Weeks before Paramore released a new studio album, After Laughter, Zac Farro was promoting his, at that time, new EP The Velvet Face and said he might find it hard to record something new for Halfnoise while he’s busy in Paramore.
Looks like he is now using a break Paramore is having between Tour Two and the US summer shows to record new tunes.
He is currently in the recording studio. Today he posted a video presenting both Hayley Williams and Taylor York helping him in the recording process! Click HERE to watch the video. Are we going to get a new duet between Zac and Hayley? Who knows!
