Paramore will be back in the studio to record their next album in LA as soon as this week, according to a twitter message from singer Hayley Williams.
"Just got a call from @itstayloryall [guitarist Taylor York], He and @schzimmydeanie [bassist Jeremy Davis] just touched down in LA! We're recording a couple new songs this week!" she exclaimed on the micro-blogging service.
These will be the first songs recorded since a less-than-amicable split from founding members Josh and Zac Farro last December.
A blog post from the departing members suggested there had been discontent in the group for some time, and that the recording label's financial interests lay with singer Hayley Williams. There was also concern that William's lyrics had begun to contradict their biblical faith.
The current group currently features former Tait guitarist Justin York and veteran drummer Josh Freese.
They recently debuted one of their new tracks "In The Mourning" as a show in Brazil, which you can watch the performance in the player below.
What do the UG-reading Paramore fans think - can they continue without founding members, or will they be better than ever?
