Hayley Williams, fronter for Paramore, says the departure of the band's co-founders - Josh and Zac Farro - in 2010 almost spelled the end of the band.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Williams said she considered getting a job "serving coffee":

"There were definitely days I would wake up and think it would be so easy to put up some sort of letter saying 'it's just too hard, we've had a good run,' and go, like, get a job serving coffee or doing something normal. Maybe that would be less stressful."

She added, however, that her spirit urged her onward:

"And then there were days that you would wake up and you would have a song in your head and know that there is purpose and there's freedom in being a musician and an artist, and you're really thankful."

Paramore will release their self-titled fourth album on April 8.
