No members were on hand to accept the trophies at the award ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 4.

These awards came after the band's 20-year contract with Atlantic Records records expired late last year. This Is Why was the band's final release with the company. The record made it to No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

Fans feared Paramore was breaking up after the band wiped most of its social media accounts last month, but it was later confirmed that the group was just trying to turn over a new leaf.

Paramore released a new cover of the Talking Heads' "Burning Down The House" last week. It will be part of a larger multi-artist tribute to the older band's iconic concert movie Stop Making Sense from A24.
