Paramore have revealed that they have begun work on their new album, even though brothers Josh and Zac Farro only left the band last month.

Singer Hayley Williams announced the news on Twitter.

"Tonight (December 30) @itstayloryall [guitarist Taylor York] sent me the 1st official demo for me to write lyrics to," she said. "And I am so hopeful and motivated for the future!!"

The album will be the group's fourth studio effort and is the follow-up to 2009's 'Brand New Eyes'.

Meanwhile, the band have also confirmed that Justin York and drummer Josh Freese will join the group on a temporary basis for their upcoming tour of South America.

Since leaving Paramore, former guitarist Josh Farro has slammed singer Hayley Williams.

On his blog he wrote that he believes she is being manipulated by her management, writes blasphemous lyrics and has made false statements about the band's unity.
