Paramore's Hayley Williams almost quit music over band's troubles

  Paramore's Hayley Williams almost quit music over band's troubles Paramore singer Hayley Williams considered quitting music because of the band's troubles. In 2010, the band were at the height of their critical and commercial success when guitarist Josh Farro and his drummer brother Zac both quit and went public with their grievances, claiming the rock group was a "manufactured product of a major label" and that Hayley received special treatment from the group's management. The band was thrust into further turmoil last year (16) when former bass guitarist Jeremy Davis, who quit in 2015, sued Hayley over royalties, claiming he had helped write many of the group's hit songs. Speaking to Beats 1 Radio presenter Zane Lowe, Hayley revealed the group's troubles had almost made her give up on music. "I was kind of flat-lined and I think that if it weren't for (bandmate) Taylor (York) the band would be over," she said. "That is just kind of the truth. Yeah, I had enough. I'm tired of losing friends or I'm tired of doubting myself, and maybe if I'm just not doing it all then I won't have anything to doubt. I can see what else I can do." Hayley and Taylor have since made peace with the Farro brothers and Zac even rejoined the group earlier this year (17). Hayley explained that they buried the hatchet after a chance meeting with Josh in a coffee shop. She explained, "We (Hayley and Taylor) were at the coffee shop talking about whether we were going to stay in this band or not when we saw Josh. It was crazy. I think you rarely get to experience real full circle redemption in your lifetime but on your own, in your own kind of solitude but I think to be able to share that moment with Taylor." Paramore's first album in four years, After Laughter, is released on 12 May (17). Its lead single Hard Times arrived on Thursday (19Apr17).

Pop-punk singer Hayley Williams on Paramore nearly splitting: 'I wanted to start a new band'

  Pop-punk singer Hayley Williams on Paramore nearly splitting: 'I wanted to start a new band' Pop-punk band Paramore have spoken out over their numerous internal bust-ups, with lead singer Hayley Williams revealing she felt "sick of this crap" in 2015 and wanted to "start a new band". The revelations come as the four-piece prepare for the release of their new album After Laughter, fresh from unveiling 80s beach-pop inspired lead single Hard Times. Williams, the band's only continuous member, is now 28-years-old and battle-hardened in surviving tensions that plagued Paramore, who ascended to the height of emo pop-punk in the 2000s — and beyond — co-headlining Reading and Leeds in 2014. Misery business? The most notable fissure occurred in 2010, when, two years after the band pulled their European tour, lead guitarist Jack Farro, William's former boyfriend, quit the band alongside his younger brother, Zac, the drummer. Announcing their departure via a blog, the open letter hit out at the label's alleged controlling behaviour and reserved particular scorn for Williams' father who doubled as the band's manager. Farro claimed he would "constantly threaten to 'pull the plug' on the whole band if we complained about anything, suggesting that we were hired guns… riding on the coattails of 'Hayley's dream'". Despite the setback, Paramore continued as a three-piece.

“At least now, if anything, we have an excuse,” Hayley Williams said over the phone from Los Angeles, where Paramore still had some business to take care of before playing Austin’ s South By Southwest. And true, it’ s been almost four years since the Tennessee band ’ s last album, 2009’ s
