Paramore Narrowly Escape Destruction in New ‘Monster’ Video
The three-piece begins half-submerged in water, echoing the imagery of the first verse of the song in which Hayley Williams sings: "You were my conscience / So solid, now you're like water / And we started drowning / Not like we'd sink any farther / But I let my heart go / It's somewhere down at the bottom."
Spliced between performance shots, the band is shown an abandoned hospital. Lights are exploding with increasing frequency, and each member starts running. Finally, they converge and sprint through the building, ending up at a dead end.
'Monster' is the group’s first song since the departure of founding members Josh and Zac Farro. It was one of three featured songs from the 'Transformers 3' soundtrack, including Linkin Park's 'Iridescent' and Goo Goo Dolls' 'All That You Are.'
Paramore has been nominated for Choice Rock Group and Choice Rock Track for 'Monster' at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards. The band is also scheduled to perform several show this summer, including select dates on the 2011 Vans Warped Tour and a performance at New York City’s Terminal 5 on Sept. 7 for the first night of the Fueled By Ramen 15th Anniversary shows.
