Paramore are currently embarked on their annual Parahoy! cruise, where the pop-punk prodigies are joined by some of their band BFFS for a little fun in the sun. At last night's performance, however, things got pretty serious. Frontwoman Hayley Williams made sure to shout out her band's former members and give some details on the Paramore's upcoming follow-up to its 2013 self-titled album.

She said of her former band mates (via Billboard):

“It is an honor to play music with all the people that are here. It’s been an honor to play music with Josh [Farro], with Zac [Farro], with Jeremy [Davis], everyone that’s ever played with Paramore. It’s such an honor, to have friendship and music rolled into one thing… only god can do that. I’m just glad it’s not over because I want to keep doing it.”

As for the band's upcoming (and highly anticipated!) album, Williams added:

“We’ve been—to be honest—a lot slower than I thought we would be. Sometimes life happens…I took a Twitter break. It was great; you should try it some time. We’re gonna go on and make a record for ya…We’ll keep you posted.”
