Love it or hate it, Paramore are now embracing a quirky pop style for their fifth LP, After Laughter. The band have released their second single, “Told You so,” and accompanying music video.
The band’s fifth LP marks the return of founding drummer Zac Farro, who wrote and directed the video for “Told You So.” With help from Aaron Joseph, he based it on the band’s car rides after recording sessions in L.A.
In an interview with FADER, singer Hayley Williams, said they used Zac’s actual car for filming, and shot the rest at guitarist Taylor York’s house with a bunch of friends. “There’s darkness and suspense and then there’s a sense of unity in the full band shots in the car,” she said, “where we all wear red and dance together to the music.”
After Laughter will be available May 12th on Fueled By Ramen.
