The highly photogenic Hayley Williams no doubt found her face as red as her hair when her Paramore ex-bandmates Josh and Zac Farro aired their grievances—and there were many—over their time in the successful rock group in an earth-scorching blog post just before Christmas. And the brothers’ departure couldn’t have come at a worse time for the band, which is set to tour South America next month. That said, Williams recently tweeted the names of the Farros’ touring replacements.
“Neither Josh Freese nor Justin York are joining as members, just helping us for the South American tour,” Hayley tweeted on December 30. Later that day, she also posted the news that Paramore’s Taylor York (brother of Justin) “sent me the 1st official demo for me to write lyrics to. And I am so hopeful and motivated for the future!!”
Further to that, lest any Paramore fans think the Grammy-nominated Williams might be resting on her laurels, post-New Year’s Day, today she tweeted, “Back to writing!! & I got a brand spankin’ new journal to write lyrics in…”
So, Hayley’s feeling productive and the band seems to be carrying on as normal. Do you think Paramore’s upcoming fourth album will be as solid as their previous output, without the Farros in the mix?
