Hayley and Zac sat down with The Fader to explain the approach behind the “Told You So” music video. You can read the meaning of the music video below.
The best thing about this month is that on the 12th there’ll be a new Paramore album. Called After Laughter, the band’s fifth LP heralds both the return of founding drummer Zac Farro and a new summer season to be spent emoting to glorious pop-punk. (Or maybe they’re actually doing something sunny-funk now?)
In fact, Zac wrote and directed today’s 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. “Zac noticed that my anxiety and overall state was just a lot more peaceful on those drives,” lead singer Hayley Williams told The FADER, “and mentioned to me that it made him happy to see me rest for a moment. It means a lot that they conceptualized a video around a passing moment we had as friends.”
She 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.”
“‘Told You So’ is such a visual song to me,” Zac said. “The rhythms and lyrics caught my attention from day one. So I knew the music video needed to be equally as striking and rhythmic.”
According to several radio stations, they will have “new Paramore” to play around 8:30am. The song is speculated to be entitled “Hardtimes” by these stations. Although numerous stations have tweeted about this, there is no official statement from the band. However, the band did update their profile pictures with the completed final image that they have been teasing us with for the past couple days.

Paramore have yet again revealed another part to the image that the band’s social media accounts have had as their profile picture for the past couple of days.
Is Paramore slowly revealing the cover to ‘5more’? Or is it the cover to a new single? A new logo? What is the final piece going to look like and what does it mean? Hopefully, our questions will be answered soon. Make sure to continue to keep a close eye on all of Paramore’s social media accounts!
Below, you can find some of our favourite fan completed versions of the mysterious profile picture.

We’ve been getting a lot of questions regarding Paramore’s fanmail address. The band does not have a PO box, but you can send mail to their record label in New York.
We do not guarantee that you will get anything back from the band or that the band sees any of it, but you can always try! Make sure to include a self-addressed, self-stamped envelope and international reply coupons (IRC), or if you live in the US, just a regular stamp will do. This MIGHT increase your chances of getting something back. The band appreciates fanmail, but due to their busy schedules, they might not have the chance to reply.
Use the following address to send Paramore fanmail:
Fueled By Ramen

Please know all the mail gets screened before it’s passed onto Paramore so keep it appropriate!
