Zac Farro was a recent guest on Billboard’s Alt In Our Stars podcast where he talks about drumming on the upcoming Paramore album, his HalfNoise project and his musical background. You can listen to the show below.

“It’s a second chance,” Farro says. “I’m so thankful that I’m playing on the album, but that wasn’t what was important to me at the beginning. What was important was mending those friendships… Hayley and [guitarist] Taylor [York] have become really good friends of mine again and they’re super supportive of my stuff.”
