Josh Farro Forms “Novel American”February 23rd, 2011 | Drew Bartlett
“Basically, I met these guys in high school — they’re a little older than me, and that’s a big deal when you’re in high school, they were always in the cool crowd — but we connected after high school, and we got together after the whole Paramore thing, and I was like, ‘I don’t know if I want to be in another band,’ ” Farro told MTV News. “But I called the guys, we got together, we wrote and we jammed, and it was great, so we decided, ‘Let’s do another band.’ And, honestly, I had some ideas that just didn’t fit with Paramore, and I said, ‘Guys, we can try these,’ and they just loved them, and so that’s really how it all started.”
In the second interview Josh said:
“It just kind of happened, and it just felt right, this new band. I prayed a lot about it, and I felt peace about it, so I was like, ‘I’m going to do it,’ ” he told MTV News. “It came totally unexpected. It’s probably kind of hard for a lot of fans, like, ‘Oh, he’s already moving on,’ that sort of thing. But it’s for the best. Paramore’s doing their thing, me and Zac are going to do our things, it’s going to be great. … It’s for the best.”
