Wow, this is unfortunate.
The band posted this announcement on their official website on Saturday:
"A couple of months ago, Josh and Zac let us know they would be leaving the band after our show in Orlando last Sunday [December 12, at the House Of Blues venue]. None of us were really shocked. For the last year it hasn't seemed as if they wanted to be around anymore.
We want Josh and Zac to do something that makes them happy and if that isn't here with us, then we support them finding happiness elsewhere."
Members Hayley Williams, Jeremy Davis, and Taylor York remain in the band and explained that they will not be splitting up. "We never for a second thought about leaving any of this behind," they wrote. "We really hope that you can be encouraged by the fact that the three of us who are still here are ready to take on another chapter of our journey together."
The band still continues to tour South America in February and March 2011.
Wowsa. They're not even sugar-coating things. Inneresting.
We're a little shocked. What do U think, Paramore fans?
