Fueled By Ramen and GRAMMY Award winning recording group Paramore are set to release Rose-Colored Boy, the latest single from their fifth album After Laughter, on March 30th.
The delightfully tongue-in-cheek video for the song, shot in Los Angeles and directed by Warren Fu (The Weeknd, Haim), is streaming now here. Rose-Colored Boy is already on the C list at MTV, A list at Rocks and added to Box, Fresh, Kerrang A list, Scuzz and Chart Show TV.
The video has the band dressed as 1980’s US morning show hosts, with Hayley (Williams, vocals) commenting: ‘Honestly, this is what every morning seems like. Like there's something darker just behind all the bright eyes. I always think to myself, "That's gotta be vodka in those coffee mugs." Don't you agree? Sometimes I wanna whisper through the tv screen, "Blink twice if you need saving!” ‘
Having previously performed sold out shows at the O2 Arena, Wembley Arena, and co-headlined Reading & Leeds Festivals in 2014, the band played 5 ‘intimate’ shows across the UK to launch the new album in 2017, including a London date at the Royal Albert Hall. Paramore visited the UK most recently for five sold out arena shows in January of this year. They are currently on ‘Tour Four’, which sees the band visiting Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Philippines, Japan and Hawaii. Paramore will then set sail on their PARAHOY! Deep Search cruise, the sold out third installment of their hugely popular PARAHOY! vacation experience sailing round trip from Miami to Nassau, Bahamas from April 6th through 10th.
