Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams has embarked on her debut solo project, and has now announced she will be going on tour.
The “Petals For Armor Tour” UK + Europe and US tour, begins on 13th March in the Netherlands, and will come to London’s Electric Brixton on 16 May 2020. Pre-sale for Hayley’s London, Brixton Electric show begins at 10am GMT on Weds 11th March with general sale commencing at the same time on Fri 13th March via Hayley’s official website – https://www.petalsforarmor.com/
Williams recently unveiled “PETALS FOR ARMOR I” – a special five-track collection including the acclaimed tracks “Simmer”, “Leave It Alone” and “Cinnamon” – all three joined by official companion videos – as well as two “Interlude” videos, which can be viewed here and here.
The full album ‘PETALS FOR ARMOR‘ is confirmed for release on May 8th through Atlantic Records and if you pre order the album via her website, you will get access to an exclusive pre-sale code for tickets to the tour.
On speaking about the tour, Williams says:
“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.
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.”
