Paramore to reissue Riot! on silver vinyl for Fueled By Ramen’s 25th anniversary
As Fueled By Ramen celebrate their 25th anniversary, Paramore have announced a very special Riot! reissue as they join in with the label’s festivities.
Hayley Williams has announced that the band will be re-releasing their iconic 2007 second album Riot! – the follow-up to 2005 debut All We Know Is Falling – on silver vinyl, as well as asking fans to help design some Paramore merch to go alongside the drop.
“For Fueled By Ramen’s 25th anniversary, Paramore are releasing a special silver vinyl edition of Riot!” the vocalist says in a video on Twitter. “And around the re-issue’s release, which will be in May, we wanted to do something really special with you because, you know, it’s been a minute. It’s been a while.
“So, we’re partnering – again – with our friends at Creative Allies; we did a contest with them back in 2013… that’s almost a decade ago, what?! And, basically, you go to paramore.net/creativeallies, submit your design, make it Riot! related, it could be lyrics, it could be anything you want, and the winner will have a design reproduced in the web store, and you’re going to win $500.”
The full description on Creative Allies’ website explains: “Creative Allies is partnering with Paramore again to host a fan art design contest. We worked with them in 2013 for the debut of their self titled album Paramore. You can check out that contest here! This art will be used for merchandise sold on their web store.
“Riot! is the second studio album by Paramore. It was released in the United States on June 12, 2007 and Paramore wants to do something special for the album’s re-release on vinyl coming this May. Paramore’s Riot! Album gave us some amazing tracks such as Misery Business and CrushCrushCrush and we need some really great art to match all of the fantastic songs on this album.
“The band will pick their favorite design and the grand prize winner will get $500. Please send any questions to [email protected]”
