Paramore are out and about right now, bringing their new album This Is Why to the world. From supporting Taylor Swift in Glendale to making their way across South America, they are having the time of their lives.

And that joy has been bottled via a live video bringing together footage from their trip across the southern continent. Performing This Is Why highlight “You First” in everywhere from Sao Paulo to Brazil to Columbia, the video shows off a band functioning at the height of its powers, with the energy and enthusiasm of a collective out on tour for the very first time. But the catalyst for such exuberance appears to be the reactions from the crowds they are playing in front of. Bouncing off each other wonderfully, it makes for a joyous watch.

This Is Why is out now via Warner Records, and is quite simply astonishing.

Here’s the already classic title track, alongside a video directed by Turnstile’s Brandon Yates:
