Last week, we were kind of shocked to hear about guitarist Josh Farro and drummer Zac Farro's exit from Paramore.
Now, they've released an official exit statement on Josh's blog.
Here are some excerpts, highlighting Josh and Zac's issues with the band:
- I had a statement typed ready to post to you guys but Hayley released one without my permission.
- We didn’t understand why Hayley was the only one signing the contract since we were told this was a “band”, but we were too young to grasp all of this.
- The label received the rerecorded demos and once again tried to fire the entire band, saying we were terrible.
- All the while we still questioned whether or not we were an actual band, but Hayley continued to insist we were, despite our being ignored and pushed around by the label.
- We’ve always been treated as less important than Hayley.
- In reality, what started as natural somehow morphed into a manufactured product of a major label, riding on the coattails of “Hayley’s dream.”
- We truly feel that God is leading us elsewhere and is going to do great things with us.
