Josh Farro talks with NME about leaving Paramore, along with life after the band, and any potential reunions.
Could you ever envisage yourself rejoining Paramore – is the door open?
“The thought has crossed my mind before, but I don't think so. It would be interesting to ever be asked to rejoin the band but I don't think it would ever happen, and I wouldn't join again because I'm trying to focus on my career and I really believe in my music."
In a statement released by the band, it was announced that Jeremy Davis is no longer a member of Paramore.
We’ve written and re-written this countless times and there’s just not a good way to put it... Jeremy is no longer going to be in the band with us. To be honest, this has been really painful. After taking time to consider how to move forward, we ultimately found that we really do believe Paramore can and should continue on. And so we will.
i read a couple comments today about how i can’t be feminist or whether or not i’m a “good” feminist. to speak specifically to one of those comments, i’ll say this: Misery Business is not a set of lyrics that I relate to as a 26 year old woman. i haven’t related to it in a very long time. those words were written when i was 17… admittedly, from a very narrow-minded perspective. it wasn’t really meant to be this big philosophical statement about anything. it was quite literally a page in my diary about a singular moment i experienced as a high schooler.
Paramore wrapped up their "Writing The Future" tour with Copeland last night. They announced this marks the end of their self-titled era and will soon be heading home to begin work on writing their next album.
