“Simmer” marks Williams’ first new music release since Paramore’s chart-topping 2017 album, “After Laughter”. Highlighted by singles “Hard Times,” “Told You So,” “Fake Happy,” and “Rose-Colored Boy,” the LP debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Top Alternative Albums” chart upon its May 2017 release while also arriving on the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #6. Long regarded as an exhilarating live act, Paramore has spent much of the past decade-plus on the road, including countless sold out world tours and show-stealing festival sets around the globe.
Williams has also enjoyed a wide range of extracurricular success, including collaborations with such diverse artists as Zedd, American Football, and Chvrches.
As for the upcoming album, Petals For Armor, Williams says, “Now that it’s time to put it all out there, I can finally exhale. I’m excited to let people in to experience a different side of myself that I’ve only very recently become familiar with.”
