Hayley williams and jeremy davis dating
As Hayley and I discuss the essence of the band’s new album, After Laughter, at lunch, she rests her chin on the palm of her hand.She’s 28 now, and her once-signature hairstyle has given way to a lightly synthetic blonde that cascades freely down her arms.She laughs a bit nervously and, for the first time in our day, her brightness dims a little, too. ” in pop punk, she was really more of a Motown buff.It seems obvious to her to be friendly, she tells me, and strange that I would point out her politeness. Born in Mississippi, she was shy but began to sing in a church children’s choir.She treats almost everyone with this easy familiarity, it turns out.Later that afternoon, we crisscross the city in her car, a robin’s egg blue Fiat littered with half-empty water bottles, stopping at places she loves.“She said, ‘Can I trust you to be home by yourself four days a week? And I will write songs all day.’” Because she was such a loner, her mother increasingly encouraged her to join a full-time band just so she could make friends.
She says it got so bad, at certain moments, that she fixated on death way too much for her own comfort and found a therapist: “For the first time in my life, there wasn’t a pinhole of light at the end of the tunnel. It wasn’t in the sense of, I’m going to take my life. Everything hurts.” Hayley even privately quit the band for a brief period in the summer of 2015, feeling exhausted and thinking she had nothing left to say or sing. “I thought, There’s gotta be something else that I’m good at in my life.
“We didn’t have anywhere to go, so we lived with her friend in a double-wide trailer right outside the school parking lot.” Eventually, when another friend of her mom’s moved to Franklin, Tennessee, outside of Nashville, mom and daughter followed.
