Hayley Williams launches new music podcast Everything Is Emo

29 April 2022, 12:51 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Paramore's Hayley Williams has launched a new music podcast titled Everything Is Emo, which is available via BBC Sounds' Back To Back Sounds.

Everything Is Emo is Williams' first music show on Back To Back Sounds, which is the new music feature on BBC Sounds, and will feature 20 hour-long episodes.

Williams will refflect on classic albums, new artists that she's loving, and discuss her experience fronting Paramore.

A press release states that Williams will also play music by Jimmy Eat World, Wet Leg, My Chemical Romance, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Panic At The Disco, The Postal Service and more.

"Not long ago, people started calling me a "veteran" of my scene and of the music industry," Williams explained. "It sounds so funny to me because most of the time I still feel like a fan. The serious truth is I have, in fact, grown up in this scene for the last two decades. I guess that’s a pretty long time. I’m really excited to have the opportunity to publicly nerd out about bands and songs that make my favourite subgenre feel like home to me. And while it will be fun to take some trips down memory lane, I’m just as excited, if not more, to play music from new artists I’m discovering all the time."

She added, "Everything Is Emo is meant to feel like a conversation with other fans of the genre, young and (ahem) old. There’s going to be plenty of interaction, which I hope will feel somewhat reminiscent of the message boards and forums I used to frequent as a teenage scene kid. More than anything, I hope music fans and artists alike will be psyched to hear a highly considered spectrum of "EMO" in all its forms. And yeah, of course you’ll hear some Paramore."

The first episode of Hayley Williams' Everything Is Emo show is available to stream now via Back To Back Sounds: Amplified on BBC Sounds.
