    Former Paramore guitarist Josh Farro is already back in the saddle with a new band called Novel American. The band is comprised of a group of Farro's friends from high school, and their sound is expected to be eclectic. Farro told MTV News that they chose the band name because "the definition means 'Of a new kind, or something that hasn't been seen or heard before.' And I think that kind of describes us. We want to be a new breath of fresh air to the music scene. We all love Jimmy Eat World, so it's hard not to sound like them, but there's a little of everything in there. We're huge fans of Radiohead, Sigur Rós, Explosions in the Sky... there's everything in there, really." The group is planning to record an EP and "play some shows around town" to start.

    Are you a Paramore fan planning to check out Novel American?
