Ex-Paramore member Josh Farro forming new band
It was only a matter of time before the recently departed members from Paramore started their own thing. And that matter of time was two months for Josh Farro, who announced his new band, Novel American,
The guitarist told MTV news the material will be less on the pop-rock and –punk tip that dominates his old Hayley Williams-led band, and more atmospheric rock a la Radiohead, Explosions in the Sky and Sigur
Ros. The rest of American Novel is made up of singer Van Beasley, drummer Tyler Ward and bassist Ryan Clark.
The band is at work at a debut EP now.
Farro and his brother Zac made a very public exit from Paramore, accusing Williams of making the band all about her. Despite not being on the best terms with the group, he’s still eager to hear what they come up with after they tour South America and start a new record.
