Paramore guitarist Josh Farro will not be touring with the band on their forthcoming tour dates due to marriage commitments, he has announced.

Writing on his blog at Paramore.net, Farro revealed that he would be replaced on the dates by Justin York – brother of other Paramore guitarist Taylor.

The band are set to play Osaka on Wednesday (February 10), with further Asian and US tour dates scheduled through until May. Farro did not reveal when he would return to the live fold.

"Weird as it is to stay behind, I need to take some time off to plan the wedding and everything," Farro, recently engaged, explained. "Because of that I will not be joining the guys on the Pacific rim tour coming up.

"The band has been extremely supportive and gracious to me about all of this which has made it a lot easier. Justin York, Taylor's brother, will be filling in for me as a favour. He's an awesome dude, you all will love him… I will be back soon!"
