Founding Member Leaves Paramore; No Longer In The Business Of Misery
We here at BLUNT aren’t fans of pissing in your cereal, but we’ve got some bad news. You might want to be sitting down for this. Paramore have just announced that bassist and founding member Jeremy Davis has left the band.
The pop rockers released a statement on their Facebook page explaining that the longtime member, who’s been cranking out the hits with the band since they formed in 2004, is no longer part of the trio. Although a specific reason has yet to be given, there doesn’t seem to be any bad blood between them. Whatever the case, the act will be continuing forward with their upcoming cruise, Parahoy, which is due to set sail in March of next year.
Check out the Paramore’s full statement below:
These last few years have held some of the most fulfilling moments we’ve had yet… as people, as friends, and as a band. The Self-Titled era was one that we knew would be important for us but also one we’d eventually have to move on from. In moving forward, there is growth, pain, and change… and sometimes the change is not at all what you hoped for. We’ve written and re-written this countless times and there’s just not a good way to put it… Jeremy is no longer going to be in the band with us. To be honest, this has been really painful. After taking time to consider how to move forward, we ultimately found that we really do believe Paramore can and should continue on. And so we will.
We’re really thankful for the people who have helped see us through hard times before and what we’ve discovered is that those people are just as much a part of this as we will ever be. We’re hopeful for Paramore’s future and we’re also excited for what Jeremy’s going to do next. Thank you all for your support and your belief in us. It’s kept us going. We will see some of you really soon on Parahoy. If you’re not coming on the cruise, we will still see you in 2016.
