With her debut solo album ‘Petals for Armor’ set to arrive in May, Hayley Williams has just announced some brand new tour dates, including a special show on 15th May at this year’s The Great Escape festival!
“Wow. I am going on tour. Myself. It’s not Paramore and truthfully, it’s just a little terrifying,” she says. “But if I know anything, it’s that there’s no safer place (besides at home with my dog) than to be in a room, on a stage, in front of the people who I’ve grown up singing my lungs out for. There was a time I thought I wouldn’t tour Petals For Armor. What a joke. I must.
This is a brand new adventure. It’s important to embark on something new every now and then just to show yourself that you can. I welcome the discomfort and the joy and I’m ready to be present for this. The first run of shows is going to be hot, sweaty, and intimate. My brand-newly-formed band and I will be playing rooms that Paramore outgrew a decade ago. It’s going to be so satisfying to feel the energy of a crowd that close again, especially while performing songs that feel so vital for me; songs I have never performed before for an audience.
Thank you for the chance to tour this. I hope to see a ton of old friends and make some new ones too.”
