Watch Paramore’s Sprightly Live Cover of the Strokes’ ‘Someday’

Band covered indie-rock classic in Nashville, ahead of releasing new LP, ‘After Laughter’

Paramore performed a high-energy live version of the Strokes‘ classic single “Someday” Thursday in Nashville, Pitchfork reports.

In the fan-shot clip, Hayley Williams swoops to her lower register, parading around the stage in comically large pink glasses. Her bandmates recreate the swinging, open hi-hats and chugging, high-octave guitar riffs from the Strokes’ original track, featured on their acclaimed debut LP, 2001’s Is This It.

Paramore’s fifth LP, After Laughter, is out today, May 12th. The album, which marks the return of original drummer Zac Farro, features previously issued singles “Told You So” and “Hard Times.”

The band will mark the release with a CD-signing event tonight at Nashville’s staple record store, Grimey’s. Their May itinerary also includes a Jimmy Kimmel Live! performance on the 17th and a spot three days later at the KROQ Weenie Roast y Fiesta in Carson, California. On June 15th, the band will launch a European tour in Dublin, Ireland, followed by a string of U.S. festival dates, including the Chicago installment of this year’s Riot Fest.
