Last night, Paramore appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert for their TV debut performance of “Rose Colored Boy.” The theatrical performance called back to the band's morning news show-inspired music video for their newest single.

The music video for “Rose Colored Boy” is equal parts hilariously tongue-in-cheek and heartbreaking. A balance that carries throughout the band's 2017 album, After Laughter, which happens to be one of our favorite releases of 2017. The live performance also creates that tension by being upbeat and dancey while also feeling slightly unhinged. Check it out for yourself below. 

The band recently announced they'll be bringing Soccer Mommy and Jay Som along for the After Laughter Summer Tour in North America. 

The tour kicks off June 12 in St. Augustine, Florida, wrapping up July 24 in Morrison, Colorado. Plus, Paramore will be joined by Foster The People. An epic summer tour? We think yes. Check out the full list of cities and dates below!
