A Perfect Circle star JOSH FREESE has signed up to temporarily replace ZAC FARRO in Paramore as the band plans a South American tour.
The drummer and band regular Taylor York's brother Justin have been drafted in to take over from the Farro brothers, Zac and Josh, who quit the group late last year (10).
The Farro siblings, who founded the group with singer Hayley Williams and bassist Jeremy Davis in 2004, left the band after a show in Orlando, Florida on 12 December (10), citing ongoing tensions between them, the frontwoman and management officials for the break-up.
In a tweet to fans, Williams is keen to make it clear that neither Freese nor York will become full-time members of the band: "(They're) just helping us for the South American tour."
The concerts begin with a date in Brazil in February (11).
