Petals for Armor is just months away now, and Hayley Williams has begun to open up to interviewers what a live show for the project may include. One thing that is certain is that Paramore tracks will not be on the setlist, because Williams says that those tracks are for Paramore to perform in the near future.
Hayley Williams has been with Paramore since its very beginning in 2004, and since then the band has released six full-length albums, with their most recent being 2017’s evolution of their sound, After Laughter.
Last year, Hayley Williams revealed that she didn’t know “what [was] next for Paramore,” before teasing her own solo music.
“My first creative outlet was music and even though people are going to see me in this kind of space with Brian a lot more, I don’t want people to forget. I was like, ‘I’m just going to leave this here and see you guys on the flip side.’ I really don’t know what’s next for Paramore, but the guys and I just had dinner the other night at my house. I think we’re just really enjoying being friends and adult human beings at home by ourselves without music.”
“I’m not gonna work Paramore songs in because that’s very sacred to me and that belongs at a Paramore show.”
Even though she won’t be performing any of the band’s tracks, she did say they’ll be performing together again someday.
“And there will be more Paramore shows. Yes. Confirmed,” she states. “I think there are already moments where we find ourselves fantasizing about the next Paramore project and we kind of have to stop ourselves because everyone’s so busy working on shit right now. I guess I feel very safe. I don’t need to bring Paramore into this and be like, ‘Hey, remember me I’m in Paramore’, because in about five minutes I’m gonna be back with Paramore.”
“The love of my life is Paramore and those are my best friends too. I feel like my creative life began because I met them. I wouldn’t really know what to do if I did something entirely without them because I don’t think there’s a bigger fan on this earth of them than me.”
