Billboard recently caught up with Paramore singer Hayley Williams and talked about the band’s upcoming U.S. tour. The band, who are currently touring Europe behind their hugely successful self-titled album, promise a show unlike any they’ve done on previous tours. Hayley said: “We just put a lot of forethought and a lot of elbow grease into this. We want to show the longtime fans how far they've brought us, and we want to show all the new fans what they might have missed out on had they not caught on. So bigger production, bigger stages, obviously. We want to be a band that puts on a larger than life show.”
Williams and band mates Taylor York and Jeremy Davis are riding high on the success of their number one album. It means a lot to the trio that they were able to produce hits such as “Now” and “Still Into You” after parting ways with original members Josh and Zac Farro in 2010. “I think knowing that we got through the hard time and made this record showed us there is a future and there are even brighter spots to get to and more exciting opportunities and more fun to be had,” Williams said.
Paramore kick off the US leg of their tour on October 15 in Seattle.
