The 50 best albums of 2023
The Kerrang! verdict on the 50 albums that shaped 2023.
Paramore and Jeremy Davis (middle) have parted ways.
Remaining members Hayley Williams and Taylor York will be continuing on without the bassist, saying in a message to their fans: “After taking time to consider how to move forward, we ultimately found that we really do believe Paramore can and should continue on. And so we will.”
Read the full statement below:
“These last few years have held some of the most fulfilling moments we’ve had yet… as people, as friends, and as a band. The Self-Titled era was one that we knew would be important for us but also one we’d eventually have to move on from. In moving forward, there is growth, pain, and change… and sometimes the change is not at all what you hoped for. We’ve written and re-written this countless times and there’s just not a good way to put it… Jeremy is no longer going to be in the band with us. To be honest, this has been really painful. After taking time to consider how to move forward, we ultimately found that we really do believe Paramore can and should continue on. And so we will.
“We’re really thankful for the people who have helped see us through hard times before and what we’ve discovered is that those people are just as much a part of this as we will ever be. We’re hopeful for Paramore’s future and we’re also excited for what Jeremy’s going to do next. Thank you all for your support and your belief in us. It’s kept us going. We will see some of you really soon on Parahoy. If you’re not coming on the cruise, we will still see you in 2016.”
