Watch Paramore Evade Giant Fruit in Wild ‘Caught in the Middle’ Video
Band plots special hometown concert featuring other Nashville artists in September
Paramore navigate a strange world of cheesy special effects and giant fruit in the new video for “Caught In the Middle.” The track appears on the band’s latest album, After Laughter.
The Computer Team-directed clip makes use of a variety of old school effects that match the song’s clever mix of New Wave and pop-punk. In the video, Paramore are transported to a day-glo universe where they dance through surreal landscapes filled with melting rocks and massive apples, oranges and pears.
Paramore also announced a special concert set to take place September 7th in their hometown of Nashville, Tennessee at the Municipal Auditorium. “Paramore Art + Friends” will feature a headlining set from Paramore as well as performances from other local artists Bully, Coin, Canon Blue, Liza Anne and Nightingail.
“We want to celebrate our hometown and the fast growing, wacky and wonderful alternative music and arts community of Nashville,” singer Hayley Williams said of the event. “We want to show you what our fine city has to offer, outside of bachelorette parties and karaoke bars…Take it from a group of kids who grew up right here in this city – the new Nashville is definitely alright with us. We’re excited to give everyone a chance to experience Nashville the way we do.”
