After splitting from Zac Farro and Josh Farro, Paramore are forced to find replacements since they are set to go on a tour across South America this year. Justin York is hired to serve as guitarist and take Josh's place, and Josh Freese is tapped to fill in Zac's shoes and play drums.
Instead of joining as permanent members, Justin and Josh are booked only for the upcoming South American tour. Frontwoman Hayley Williams wrote on Twitter, "Neither Josh freese nor Justin York are joining as members, just helping us for the South American tour :)"
Justin is a former guitarist of Tait and brother of Taylor York, while Josh has played for The Vandals and A Perfect Circle. They will kick off the tour with the three remaining members of Paramore beginning February 16 in Brazil and stay on the road with them at least until March.
Beside touring, Paramore are also preparing for a new album. In fact, they have started making demo. Hayley revealed, "Tonight (Taylor York) sent me the 1st official demo for me to write lyrics to. And I am so hopeful and motivated for the future!!"
