Paramore's Guitarist, Drummer Split From Band

Guitarist and drummer Josh and Zac Farro have amicably split from Paramore, according to Rolling Stone.

The band posted an official statement on their website in which the remaining members of the band express their understanding and sadness for Josh and Zac's departure from Paramore.

The Farros had given the rest of the band a few months' notice, so the fact that their recent show in Orlando would be the guys' last one was no surprise to Hayley, Jeremy and Taylor.

The other members of the band have got Josh and Zac's back in their future endeavors, as they said in their statement, "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."

Don't get too shaken up though. The rest of Paramore is sticking together and continuing to do what they do best. Their South American tour is still on for early 2011. The rest of them have absolutely no plans to call it quits, at least not anytime soon.
