Hayley Williams And Paramore Wipe Social Media Accounts, New Speculations Arise
Fans of Paramore and Hayley Williams are scratching their heads after the band cleared their social media pages and shut down their website.
On Instagram and X, the band’s accounts, which used to be full of content, now show nothing. Their profile pictures are gone, leaving just the default icon. If you try to visit their website at paramore.net, you’ll find a ‘404 Not Found’ message.
On Facebook, Paramore’s profile picture is missing, but unlike the other platforms, their old posts are still up, making fans speculate about what is happening.
What Do The Fans Think?
Over on the Paramore subreddit, fans are busy guessing what this means. Some are worried, but others think it could be a sign of something big coming up after the band’s departure from Atlantic Records.
About the matter, someone shared:
“Could be that the record label that managed their site and socials is changing, so we’re in the limbo period.”
A few fans mentioned the possibility of a hiatus, as one of them wrote:
“I don’t know how serious Hayley was, but at a show, she did talk about the break and said that she was already ready to make the next one [album].”
Another person referred to the five-year break the band took before releasing 2022’s ‘This Is Why’ and commented:
“They also do this after the ‘After Laughter’ cycle was done, and then we didn’t see them for 5 years.”
The Plans For Paramore’s Future
Paramore’s latest album, ‘This Is Why’, was released in February 2023. Before it came out, the band had done something similar: they archived the posts on their official Instagram page, revealed a new website design, and announced dates for live shows.
Currently, the group is set to join Taylor Swift on the European leg of her ‘Eras Tour’ in 2024. But what they’ll do after that, especially as they’re done with their deal with Atlantic Records, is not clear yet.
An Instagram story from Paramore’s account earlier in the month said:
“Now that Paramore has spent the year touring behind ‘This Is Why’ (and making sure to take better care of themselves while they’re at it), a chapter of the band’s career has come to a close. They’ve now fulfilled all label obligations and are effectively free agents. As for the future of Paramore, all three members agreed that there’s a level of uncertainty.”
Hayley Williams’ personal website is also not working, showing a 404 error. Back in 2021, she said she was stepping back from her personal social media accounts. Her Instagram is still there, but like the band’s accounts, it’s empty.
