Hayley Williams has announced her first solo tour, in support of her forthcoming debut EP Petals For Armor.
“Wow. I am going on tour. Myself. It’s not Paramore and truthfully, it’s just a little terrifying,” Williams comments. “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.”
