The band appears in their first clip since the sudden departure of two founding members.

Last month, Paramore's newest single, "Monster," hit airwaves as part of the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack. The song is their first since losing two founding band members, Josh and Zac Farro, last December.

Their new music video, which premiered on MTV, finds the three remaining members trying to escape a desolate hospital. Frontwoman Hayley Williams belts out, "I'll stop the whole world from turning into a monster and eating us alive. Don't you ever wonder how we survived? Now that you're gone, the world is ours."

The video quickly became a trending topic on Twitter, with fans around the world singing the group's praises.
