Hayley Williams has been confirmed for The Great Escape 2020, which takes place across venues in Brighton between 13th – 16th May. 2020 marks the return of the singer-songwriter, who released her debut solo EP Petals For Armor earlier this year. Simmer, taken from the EP, was her first new music release since Paramore‘s 2017 album After Laughter.
“Wow. I am going on tour. Myself. It’s not Paramore and truthfully, it’s just a little terrifying,” she comments. “But if I know anything, it’s that there’s no safer place (besides at home with my dog) than to be 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.
“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.”
