Melodramatic pop-punks from Tennessee, fronted by the feisty Hayley Williams.
Known for their anthemic, richly emotive brand of pop-rock, Paramore have garnered acclaim that far exceeds their initial success as one of the guiding lights of the emo scene of the mid-2000s. Led by singer Hayley Williams, the group broke through with 2007's Riot!, hitting 15 on the Billboard 200 and spawning their trademark hit "Misery Business." They reached number two with 2009's Brand New Eyes and topped the Billboard 200 with 2013's Paramore, winning a Grammy along the way for the single "Ain't It Fun." Over the years, the band have expanded their sound, embracing an increasingly genre-crossing blend of '80s-style synth and dance-rock influences; a process that also found them paring down from a sometime-quintet to a trio for 2017's sophisticated After Laughter. Away from Paramore, Williams has collaborated on equally diverse projects with artists like B.o.B, Zedd, and Chvrches. In 2020, she embarked on a solo career with Petals for Armor. The album debuted at number 18 on the Billboard 200 and paved the way for her sophomore album, 2021's Flowers for Vases/descansos. In 2023, Williams was back with Paramore for their sixth studio album, This Is Why.
