Paramore have finished recording their fourth album.

The pop punk band's frontwoman Hayley Willams let fans know the good news via Twitter, writing:

The follow-up to 2009's 'Brand New Eyes' is set for release next year.

Williams recently said the band's new album is like "an answered prayer". The singer tweeted her comment, writing: "So many exciting things happening in the studio today I just wanna break stuff in the best way possible. This album is an answered prayer."

The band were working on the album in Los Angeles with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen. Meldal-Johnsen is best known for his 10-year stint as Beck's bassist. He also recently co-produced M83's 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming'.

The band have had tumultuous few years after two founding members, guitarist Josh Farro and his drummer brother Zach, departed from the group at the end of 2010.

In September the former Paramore sticksman opened up to NME about his reasons for leaving the band and strongly denied that he departed just because his brother Josh decided to go.
