Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams has said that fans should not take the band's single 'Monster' as an indication of what the Tennessee pop punkers next studio album will sound like.

Speaking to Spanish website Rockzone, the singer said that she did not believe 'Monster' was a clear signpost to what the follow-up to 2009's 'Brand New Eyes' will contain.

Asked about whether the track, which was released as part of the soundtrack for Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, is a hint about the sound the band hope to capture on their next LP, Williams said: "I can't really say that 'Monster' is an indication of what to expect on the next Paramore album. We, as a band, will always try to evolve and try new things. It will be different for sure, but it will still keep Paramore's essence."

Williams also confirmed that Paramore would remain as herself, guitarist Taylor York and bassist Jeremy Davis for the foreseeable future and that they were not looking for permanent replacements for the Farro brothers, who left the band in December last year.

She said:

We are not in the process of looking out for new members right now. The band is Jeremy, Taylor and I. We don't spend too much time thinking about how Paramore will be in the future. It's hard when you go through a period of changing members so what we want to do right now is play great songs.

Williams also said that life for the band without the Farro brother is "not that different", but that the three of them have now become a "really strong unit."

The band have also responsed to questions over their future by selling a new t-shirt on their current tour that reads "Paramore is STILL a band."
