Paramore have begun writing for the followup to last year’s platinum-certified Riot!.

Frontwoman Hayley Williams cited the "tough year" as influencing the writing.

"With the way I write, I feel like I write better from those kinds of intense struggles," she said. "I pull a lot from those experiences. We’ve all learned a lot about friendship, we’ve learned a lot about ourselves, so I’m really excited to see how it turns out."

She also claims the songs will be energetic, so, there’s that.

The album may be out by summer 2009 on Fueled By Ramen.
