The Billboard 200 in June and recently jumped to No. 15. The album's first single, "Misery Business," is in the Top 10 at modern-rock radio and the video is making serious waves at MTV. The song and video are streaming at the band's MySpace page.

Fronted by 18-year-old Hayley Williams, Paramore has already been supporting the album all over the globe this year with tours of Japan, Australia, Europe and the US, including a mainstage slot on the Vans Warped Tour.

The group has been on many "bands to watch" lists since releasing its 2005 debut, "All We Know is Falling," which spawned the singles "Pressure" and "All We Know."
