A lot of people questioned the future of Tennessee pop punkers Paramore after former guitarist Josh Farro and his brother, and ex-drummer, Zac departed from the band last December. Lead lady Hayley Williams maintains that the group will not permanently fill in the void left by the Farro brothers.....yet.

Speaking to Spanish website Rockzone, (via NME), Williams says that the group (consisting of guitarist Taylor York, bassist Jeremy Davis and herself) only wants to think about Paramore's present.

"We are not in the process of looking out for new members right now," said the singer. "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."

Speaking of music, Hayley also confirmed that Paramore have four diverse songs for the new record, with some being vastly different from their latest single, "Monster", off of the soundtrack for Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

"We have written four new songs and they are quite diverse," Williams said. "There are some heavier songs, but there's also one that we plan to play live soon that is called 'In The Morning Mess'."

Williams continued: "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."
