On Paramore's new single "Now," singer Hayley Williams declares, “If there’s a future, we want it now!” Well, that future apparently consists of touring, touring and more touring!

The pop-punk outfit already have international tour dates set for 2013, but the band just announced a dozen shows in North America this spring.

The North American leg kicks off in Houston on April 25 and wraps less than a month later in New York on May 16. Electronica rockers Kitten will open all shows. 

The announcement adds to an already busy 2013 for Paramore. They'll hit Asia and Australia in February and March, then, following their self-titled new album's April 9 release, will tour the states and head out to Germany and Austria in June.

BUT if Paramore isn't rocking your town with this tour, don't fret. The band's fire-haired lead singer tweets, "Guys, this quick run around the US is just the 1st of sooo many tours for our new album! Don't get yer panties all bunched up for nothin'." Phew.
