Latest posts ‘Paramore’
Hayley posted a new photo and message to Paramore’s official Instagram account. She wrote about writing new music for the fifth album, you can read her message below.
about a year ago, we began writing & demoing songs for #5
following up our self-titled album didn’t seem like it was going to be an easy task and, unsurprisingly, it was not. the problem about comparing yourself to… yourself… is that even though it’s better than looking elsewhere, you’re still looking in the ?wrong? direction. for me, it wasn’t until i trusted that the past is finished with me that i could go looking for what’s next. our pasts can be a great comforter, or a horror movie; a noose, or a shield… but it is “past” for a reason. after a rest, we have to go looking for what’s supposed to come after that. – h
Hayley updated her Intagram profile photo, biography and then posted three white photos without any descriptions. She’s also only following two accounts at the moment: Paramore’s and Good Dye Young’s.
Her bio now says “recovering realist & singer of the American genre-neutral band Paramore | founder/CEO of goodDYEyoung.”
What does all this mean and does it have something to do with the upcoming Paramore album? We have to wait and see!
As part of their documentary series ‘Culture At Risk’ PBS News Hour reported of downtown Nashville being a backbone of the nation’s music industry for years and how the increasing demand for new apartments and office buildings is threatening its historic music spaces.

Hayley’s hair dye company, goodDYEyoung, is participating in Black Friday in a cool, different way. Instead of doing usual Black Friday sales, the company wants to give back and help other people. Starting today (through December 20th), goodDYEyoung will be donating $1 from every product sold towards a non-profit organization that represents a cause that is dear to the company.
By purchasing one or more of their dyes, or some of their merch, you will donate a dollar towards a good cause! Great, huh?
Since our launch, we at goodDYEyoung have been blown away by the many inspiring people who make up this community! Together, we're creating an all-inclusive counter culture that inspires creativity. . From Black Friday until December 20th, we will donate $1 from every product sold to a non-profit organization. The organizations we have selected represent communities and causes we care deeply about. . Please join us in spreading inclusiveness — shop consciously :: dye boldly!
Paramore will be part of celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart’s Purpose Hotel project and they will be featured on The Purpose Hotel, Vol. 1 soundtrack to help fund the project.
The Purpose Hotel is a hotel in which everything benefits a worthy cause. The Internet fee will go to an initiative fighting human trafficking, the furniture creation will provide jobs for people in need, and each room will sponsor a child’s education, with a plaque on each door telling that child’s story. You can read more about the project here.
The soundtrack will have 20 tracks from different artists. It’s still unknown whether or not the soundtrack will include a new Paramore song, “Purpose Hotel is something that we want do locally with our community. But it isn’t promotion for new album!” Hayley tweeted when a fan asked about a new song.
You can pre-order the soundtrack at the project’s kickstarter page. Everyone who pledges $15 or more will receive digital version of the soundtrack, it’s expected to be released sometime next month.
Jeremy commented on the artists of the soundtrack saying “The artists we’ve chosen for The Purpose Hotel soundtrack are not only friends of ours, but their songs perfectly fit where we see the hotel going, with themes of justice, relationships, beauty and hope.”
One of our admins, Lidia wrote an article about Hayley and her vegan hair dye line Good Dye Young for Cosmopolitan Finland. You can read the whole article below and see the original here (in Finnish).
Singer Hayley Williams, 27, has had a busy year. In January, Hayley’s band Paramore announced they were working on their fifth album. In February, Hayley married her longtime boyfriend, guitarist Chad Gilbert of the band New Found Glory. In March she launched a vegan hair dye company, Good Dye Young.
Hayley, who dyed her hair for the first time when she was 12 years old, had been cooking up the idea of a hair dye company for several years. Taking over a completely new field outside of music was a big step for Hayley, so she wanted to do it with her best friend, hairstylist Brian J. O’connor, 29.
Good Dye Young’s goal is to create a community where everyone can express themselves freely. When Hayley was young, she received many disapproving looks for her bright hair, because there weren’t many people with colored hair in her hometown in the state of Tennessee.
– I’m glad that something I do with a business somehow helps people, who have ever somehow felt left out. It gives my work a real meaning, Hayley tells Cosmopolitan.
It was important to Hayley to have people of different backgrounds and ethnicities represent her company. For example, the plus-size models the company used in their campaigns, were well received.
Hayley was bullied in school, and that’s why she wants to encourage young women to ignore other people’s opinions.
– Every girl deserves to be seen and heard. I would like that all are valued for who they are, Hayley said when receiving the Trailblazer-Prize at Billboard Women In Music Awards in 2014.
Good Dye Young currently has five semi-permanent hair dyes: Red (Rock Lobster), pink (Ex-Girl), blue (Blue Ruin), Orange (in the Riot), and yellow (Steal My Sunshine). Hayley’s favorite is the orange one.
– Orange is definitely the color I feel the most comfortable in.
Good Dye Young’s products contain sunflower oil, as well as an essential oil, bergamot, which is said to reduce stress.
