Aaron Gillespie to Drum for Paramore on Tour

Paramore-2013

News that Aaron Gillespie, former drummer for Underoath and frontman of The Almost  would be taking over the drumming duties during Paramore’s upcoming tour has slightly been exaggerated by social media. Paramore just confirmed that the sticksman would only be filling in during selected dates of the tour while in Europe.

The band’s live drummer, Miles McPherson had gotten seriously injured in a golf cart accident where he lost control of a golf cart, which flipped on top of him and dragged him by the face for approximately 20 feet. It’s only safe to assume that due to McPherson’s injuries, Gillespie will be on the tour for a little while.

Rumors began earlier today when Paramore posted on their Instagram a picture of a red trunk with Underoath written on it as well as what looks like bright yellow electric tape with Paramore written in black sharpie. This only led to the talk that someone form Underoath would be joining and eventually  they confirmed it would be Gillespie.
