Hayley Williams Launches Solo Tour For ‘Petals For Armor’ This Spring

Paramore‘s Hayley Williams has announced her first tour in support of her debut solo album, Petals for Armor. The singer released “Simmer,” “Leave It Alone” and “Cinnamon” from the album, with the full project set for release on May 8.

In September, Paramore —which Williams helped form in 2004—announced they are going on hiatus.

The upcoming tour includes a show at Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl on June 29.

“Wow. I am going on tour. Myself. It’s not Paramore and truthfully, it’s just a terrifying,” she said in a statement. “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, in front of the people who’ve grown up singing my lungs out for. There was a time I thought I would tour Petals for Armor. What a joke. I must. The first run of shows is going to be hot, sweaty, and intimate. My brand-newly-formed band 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.”

Tickets for the Petals for Armour Tour go on sale March 13 at 10 a.m. local time. Fans who pre-order the record by March 8 will have access to pre-sale tickets for U.S. dates beginning March 10-March 12.
