Hayley Williams is going to be busy this spring.
Her first solo album, Petals for Armor, will be released on May 8 and she’s set to hit the road shortly thereafter.
The tour starts on May 13 in Amsterdam and hits the U.S. beginning on May 28 with a show at Seattle’s Moore Theater. It concludes on June 29 in Nashville.
“Wow. I am going on tour. Myself. It’s not Paramore and truthfully, it’s just a little terrifying. 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,” Williams said of the tour in a statement.
“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.”
