Day 12 - Interview with the band

Day 12 - Interview with the band

We’re With the Band: Paramore Hayley and Jeremy on Brand New Eyes
By Erin Clements October 29, 2009 11:30 a.m

Since forming in 2004—when its members were still in high school—Tennessee-bred quintet Paramore has garnered a contract with pop-punk powerhouse Fueled by Ramen, a Grammy nomination, and a platinum record (2007’s Riot!). So we weren’t too surprised when their third release, Brand New Eyes, debuted at No. 2 last month. I visited lead vocalist Hayley Williams, recently recovered from an unfortunate bout of laryngitis, and bassist Jeremy Davis, backstage at their sold-out Hammerstein Ballroom gig last week to chat about the album’s success, their former funk band, and touring with No Doubt.

What were you trying to achieve with Brand New Eyes?
Hayley: The only thing we really knew was that we wanted to do a better job than we did on Riot! , which is the same goal we’ve always had—to do better each time.

What was on your mind when you were writing the album?
Hayley: I was really stressing about getting back into band mode and starting to rehearse and write. I realized how much I needed to say about my role in the band, about our roles in each other’s lives. It’s really a record about friendship and navigating life together and learning that you can’t all go about it the same way.

What inspired “Ignorance”?
Hayley: “Ignorance” was one of the first songs we completed start to finish. We had been sitting around our rehearsal space for hours, and Josh was really frustrated because I wanted something energetic to get us motivated. He was like, “Listen guys, we’re never going to have another ‘Misery Business’—just get over it.” He turns around for a second, and he’s in his own little world, and he turns back and starts playing this riff. And I was like, “Well, what’s that? Because that’ll do just fine.”
