    Hayley Williams of Paramore explained the meaning behind the band’s new album title, After Laughter, to iHeartRadio:

    After Laughter is about the look on people’s faces when they’re done laughing. If you watch somebody long enough, there’s always this look that comes across their face when they’re done smiling, and I always find it really fascinating to wonder what it is that brought them back to reality. So, that’s what After Laughter is.

    usually they stop laughing because they realize the joke doesn't warrant any more laughs

    I'll write you into all of my songs Supporter

    There's usually a moment after the laughter where I have this zen state of the comedown from the "Laughter High", where I feel calm and at ease, as well as realize the connection I have with the other people over the laughter is a different kind of connection. It's pretty interesting, and I really like the idea behind the project.
