(NEW YORK) -- Paramore has announced on their website that guitarist Josh Farro and drummer Zac Farro have left the band.
According to the statement, the Farro brothers, both of them founding members, "let us know they would be leaving the band after our show in Orlando. None of us were really shocked. For the last year it hasn't seemed as if they wanted to be around anymore."
The remaining members -- frontwoman Hayley Williams, guitarist Taylor York and bassist Jeremy Davis -- stress that they're not disbanding and have "some amazing things lined up for next year," starting with a tour of South America that is still scheduled to take place.
Zac Farro hasn't wasted any time in making new music. His new band, Tunnel, has already released a new single called "Hide Your Eyes," which can be heard at AltPress.com.
