Each year, Record Store Day announces an ambassador (or ambassadors) to represent the annual event celebrating indie record stores. This year, the honor is bestowed upon Paramore.

The rock group, which formed 20 years ago in Franklin, now stands among former RSD ambassadors such as Taylor Swift, Pearl Jam, and Jack White.

“Our first order of business as a freshly independent Paramore is to shine a light on independent record stores, a vital part of our journey from music obsessed school friends to professional music makers,” the band said in a statement.

If you can’t wait for this year’s Record Store Day on Saturday, April 20, stop by Grimey’s to see the shop’s new mural celebrating Paramore as ambassadors.
