Hit the jump for the full tracklist and to listen to "Choose Your Blade", one of the brand new tunes.

The new music video from the now trio Paramore is for the song Now! This is the debut tune from their new album of the same name.It may seem super violent initally with lots of crazy battle footage etc, but it does have a nice heartstrings moment at the end with a great little 'Love Wins' message. It does take a while to get over the lack of eyebrows in Hayleys new look though! Check it below...
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus have returned, and we're excited to unveil details on the pop rockers new EP, Et Tu, Brute?.
