In addition to releasing new songs, Paramore provided their fans with a cutesy new romance to swoon over. After a four-year hiatus, the band returned with their newest single, “This Is Why,” which was released on September 28.
The announcement was made during an interview with the group regarding their upcoming album, “This Is Why,” which will be their first new release since 2017’s “After Laughter.”
The frontwoman, Williams, and the guitarist, York, reportedly “confirmed rumors that they are dating, but declined to say further” during the interview, according to The Guardian.
Fans of the rock band Paramore were particularly interested in an intriguing personal tidbit that the band revealed in an interview with The Guardian on September 29.
According to a parenthetical statement made in the middle of the interview, Williams and York confirmed rumors of their relationship but declined to elaborate further. Play “Only Exception” repeatedly while pausing to yell! There have been rumors that Williams and York are dating for a while, but this is the first time the two people have said they are dating in public.
The bandmates didn’t specify the length of their relationship, but it’s probable that it deepened after York produced Williams’ debut solo album, Petals for Armor, in 2020. Williams and York uploaded Instagram stories that appeared to be identical to one another in 2018, which is when the rumors between the two of them first surfaced.
Williams typed “I love you” in one image, while York posted “Same” with the word upside down. Coincidence? Unlikely Additionally, there were allegations that the song “Crystal Clear” from Petals for Armor was about Williams’ developing romance with York. Williams told Pitchfork that he wrote the 2020 song to make people “fall in love, with an emphasis on falling, because no matter how scared, tough, or resistant I was to being vulnerable, I couldn’t help falling in love.”
The band’s kinship with one another is among its most charming features. The band first came together in 2004 when they were teenagers, and despite several personnel changes throughout the years, the current lineup still includes drummer Zac Farro, guitarist Taylor York, and singer Hayley Williams. Numerous dating rumors over the years have turned out to be accurate, but not in the way you may expect.
Josh Farro, the band’s lead guitarist at the time, and Williams were romantically involved from 2004 to 2007. They called it quits after three years, and Josh and his brother, Zac Farro, soon left the group. Awk. Josh never joined Paramore again, but Zac did, and he is still the band’s drummer. Williams married Chad Gilbert in 2016 after eight years of dating him, but the following year, in 2017, the couple announced their separation.
Williams and York’s relationship hasn’t received any further updates to date, and it doesn’t seem like they’re eager to divulge too much to the public just yet. However, the album’s release is scheduled for February 10, 2023.
