HalfNoise is an American rock band formed by Paramore's drummer Zac Farro in 2010.


HalfNoise was created two days after Zac Farro's departure from Paramore, under the original name "Tunnel". Zac took part in this new project, along with Jason Clark, releasing a song called "Hide Your Eyes

Farro and Clark had earlier been together in a band with Taylor York and Farro's brother Josh Farro prior to Paramore. The duo then renamed themselves "HalfNoise" due to other bands being named "Tunnel". In March 2011, it was announced that Farro would be joining his brother's band Novel American, but would still continue to take part in HalfNoise.


Farro has stated that some of his influences include: Jimmy Eat World, Radiohead, Death Cab for Cutie, Mew, Paper Route, Sigur Ros, Supercar, Thrice, Sunny Day Real Estate, and múm. Farro has been influenced by Dave Grohl (former drummer of Nirvana and current singer/songwriter of Foo Fighters and drummer for Them Crooked Vultures), William Goldsmith (former drummer of Sunny Day Real Estate and Foo Fighters, replaced by Taylor Hawkins) and Riley Breckenridge (drummer for the band, Thrice).
