Record Store Day Announces Paramore As 2024 Ambassadors

Paramore’s appointment as Record Store Day ambassadors marks a significant moment for both the band and the annual event celebrating independent record stores, this year happening on April 20, 2024. With their energetic blend of pop-punk and alternative rock, Paramore has captivated audiences worldwide, earning critical acclaim and a dedicated fanbase. As ambassadors, they symbolize the spirit of grassroots music culture and the importance of supporting local record stores. Their involvement underscores the enduring relevance of physical music formats and the communal experience of browsing through vinyl records and discovering new music. Paramore’s commitment to the music community aligns perfectly with the ethos of Record Store Day, making them ideal ambassadors to champion the cause of independent music retailers and celebrate the unique culture they foster.

The band writes, “After a long career in the music industry we have decided to announce that… we are going to continue to have a long career in the music industry (sorry for any inconvenience).

Our first order of business as a freshly independent Paramore is to shine a light on independent record stores— a vital part of our journey from music obsessed school friends to professional music makers.

With that being said, we are humbled to be your Ambassadors for Record Store Day 2024. The timing feels kismet.

The discovery of music was always meant to be romantic. Indie record shops are some of the only spaces we’ve got that offer a tangible, tactile experience of music discovery.

In this world that feels more disconnected and hostile than ever, it feels important to remain in touch (literally) with what inspires us, empowers us, or simply brings us joy.

Thankfully, for all our sakes, there still survives among the chaos, the purity and radical simplicity of a great record store.

Independently yours,
