Paramore Dig a Grave in Video for “Brick By Boring Brick”

During a recent visit to Rolling Stone, Paramore’s Hayley Williams was reluctant to talk about the new video for the band’s Brand New Eyes single “Brick By Boring Brick” — to be fair, Williams was reluctant to talk in general, as she was still suffering from laryngitis — hoping instead to keep the band’s long-in-the-works clip under wraps. But now the secret is out and the video is streaming on Paramore’s official Website.

The CGI-heavy, autumn-washed video finds a young girl wearing butterfly wings and carrying a doll — apparently a representation of Hayley’s own psyche — running carelessly around a dream world while the now-blonde Hayley sings alongside a newly dug grave. Midway through, the dream world gets dark and rainy as the young girl confronts evil mirrors and ravenous vines that try to terrify the girl into waking up. In the end, however, the young girl falls into the fresh grave and Hayley looks on as dirt is poured on the girl. It’s gloomy stuff to match the darker tone of the Brand New Eyes material, but considering 19 out of 20 Paramore fans are also avid Twilighters, we think they can handle it.
