Talk about girl power!

Tennessee pop-punk band Paramore — fronted by Hayley Williams, SPIN Readers’ 2009 Sex Goddess of the Year — will headline the 2010 Honda Civic Tour, featuring Canadian pop-rock twins Tegan and Sara on opening duties!

Both acts are touring behind SPIN-praised albums: Paramore’s Brand New Eyes (also one of SPIN’S 40 Best Albums of 2009) and Tegan and Sara’s Sainthood. A possible onstage collaboration could be in order — after all, Williams recently joined Weezer onstage for a cover of “Say It Ain’t So.”

According to Paramore’s website, the tour will kick off July 23 in Raleigh, NC, but the remaining details — dates, cities, venues, et al — have yet to be announced. Paramore warm up with a short spring trek. Check out the dates here.

Twins sisters — and lesbians — Tegan and Sara recently sat with SPIN to talk about their record, relationships, and managing family dynamics. Read the complete interview here, and check out exclusive photos from our shoot here.

Former Honda Civic Headliners include Fall Out Boy, Black Eyed Peas, and Panic at the Disco.
