Davis's departure means the band are two-piece, consisting of singer Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.
In a statement released on their Facebook page, the band said: "Jeremy is no longer going to be in the band with us. To be honest, this has been really painful. After taking time to consider how to move forward, we ultimately found that we really do believe Paramore can and should continue on. And so we will."
They continued: "We’re really thankful for the people who have helped see us through hard times before and what we’ve discovered is that those people are just as much a part of this as we will ever be. We’re hopeful for Paramore’s future and we’re also excited for what Jeremy’s going to do next. Thank you all for your support and your belief in us."
Paramore are currently working on the follow-up to their self-titled album, which you can preview and purchase on the right-hand side of the page.
