Paramore's Hayley Williams Has Food On The Brain

Frontwoman reveals a working title for one of the band's new songs: 'Sumo Sandwich.'

Paramore have a list of priorities — demoing their new record, rehearsing for their upcoming tour with No Doubt and, uh, finding something to eat.

In a blog post on the band's official site, frontwoman Hayley Williams writes about the progress of all three ... with a special focus on the status of Paramore's much-anticipated new album and her gustatory struggles.

"We decided not to go to our practice space today. Each of us are at our respective homes writing our own stuff to bring to practice tomorrow. Doubtful we'll all be successful," she wrote. "I'm still finishing lyrics to some of the music demos we've already recorded. Some perdy good shtuff here!

"I'm stuck here at home," she continued. "There's nothing to eat here but one pack of ramen. No, really."

Cue the Fueled By Ramen puns. Since the beginning of the year, Williams and Paramore have been working on the follow-up to Riot! in their home state of Tennessee. They've been keeping fans updated on their progress via photos on their site (and the occasional blog), which show them rehearsing new tunes.

In one post, Williams refers to one new song as carrying the working title "Sumo Sandwich" (she really does have food on the brain).

The stated plan is to record the new album in Nashville, though it's not known just who will produce it. A spokesperson for Fueled By Ramen/ Atlantic Records told MTV News that the band intend to have the new album in stores after they wrap their tour with No Doubt, which kicks off in May.
