Paramore look set to reunite with former drummer Zac Farro.
Rumours about Farro, who left the band in 2010 after a six-year stint, rejoining the fold have been gathering piece in recent weeks, with the Hayley Williams-fronted band dropping hints about his involvement through various posts on social media. One such post, made over the weekend, on the band’s official Twitter account has now appeared to confirm that the drummer is indeed back working with the band.
Posted along with the words “Lunch is over//Making an album”, Farro is clearly visible in the accompanying shot behind the drum kit in Paramore’s studio.
See the full tweet below.

Farro’s return to action comes after Paramore touring drummer Aaron Gillespie clarified his role in the band back in February, telling DIY that he wouldn’t record with the band on their new album.
While the record itself is still in development – Paramore only confirmed in January that they were writing music – fans of the band have reacted positively to the news that the founding member has rejoined the band for these studio sessions. See a selection of that reaction below.
