Paramore Writing New Album, Find New Members For Tour

Paramore have recruited two new band members, according to NME.

Recovering quickly from guitarist and drummer Josh and Zac Farro's recent split from the band, Paramore have announced that Justin York and Josh Freese will temporarily fill the Farros' spots for the duration of the band's South American tour.

In addition, the remainder of the band is already working on a new album without the Farros.

But who needs the Farros anyway? Guitarist Josh Farro has been bashing lead singer Hayley Williams on his blog since the minute he left the band. He has written that Hayley has lied about the band's unity and that she has become a puppet of the music industry, among other things. It sounds like someone's a little bitter.
