When Paramore aren't performing with buds New Found Glory, collaborating with the Civil Wars and Zedd or breaking world records with creative music video concepts, they're touring. All the time. Do these guys ever take a break?

Today the band announced a new string of dates, this time an intimate U.S. tour alongside longtime friends Copeland. The Paramore: Writing the Future tour kicks off on April 27 in Atlanta and ends on May 25 in Portland, Oregon. Tickets go on sale at 10 A.M. Friday, January 30.

"It feels right to bring the Self-Titled era to a close. We've had a very personal and hugely triumphant journey with this one. What wouldn't feel right is saying goodbye to this time in the band's career and not celebrating it with our fans in some special way. So we've decided to do one last little run with it," the band wrote on Facebook. "Each night will be a little event, or as we said just a few seconds ago, a celebration. As we acknowledge the past few years (and more) of everything we've been through together, we're also looking forward together at all there is to come."

While you psych yourself up for the tour, go ahead and check out Fuse's hot shots from the band's first Madison Square Garden show. (Basically the complete opposite of "intimate.")
