After releasing ‘Petals For Armor I’ earlier this year, Hayley Williams has now shared ‘Petals For Armor II’!
Both comprised of tracks from her upcoming debut album ‘Petals For Armor’, set for release on 8th May, ‘Petals For Armor II’ was completed by the release of her newest song ‘Dead Horse’.
Hayley explains, “’PFA ll’ is the perfect interlude between where ‘Petals’ began and where it’s going… Part lll isn’t far behind. I needed these songs to help me get to a place where I could name my shame, take inventory of emotional scars, true friends, awful coping mechanisms, and discover what I desire for my life.
“The latest single, ‘Dead Horse’, offers strength back to a younger, weaker version of myself. I feel like all of this needed to be said in order to embody the kind of woman I hope to be.”
The new release also comes with the news that due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Hayley will be postponing her UK and European tour to next year. “Due to the continuing restrictions on travel and large gatherings as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK & Europe Petals For Armor tour dates currently scheduled for May, are being rescheduled for 2021. The North American Petals For Armor dates will be rescheduled as well. More information on when the new dates will take place will be available soon.” A statement says. “Tickets for both the UK/Europe and North America tours will be honored at the rescheduled dates. However, should you have any other questions about your tickets, please reach out to your point of purchase.”
Guess we’ll just have top last out Hayley’s latest until then!
