HAYLEY WILLIAMS Denies PARAMORE Will "Return To Pop-Punk Roots"
While busy promoting her newly released solo album Petals For Armor, Hayley Williams just dispelled the rumors that her band Paramore is going back to the "pop-punk" sound for their future studio album.
The powerhouse singer tweeted that she "literally never said that" after several news articles implied that they will return to their "pop-punk roots", similar to their breakout sophomore album Riot.

Hayley also explained what she actually meant when she said they were listening to their "old faves" and shared the playlist.

But ultimately, Hayley said that the constantly evolving band never considered themselves "pop-punk". "We never believed we were pop-punk in the first place. We are just paramore. So there’s nothing to return to... except for the studio, when we’re ready.".
Well, that last part perked up our ears! Whatever the future holds for the sound of Paramore's upcoming record, we're still excited for it!
