>Hayley presented lyrics to us that were really negative and we didn’t agree with. For example, “the truth never set me free”, which contradicts what the Bible says in John 8:32 (“and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall sat you free”). We fought her about how her lyrics misrepresented our band and what we stood for, but in the end she got her way. Instead of fighting her any longer, we decided to just roll over and let it go.
>>114697942having a girl in your band is a double edge sword. on one hand it gives your band a lot of extra attention, but om the other she becomes the band amd de facto leader.
fuck the bible
>muh negativityBased Hayley.
>>114697942Hayley is a godless harlot, who knew?
>>114698495Hayley is a leftwing Christian, her bandmate was just a super-Christian autist who thinks you're literally going to burn in hell for a song lyric instead of just going to confession and saying a rosary
>>114697942Aging scene girls are pathetic.
>>114698023the vocalist is usually the band leader, yeah. don't know a band where a non-singing woman is the leader
>>114697942Perhaps she realized that religion is patriarchal bullshit. Why would a girl from Nashville care about what some bearded middle Asian guys from thousands of years wrote?
>>114697942>but in the end she got her waybeen that way since Adam ate that damn apple.
>>114697942OP is an excerpt from an old post by Josh Farro in 2010, founding member and former lead guitarist of Paramore. He founded the band with his brother Zac Farro.Here's the rest>Zac and I had a garage band in high school with the intentions of just making music for the love of it. We met Taylor and our friend Jason Clark at our school and found out that we shared the same musical tastes. So, we asked them to join our band. It was some of the greatest times of our lives playing music in Taylor’s basement with them. We obviously needed a lead singer and one day Zac met Hayley. We asked her to come try out and eventually to join the band.>>Months down the road things changed and this band became all about Hayley. She had a manager at the time that controlled her every move along with her parents. They didn’t like the idea of Hayley being in a rock band so they forced her to leave wanting her to pursue a solo career.>>Hayley went off to write and record her solo demos while the four of us continued on without her. A couple of months later Hayley came and asked us if she could use the song “Conspiracy” that we had all previously written together. We agreed that that would be fine. I got a call a while after that from Hayley telling me that her manager said that Zac and I were invited to be back in the band (the band we started), but not Taylor and Jason because they weren’t good enough in his eyes. Hayley brought in Jeremy and our first rhythm guitarist Jason Bynum as the other two members.
>>114699546>We travelled to LA a few weeks later for a showcase and it was a nightmare. Hayley’s manager would tell the band to be in the lobby of the hotel at a certain time, but he and Hayley wouldn’t show for hours. We found out that they had been meeting with record label executives all morning without us, which is totally weird given that this wasn’t simply a solo artist, but we were a band. The band was in the dark the whole time. After many meetings between Hayley, her manager and the labels they decided to sign her to Atlantic records. We didn’t understand why Hayley was the only one signing the contract since we were told this was a “band”, but we were too young to grasp all of this. So far, Zac and I haven’t signed with another label, although I guess our part of Paramore sure could. Next thing we knew we were having a signing party for Hayley.>>Our next move was to rerecord her solo demos with our own music rather than studio musicians to make it sound more genuine. Meanwhile, we tossed around band names. I wrote out a list of names, including “Paramore”, a name my old band with Taylor and Jason Clark had thought about using. Obviously, we settled on that name. The label received the rerecorded demos and once again tried to fire the entire band, saying we were terrible. Thankfully Hayley and I had been writing some new songs together (Hallelujah, Here We Go Again) that the label was pleased with so that acted as leverage for the band to stay. The label and management then decided to build our band up the grass-roots route. They put Hayley on Fueled by Ramen not making it known she was signed to Atlantic as well. All the while we still questioned whether or not we were an actual band, but Hayley continued to insist we were, despite our being ignored and pushed around by the label.
>>114699559>They then sent us all to Orlando to rehearse and write eight hours a day for our first record. Half -way though this process, Jeremy decided to quit. We were all really upset about it. So we finished the record, replaced Jeremy, and hit the road with Hayley’s father as our tour manager/driver of a twelve-passenger van. Her dad would constantly threaten to “pull the plug” on the whole band if we complained about anything, suggesting that we were hired guns and Hayley was the real artist, when in reality we were also part of the band. We’ve always been treated as less important than Hayley. It’s been obvious how her family views things.>>Jeremy ended up rejoining and we toured non-stop for two and half years building our fan base, pretending to be a band that started naturally. In reality, what started as natural somehow morphed into a manufactured product of a major label, riding on the coattails of “Hayley’s dream.”>>Before recording our next record, we kicked out Jeremy for his lack of work ethic and participation in things that Zac, Hayley and I didn’t agree with. At this point it was just the three of us to record Riot. Once the record was done, we needed a bassist and another guitarist. Eventually Zac and I convinced Hayley to let Taylor rejoin and she convinced us to let Jeremy back in, promising he had changed his ways.>>Once again we hit the road and toured on our biggest record as a band. As you all know Hayley and I dated and broke up during this album cycle. Things then started going downhill for our band. Hayley and Jeremy’s views started changing from what we all once believed in. The band almost split after cancelling a tour in Europe, but we managed to keep it together somehow. This is when Zac and I started to consider quitting the band.
>>114699576There's more but I'm too lazy to post the rest sorry. You can Google it if you're curious about the rest.
>>114699423Sonic youth even tho she also sang sometimes
>>114699466You sound like a faggot troon
honestly, why the fuck are they ultimately complaining? sure i get it from an artistic point of view but if hayley didn't get her way then they would still be playing shows and getting paid $25 bucks a night at shitholes hosting bands
Based fucking hayley taking control of this band of pussies
>>114699765not to mention that one retard who left the band and started an AWFUL rap career
sounds>>114699546>>114699559>>114699576sounds like a couple oafs got outplayed before the game even started lol
>>114699576They should have said no from the get-go. Their fault desu
>>114699546>They didn’t like the idea of Hayley being in a rock band so they forced her to leave wanting her to pursue a solo career.This makes it seems that they were more concerned about a solo career than her daughter being in an all males band>>114699576>As you all know Hayley and I dated and broke up during this album cycle.Wonder if that relationship was just to keep him under her control
>>114699576I mean, none of those guys are really that like unique instrumentation/musically-wise. Hayley was always the one who carried the band with her writing and singing. Like when I hear a Paramore song I don't go, man WHO is that drummer? I always focus on the vocalsThese niggas got cucked out of their own band just because they were too shit at playing a guitar.
>>114701340>Like when I hear a Paramore song I don't go, man WHO is that drummerthat's a you problem cause they do have a very good drummer.
>>114697942Paramore is such a weak Alt.Rock band. They took the sound of Emo, guitars from Thursday and diluted them as much as possible.
>>114699743He's probably just bitter about Hayley in general. Didn't they used to date?I mean, I'm certain he let her in the band originally just because he wanted to get in her panties, but that doesn't change that Hayley's by far the person most responsible for the band's superstar success. Nobody would've cared about the Farro Brothers if it weren't for her.Strong "Star is Born" energies from all of this.
>>114697942I want to aggressively bury my face in her pussy, maybe even slide my tongue up her ass too. I'm becoming erect just typing this out. Anyone else getting erect?
>>114702291Those who aren't getting erect are getting wet.
>>114697942Oh shut up, Fuck religion, If your gonna worship something worship Music & if they sing about God then sing along but dont take it seriously its just a fucking song, lmao Highway to Hell is about a road ACDC used to fear crashing on that was nicknamed route 666 because of the infamous 52 car pile up in the 70sStairway to Heaven is about a junky buying angel dust not giving a fuck if she lives or dies as long as she gets her fix, the backwards masking on the record was pretty weird though but it was just a cleaver joke people took seriously
>>114699576The simp defense force always shows for their precious Hayley, a vainglorious narcissist who was a popstar tricking impressionable fans that she was some sort of altgirl fronting a unified poppunk band.
>>114697942More like>we started making a shit ton of money so we let it go
>>114702450i've got religious family members that straight up won't listen to highway to hell just because hell's in the name. they claim that anyone who listens to it is going to hell. ironically they were drunkards and troublemakers in their youth before converting. religionfags are a trip man, which makes all the larping on this site even more hilarious cause it's all uninformed posing.
>>114697942Another Christcuck BTFO by based Hayley
>>114701397retarded twitter tier reply. do kill yourself soon
>>114698317Sound like a paramore fan lmao faggot
All this drama aside, Paramore is shit and boring and Williams' recent solo albums are very interesting.
>>114699584Post the rest I’m curious
>>114701397Based and blessed post
>>114704588Alright fine. There isn't much more anyway
>>114699576>>114704588>Once we finished touring on Riot, we came home for a break and started writing for Brand New Eyes. Hayley presented lyrics to us that were really negative and we didn’t agree with. (then the excerpt from the OP) >>114697942>>Hayley claimed that this record reunited us as band and made us grow closer together, when in reality we were all growing further apart. Suddenly the band had spilt into two sides. Touring became more difficult since we couldn’t agree on anything. The friendships our band once had were no longer existent. Amos 3:3 says, “Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction”. In addition to the band turmoil, touring had really taken its toll on us both. We left home at such a young age and missed taking part in normal teenage years. When you own part of a band and are constantly playing, you make sacrifices. Touring has taken its toll on our family members as well. I specifically remember many moments where our parents would break down in tears when we had to leave. It broke my heart. Seeing our siblings grow up so much during our absences was never easy either.>>After a lot a prayer and counsel Zac and I came to the decision that it was time to leave the band. We truly feel that God is leading us elsewhere and is going to do great things with us. The intention of this statement was not to belittle or disgrace the rest of the band, it was simply to clarify our decision for leaving and our desire to finally tell you guys the truth. We are still hoping to work out a friendly way to leave our part of Paramore intact with the remaining band members, including Hayley.>>We want to thank you guys for all of your love and support over the past 7 years. It’s been an honor creating and playing music for you. If music is what God calls us to in the future, we hope that you all will be a part of it.>>All of the glory be to God,>>Josh and ZacThat's the end. Josh ended up rejoining the band years later but idk why
>>114706963>Josh ended up rejoiningI mean Zac
>>114704543Petals for Armor is unironically good and Flowers for Vases had some decent songs on it, but I love Hayley so I'm also biased.

>>114699546>>114699559>>114699576>>114706963This just sounds like two suckers got played by the music industry and are upset things weren't like the rockstar fantasy they had in their minds.
>>114707291Yeah but none of them are as sexy as Haley!>implying this isn't the entire appeal of Paramore
>>114707054I agree. Fuck Paramore though.>>114708053Sure but it still is a huge leap in quality imo
I really commend Josh for taking his religion seriously. I used to play in my local scene and there is almost always a girl being pimped out by mommy and daddy thinking she's going to be the next Hayley at every fucking show. Truthfully, Paramore hasn't released jack shit worth listening to since Josh left the band. Say what you want but the guy knew how to write and arrange a pop rock song and obviously he was manipulated into a shit deal because he was a teenager. Everything Hayley has done since 2010 has been shit, and inevitably she will bow to the fans and do the full on reunion.
