It’s no secret that Paramore has been going through a lot. From issues with band members to the return of some of the departed band members to a new album reflecting the struggles, it’s been a roller coaster for the popular rock band. Paramore has been on a successful tour capitalizing on the new album and during a recent performance, Hayley Williams took to the mic to thank fans for their continued support over the past year before she went into a song from the group’s latest album. The song which is called ’26’ is clearly an emotional song which Hayley describes as ‘the heart’ of the album’. Williams had a tough time making it through the song which includes the lyric ‘hold on to hope if you got it don’t let it go for nobody’. During the emotional performance, Hayley relied on the fans to help her get through the song.
“This song is what’s happening underneath all of it, its the heartbeat of the album.”
In a recent tweet, Hayley Williams mentioned that she had to thank God and count her blessings for the tour and success of the album as the band continues to heal from its past.
“God knows the world is dark and we have to seek out joy with fierce intention”

Paramore Releases Music Vdeo For Caught in the Middle
Yes we know we’re a day late but better late then never right?.
If you know us then it’s no secret that we here at Trevor Decker News are huge Paramore fans, so when we heard about their new music video we were elated.
The music video for Caught in the Middle marks the band’s 5th music video for the album cycle of After Laughter and it just might be the most abstract one yet.
The video depicts the band in a bowl of fruit which then turns into a very 80s psychedelic world where they’re suddenly being chased by the fruit.
Many fans were confused of the meaning behind the video. One fan said that the fruit may represent the band’s anxieties and recent struggles with their mental health, and with lyrics like
I’m just a little bit caught in the middle, gotta keep going but it’s not that simple. I’m just a little bit caught in the middle, gotta keep going or they’ll call me a quiter.
We can’t say that we disagree. What about you guys. What do you think? Check out the video for Caught in the Middle above.
Paramore Performs ‘Rose Colored Boy’ on Stephen Colbert
Last night on The late show with Stephen Colbert the band Paramore performed their latest single rose colored boy, and man did it feel like we stepped through a Time machine that took us straight to the eighties.
The performance served as a continuation to the ending of the music video for rose colored boy ( so if you haven’t seen it we suggest you do so before reading on)
The band was completely decked out in proper 80s attire complete with a retro set that included old school TVs.
The performance had a acapella stripped down feel to it bringing a whole new meaning to the term “doing it live”
If you missed this incredible performance you can check it out below
Paramore is set to begin the after laughter summer tour (tour 5) with Foster the people, kicking off on June 12th in Florida at the st. Augustine theater and ends July 24th in Morrison Colorado at the Red Rocks Theater.

Paramore’s Hayley Williams Breaks Into Praise & Worship During Live Performance

The group set sail on their third annual parahoy event this time it took place in the Bahamas. The band often brings back old favorites for fans and this was the case with the song “Let The Flames Begin”. The song is popular for its live rendition where Hayley Williams often adds a very spiritual outro to the song which is clearly a prayer to God and mentions Jesus.

Won’t you let it begin?
‘Cause I am here now,
I want to dance in
The mighty palm of your hand,
Paramore Releases Music Video For “Rose-Colored Boy”
Hayley is even bombarded with moments where she tells the viewers to just smile even though she’s been dealing with hardships in her own life
It’s in that moment where she realizes she can’t keep putting on this facade. By this point, Hayley breaks down completely and goes into full Rockstar mode with the rest of the band.
As longtime Paramore fans, we personally believe that this is the bands best video to date in their 13+ your career. The message of the video is something that most people can relate to because at one point or another we have all faked a smile
We think that it’s extremely Brave of the band to be so open about their struggles in hopes that it reaches more people and that they to get the help that they need.
The video that was directed by Waren Fu has only been out on the band’s official YouTube a little over an hour and has already reached over 25,000 views. If you haven’t seen it already please do yourself a favor and give it a watch.

Paramore Drops Music Video For “Told You So” & Announces First Televised Performance In 4 Years
If you’re like us and are Paramore fans then it has been an emotional whirlwind of a week for you. Just last week the band released their music video for “Hard times” the first new music from the band since 2013.
Yesterday the Nashville natives gave us yet another surprise. The trio premiered their song “Told you so” exclusively on Beats1 Radio with Zane Lowe and then simultaneously dropped the music video which already has over 2 million views in just one day.
The video was directed by drummer Zac Farro and friend of the band Aaron Joseph. In a recent interview with FADDER, the band discussed the feel behind the music video. Frontwoman Hayley Williams recalls the drives the band would take during the recording of this album. Mentioning how that fellow band mate Zac Farro noticed how sad she was during the recording process but it was the drives that made her most happiest. That’s what they wanted to capture going into the music video.
The video much like hard times has an 80’s vibe to it. Some fans even believe the videos are connected.
One theory sent into us by Michelle Infante explains how
“Something I noticed about Paramore’s latest videos…in Hard Times Haley wore red..and Zac and Taylor wore blue and yellow..and in Told You So as explained by Zac and Hayley..they’re showcasing their unity in the car scenes…So now they’re all wearing red…like Hard Times was showing the struggles Haley was going through and Told You So is them being like..we’re here for you friend.”
What do you guys think about this theory? Do you have your own interpretation of the music video?
