Crazy as it seems, it’s been 12 long years since Paramore released its frenziedly promising debut album All We Know Is Falling. Hayley Williams, Zac Farro, and the rest of the band were all high school-aged then so even now, they’re in their twenties, like deceptively young NBA veterans who got drafted as wunderkind teenagers. But their first album is indeed a dozen years old, and yesterday they cracked open the archives to celebrate.

Williams tweeted out video of a live performance of an ancient (by Paramore standards) track called “Temporary,” which was never formally released. We unfortunately don’t get a clear view of Zac’s old scene hair cut, but there are plenty of very 2005 fashions to be seen in this one. Check it out below.

From the band’s official account, Paramore shared a bunch of old photos from the early days as well.

“Temporary” is among a horde of old Paramore songs that’ve never been released, though a pair of All We Know Is Falling-era tracks, “O Star” and “This Circle,” were finally included on the album’s 10-year vinyl reissue.
