Paramore have begun laying down the vocals for their fourth album.

The band, fronted by Hayley Williams, are currently working on their follow-up to 2009's 'Brand New Eyes' in LA with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen. Meldal-Johnsen is best known for his 10-year stint as Beck's bassist and recently co-produced M83's 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming' album.

Paramore's new album does not have a title yet, but earlier today (July 24), the band uploaded a photo of the microphone in their recording studio to Instagram alongside the caption: "First vocal tracks of album #4 ... Gonna have me a real good time!"

Paramore will return to Europe for an appearance at Belfast's Belsonic Festival on August 19. They will then headline an intimate gig at Edinburgh's Corn Exchange on August 21, before performing at Reading and Leeds festivals on August 24 and 25.

These will be Paramore's first UK shows since the departure of two founding members, guitarist Josh Farro and his drummer brother Zach, at the end of 2010. Last month (June), the band announced that former Nine Inch Nails drummer Ilan Rubin will be contributing drum parts to their new album.
