Guitarist Josh Farro and drummer Zac Farro have decided to part ways with Paramore. The band's remaining members, Hayley Williams, Jeremy Davis and Taylor York made the announcement through their website, stating
A couple of months ago, Josh and Zac let us know they would be leaving the band after our show in Orlando last Sunday. None of us were really shocked. For the last year it hasn't seemed as if they wanted to be around anymore. We want Josh and Zac to do something that makes them happy and if that isn't here with us, then we support them finding happiness elsewhere. But we never for a second thought about leaving any of this behind. We really hope that you can be encouraged by the fact that the three of us who are still here are ready to take on another chapter of our journey together.
