    Former Tait guitarist (and brother of Paramore's Taylor York) Justin York will take over for Josh Farro during Paramore's upcoming South American tour run, while veteran drummer Josh Freese of The Vandals, A Perfect Circle) will replace Zac Farro. Singer Hayley Williams revealed the news to fans on Twitter on Thursday of last week, explaining that "neither Josh Freese nor Justin York are joining as members, just helping us for the South American tour."

    The Brothers Farro exited Paramore rather non-amicably before the holidays, claiming that the business of Paramore is all about Hayley, Hayley, Hayley.

    Do you think Paramore will be stronger than ever once they permanently replace the departed Farro brothers? Or will this blow be brutal?
