He returned to Paramore for the ongoing Spring Tour.
‘It sucked – not only was a lot of what he wrote untrue but I couldn’t go online and say that,’ says Williams.
‘I’d look like a 14-year-old writing bullet points rebutting everything he said – it would have been immature and ridiculous for us to put the people who follow our band through that. A lot of people will believe that stuff but the people who like our music will still come to the shows.
Farro independently released his debut album "Walkways" on February 5, 2016, and has announced a mini tour in support of the album.
Josh and Hayley Williams dated for three years, but broke up in the fall of 2007 because they felt it would interfere with the music. After the messy split with Paramore, the band released "Monster" - granting them a passive agressive tweet from Josh regarding it.
Josh and Zac left the band together, after month's of thinking.
Josh posted a message on stating he had become engaged, and was staying behind on the upcoming Pacific Rim Tour to plan his wedding and will be replaced by rhythm guitarist Taylor York's brother Justin York.If I’d stayed in a small town my whole life I’d have gone crazy.’ As she got older, her family moved to Franklin, 20 miles from Nashville, where she discovered the joys of punk. She was like: “No, you can’t have your hair like Brody from The Distillers, you can’t have a Mohawk…” But she let me go to gigs.’ Williams started singing in bands at 13 and, after doing a stint in a covers band singing Stevie Wonder songs, soon joined Paramore.‘When we first set out it was just to play shows – it was a very simple goal,’ she laughs, looking back on their successful, if turbulent 11 years together. There’s still that feeling today, of us together against the world, like The Goonies.Josh Farro, born Joshua Neil Farro on September 29, 1987 (age 29), in Voorhees, New Jersey, and brother of former drummer Zac Farro.He was Paramore's first lead guitarist and backing vocalist for Paramore.I went to their i Tunes gig and was still a bit perplexed.
