Earlier today, a Paramore fan’s Twitter account spilled the beans on who would play drums for them on their fall tour. The drummer is former drummer for Underoath and current guitarist/vocalist for The Almost, Aaron Gillespie; the tweet saying such was confirmed by Gillespie. This may come as a surprise to some, as The Almost had only recently released their last album and one would’ve assumed they’d try to tour throughout the remainder of the year, but I guess we can perhaps start considering Gillespie a scene Dave Grohl. Love or hate his music, he’s got a pretty badass resume.
Paramore fans may recall that Zac Farro left the band in 2010 and they have lacked a true drummer since. Recently, on tour and on the album, Nine Inch Nails drummer Ilan Rubin has filled in; with Nine Inch Nails touring this fall, they had to find another replacement. See the band’s tweet after the jump.

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
