Paramore has announced a North American tour in support of their newly-released album, This Is Why.

The This Is Why tour comes after the band took a nearly five-year break from releasing music and performing. The trio made their return to touring last fall with a run of smaller North American shows.

The band has gone through a host of lineup changes over the years, but the current iteration consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams, guitarist Taylor York and drummer Zac Farro.

The concert dates start on May 23 in Charlotte, North Carolina, and will see the band travel to New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Toronto, and Austin.

The tour features several different opening acts, including Bloc Party, Foals, The Linda Lindas and Genesis Owusu.

A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to the non-profit organizations Support + Feed and Reverb.
