Former Paramore member Josh Farro has confirmed that he is back on speaking terms with his former bandmates but has ruled out ever rejoining the group.
Farro and his brother left Paramore in 2010 and posted a tell-all blog about his exit, claiming the band were a “manufactured product of a major label” where the members were treated as “less important” than lead singer Hayley Williams.
Paramore’s first live appearance without Davis will take place on their PARAHOY cruise, which takes place in March.
‘It was the worst day of my life,’ says Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams of the day, almost three years ago, her ex-bandmate and ex-boyfriend, Josh Farro, wrote a blog denouncing his old group as a ‘manufactured product of a major label’ in which the members were treated ‘as less important than Hayley’.
‘There were days I’d wake up and think, “this is pointless”,’ she says.
‘There were times I thought I’d have to get another job.
It’s a bit of a departure from their usual pop-punk sound. ‘We knew we’d have to convince some people but it’s been a very positive experience for us,’ she says. We’ve always been too rock for pop and too pop for rock.
