Over the summer, Paramore vocalist frontwoman Hayley Williams spoke about how Bloc Party had influenced the forthcoming ‘This Is Why’.

“From day one, Bloc Party was the number one reference because there was such an urgency to their sound that was different to the fast punk or the pop punk or the like, loud wall of sound emo bands that were happening in the early 2000s,” she explained.

“They had their own thing and it was so unique and so dynamic, and it really stuck with us. And I’m really really thankful for this band, I’m so thankful that they’re back, they’re playing shows they’re putting out great songs, and it just makes me feel even more excited to get back out into the world, and maybe cross paths with the band that has been a huge part of our story from day one.”

In the same interview, Williams also praised future touring partners Foals’ growth over the years. “I really respect this band’s journey and how they continue to evolve. I think it takes a lot of guts too,” she said.

“I think of every time we’ve gone home to write a new album, or we have an album in the can but haven’t presented it to the world, it’s a really scary feeling. It can be nerve-wracking to present yourself in a new way and essentially, grow in front of the world. Any time a band re-emerges with a new picture, a new frame of mind, I think it’s courageous and cool and I’m really enjoying their evolution.”

This week, Paramore brought ‘This Is Why’ to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for the song’s TV debut.
