    Farro Brothers…. Out! That was my best Ryan Seacrest impression! Paramore announced that guitarist Josh Farro and drummer Zac Farro -- two founding members of the pop-punk group -- are leaving the band, confirming the gossip that the Internet earlier in the week about the brothers' departure.

    On their official website, the remaining members of Paramore wrote : "A couple of months ago, Josh and Zac let us know they would be leaving the band after our show in Orlando last Sunday. 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."

    Wow, there was a bit of tension in that statement, in my opinion. What do you think? Are you bummed about this news or do you think Paramore will rebound better and stronger than ever?
