Paramore: Totally Over ‘Twilight’


It seemed like only yesterday that Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams was gushing about how she was “in love with a vampire” and explained the hidden references in her band’s Twilight soundtrack contribution “Decode.”

Well, chalk it up to the fickle nature of young love because, just like actress Kristen Stewart, Paramore is so over the Twilight franchise.

“We don’t want to be, like, the vampire house band,” drummer Zac Farro told “It was really fun to be a part of that, and great exposure, but I think Twilight was it for us. We don’t want to seem like we’re trying to get in every single movie they put out.”

Which makes perfect sense. Because, as everyone knows, vampires stay eternally young. Whereas Paramore have totally grown up — and it’s evident on their upcoming September release: “A lot of people have told us that (the album) has a very mature sound,” Farro added. “I don’t think we were aiming to be just more mature or whatever, but that’s really cool to hear. I think there’s a lot of new directions on the record. It sounds more like our live show to me, and the songs are just a lot deeper and have a lot more going on and everybody’s parts are really special.”
