Hayley Williams also teased that she will be back with Paramore and planning their next project in "like five minutes".

Hayley Williams has revealed that she won't be performing any Paramore songs while she is promoting her new solo music.

In January, Hayley Williams revealed that she will be releasing her first solo album, Petals for Armor, this May. Hayley put out 'Simmer' as the project's lead single and since then she's released four more songs. Explaining why she started to make her own solo music, Hayley told Annie Mac that her therapist advised her to write to help process things and "it just happened".

With Petals for Armor on its way, fans are now wondering if Hayley will go on a solo tour. As it stands, she hasn't announced anything official but she's teased what fans can expect from her live shows and if Paramore will be involved in them at all.

Speaking to Entercom, Hayley explained that she won't be including Paramore songs in her solo setlists. She said: "I'm not gonna work Paramore songs in because that's very sacred to me and that belongs at a Paramore show."

However, she did confirm that there will be more Paramore shows in the future: "And there will be more Paramore shows. Yes. Confirmed."

She then added: "I think there's already moments where we find ourselves fantasising about the next Paramore project and we kind of have to stop ourselves because everyone's so busy working on shit right now. I guess I feel very safe. I don't need to bring Paramore into this and be like, 'Hey, remember me I'm in Paramore', because in about five minutes I'm gonna be back with Paramore."

Hayley ended the interview saying: "The love of my life is Paramore and those are my best friends too. I feel like my creative life began because I met them. I wouldn't really know what to do if I did something entirely without them because I don't think there's a bigger fan on this earth of them than me."

In other words, we may not be hearing any Paramore songs during the Petals for Armor era but Hayley will be performing with Taylor York and Zac Farro again soon.
