In an official blog post, remaining members Hayley Williams, Jeremy Davis, and Taylor York, announced Josh and Zac's departure, saying they let the band know a couple of months ago that they would be leaving after Paramore's Orlando show.
"None of us were really shocked," Hayley, Jeremy, and Taylor wrote. "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."
Shutting down any other rumors, Sunday night Hayley Tweeted, "Paramore is (still) a band."
Are you sad that Josh and Zac Farro are leaving Paramore? Do you think the band will be the same without them?
