Former Paramore drummer Zac Farro has spoken about he and his brother Josh's departure from the band and the fallout that followed, revealing that Josh has now attempted to make amends for his part in the media storm that came after.

The pair left Paramore in December of 2010 and, in the days after, Josh Farro slammed singer Hayley Williams in an online blog.

The guitarist said in his blog that everybody in the band except Williams "were hired guns and Hayley was the real artist, when in reality we were also part of the band. We've always been treated as less important than Hayley."

He went onto write that he believes Williams is being manipulated by her management, writes blasphemous lyrics and makes false statements about the band's unity.

Speaking exclusively to NME about this, Farro's younger brother Zac said that the guitarist had attempted to make amends with the rest of the band and though he knew they "were still not fond of him", he had made peace with them.

Asked about the blog, Farro said: "Josh definitely regrets being so emotional right after he left. He stands by what he believes, but he has tried to make peace with everyone in the band about that letter. I know they're still not fond of him because it was so hurtful."

He continued: "Both he and I don't want to act like we were never a part of that, we're still very proud of it. Neither of us want them to break up."

Zac Farro releases his debut EP as HalfNoise on Monday (October 1). You can hear the fourth track from the EP, which is titled 'Free The House', at the bottom of the page. For more information about the EP, visit Xtramilerecordings.com.
