In a recent interview with AbsolutePunk, Paramore vocalist Hayley Williams discussed what fans are to look forward to, events within the band over the past few years and what to expect from their highly anticipated self-titled fourth studio album which will be released later this year. An excerpt and a link to the full interview are below:
“I am so thankful for all that we have been through. You really do learn more from the bad… I believe that. It just does something to your perspective and I have never seen the three of us so clearly. Taylor and Jerm are so talented. We all really needed each other during this process because yes, at first, it was strange and uncharted territory. Then again, if we hadn’t been forced into it, we might’ve never made a voluntary decision to open up ourselves up to all possibilities. Musically, I think the biggest growth has come from Taylor now being a primary songwriter for the band. You’ll hear his mad-scientist personality come out a lot on this album, where before he didn’t have quite the same opportunity. Jeremy, as usual, came up with some of the coolest bass lines. Until writing this album, I hadn’t heard him play that way since the early days, when we met. I’m proud of my friends, they killed it.”
