December is going to mark five years since Paramore lost two original members. While the pop-punk band have managed to get bigger in that time frame, the Farro brothers (Josh and Zac) have remained quiet. Now, it appears that Josh has decided to return to music under the monkier Farro.
On Wednesday (Nov. 4), the former Paramore guitarist released his first new song; a track titled “Cliffs.” The song made its debut over at Billboard and can be heard over there or below.
To coincide with the debut of the song, the publication sat down with the musician to ask him a couple of questions including whether his brother is playing with him (that was a no, but he did help with the recording process) and if he keeps in contact with his former band mates. Considering the way Farro and his brother left the band, we weren’t at all surprised when he said no without actually saying no to Billboard’s question.
“We didn’t end on the best terms, but everything is cool now,” he said.
“It’s taken a lot of time. It’s like an ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend. My ex-girlfriends from high school, I don’t still hang out with them. It’s pretty rare that you’re like, ‘Oh, we’re still great friends.’ Usually when you have a breakup, you part ways, although I wish it wasn’t like that. I strongly believe there will be a day where we’re sitting back and laughing about the past and everything. It just takes some time to heal from a breakup like that. I can definitely say from my end, there’s no hard feelings and I feel like that’s a mutual feeling from both sides.”
