Though their ballad "The Only Exception" continues to be a top 40 staple, [artist id="1968732"]Paramore[/artist] have already unveiled the video for the next single from their Brand New Eyes album, the snarling "Careful."
And, given how alive the song is, it's fitting that the accompanying video features nothing but live footage of the making of Eyes and subsequent tour. Directed by Brandon Chesbro (who also did the video for "Exception"), the "Careful" clip is packed with scenes shot throughout the BNE cycle, including recording sessions in Rob Cavallo's California studio, their world tour and their just-wrapped spring jaunt with Relient K and Fun. So we get to see the band rocking stages big and small (and massive), along with a healthy amount of backstage high jinks thrown in for good measure.
And though the video premiered on Paramore.net, it's very much the official clip, according to a spokesperson for their label, Atlantic/ Fueled by Ramen.
And while the "Careful" video will live online for the immediate future, Paramore will return to the live setting next week, with a string of summer festival gigs in Europe and Scandinavia that stretches into early July. And after that, they'll roar back to the States in late July as the headlining act on the Honda Civic Tour, along with Tegan and Sara, New Found Glory and Kadawatha.
