Image Credit: Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic.comThe Paramore family has just gotten smaller. In a blog post dated Dec. 18 on their official site, the Brand New Eyes band announced that guitarist Josh Farro and drummer Zac Farro will be leaving the group. “A couple of months ago, Josh and Zac let us know that they would be leaving the band after our show in Orlando last Sunday,” the post reads. “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.”

Never fear, Paramore fans: The remaining members — including frontwoman Hayley Williams, bassist Jeremy Davis, and guitarist Taylor York — continue to be tight-knit, and have no intentions of breaking up anytime soon. “We never for a second thought about leaving any of this behind,” the post reads. “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.”
