Lately, Paramore fans have been waiting around to hear new music from the band’s highly anticipated fifth studio album. On Thursday (Feb. 2), they got a jolt of good news from a much less expected source: original drummer, Zac Farro.

We already knew he was drumming on the new album, but he hadn’t been a full-fledged member since leaving (along with his brother Josh) on less-than-amicable terms back in 2010. Apparently his reconciliation with current members Hayley Williams and Taylor York is now complete. On Thursday afternoon, Paramore updated its official website to showcase a T-shirt featuring an image of young Zac Farro, along with the title “I’m Back.” Those on Paramore’s mailing list received emails with the headline “Zac’s Back,” so it’s safe to surmise he’s the one who’s rejoining and not his older brother (though we’re sure he was also a very adorable toddler).
