Hayley Williams on Re: This Is Why

We’ve long wanted to recognize the connection we have with some of the artists who’ve influenced us as a band and/or who have cited our band as an influence. Some of the songs have been remixed sort of classically, while others were reworked or rewritten. It’s incredible to hear all our worlds colliding. 


We sent ‘This Is Why’ – the record – out into the world early this year, with all its messages of disdain, distrust, and sobering self-examination. 


This is the Reply.


Hayley Williams sat down with Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show last night.

When Paramore revealed they were recording together in January 2022 the response from music fans around the world was immediate and celebratory. In the time since the Grammy-winning, RIAA-certified multi-Platinum band released their last album, After Laughter  – and Hayley Williams unveiled two lauded solo albums – Paramore have become more popular than ever.  Over the last few years, Paramore’s influence and popularity has snowballed, as the age of streaming organically propelled them into a position as one of the world’s biggest, most culturally compelling rock bands. For the band, who formed as teenagers in Tennessee, their 20-year trajectory has seen them grow from youthful outsiders to bone-fide pop culture icons, permeating the musical landscape by inspiring a new generation of musical talent. 


This Is Why is the band’s most critically lauded release to date and the album’s title track gave them their first #1 at Alternative Radio in the US and was voted “Hottest Record Of The Year” by listeners to BBC Radio One in the UK.The record scored numerous top 10 positions around the world including #1’s in both Australia and the UK and debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200. This Is Why has been named one of the best albums of 2023 so far by numerous media outlets including Rolling Stone, Billboard, Stereogum, and more. The single, “Running Out Of Time” currently sits in the Alternative Top 20.

Paramore will continue to tour in support of their long-awaited return album, including tour dates in New Zealand and Australia next month. Paramore will join Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour as the opener for all 48 dates of the 2024 European leg of the tour. The European leg kicks off in Paris on May 9th and wraps in London on August 17th at Wembley Stadium, one of six nights the tour will spend at the legendary venue. Paramore opened for Taylor Swift on the very first two shows of Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour in Glendale, AZ in March of this year.

Tickets for Paramore


Praise for Paramore:


“One of the most influential bands of their generation” – The Guardian


“a record that not only evolves, but yet again reinvents the sound of Paramore” – Upset


“Paramore remain as vital as ever” – Rolling Stone UK


“…in their sixth studio album, “This Is Why,” they get angrier, pricklier and funkier, all the while merging the band’s past and future, levitating way beyond their icon status to something else entirely.” – Associated Press


…it’s working as a power trio here: a singer, drummer and guitarist barreling ahead at the most thrilling heights of their musicianship” – NPR 


This Is Why is Paramore’s excellent foray into post-punk”Rolling Stone


“a band who can read the zeitgeist before it truly hits” – Dork


This Is Why is their most biting, fearless, and aggressive work to date, as Paramore channel their rage into a tenacious call for political action and self-reflection… the result is a tight, 10-track effort that blends the band’s past eras—from the teen angst of RIOT! all the way to the quiet confidence of Williams’ 2020 solo LP Petals for Armor—and marries nostalgia with the starkness of our 2023 lives.”  – The Daily Beast


“it’s Williams’s most unvarnished vocal performance in nearly a decade.” – New Yorker


“a fearless triumph” – Rock Sound


“An outstanding return” – Clash


“another bold yet sonically grounded triumph: while the production recalls the art-rock idiosyncrasies of After Laughter, Hayley Williams sneers, spins and strikes with the tenacity of her Riot! Work.” – Billboard


“a thrilling array of rock earworms” – Daily Star


“Paramore’s consistently innovative, catchy songwriting and Williams’ powerhouse vocals never left the chat.” – Stereogum


“one of the most influential alternative rock bands of their generation” The Face 


It’s unmistakable musical growth” – Pollstar 


…transcended its pop punk beginnings to produce a genre-defying body of work that has defied the patriarchal penchant of alternative music and paved a new path for artists” BRICKS 


they’re unapologetically trying something new instead with the raw, political, and ultimately cathartic songs.” –Entertainment Weekly


“…with This Is Why, Paramore continues to erase any remnants of “scene” labels, continuing their ascension as one of the most dominant pop-rock acts on this defective planet.” – SPIN


“Paramore at their creative, fluid best” – The Forty Five


“Williams’ voice is the highlight of any Paramore record, and here she is in the form of her life.” – Crack
