That feeling of discontent followed the band all the way to Malibu as they recorded their third, as-yet-untitled record, produced by Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance) and due out in September. It took Williams writing the lyrics to new song ‘Ignorance’ for the fi ve-piece to fi nally address their longstanding personal issues. “I was feeling really alone and really judged,” she admitted. “I felt really by myself and angry, it took me writing those lyrics to get our band talking again and getting us to the point of starting over. This new album is us admitting that we are extremely screwed up and that we don’t have this happy little family all the time.
“I don’t know if any of us thought
the band was over but there were certainly times
when it would have been
easier if it was.” Hayley Williams
“This album is about the experiences of being in a band with four of my friends, growing up with them and feeling like we are all growing apart,” Williams surmised. “A lot of fans will understand exactly what I’m talking about on certain songs. To the people that follow Paramore this album will answer a lot of questions. It’s scary to think about it, but it might be nice to fi nally have everything out there in the open. There’s a lot of heart on the record.” www.paramore.net
