Paramore singer Hayley Williams has opened up about Paramore’s history in an interview with MTV. She said that many songs off of 2009’s Brand New Eyes directly dealt with her and former member, Josh Farrow’s, failed relationship.
After Josh and Zac Farro’s departure from the band, many people were eagerly waiting to hear Williams’ take on the story (especially after hearing Josh’s side of the story).
“I would say that a large majority of those songs, yes, have to do with the relationship we had and then that we had to mend,” she told MTV, who will air the band’s first interview since the split on Jan. 7. “And it was really hard, because we were all friends, and then going through a breakup and going through any kind of tension as a band really affected all the lyrics. There are a lot of specifics that I pulled from my experience with just feeling like my face was underneath a boot all the time.”
