The saying goes “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” and for Weezer, they just showed their they respect for rock icons Guns ‘N’ Roses in one of the few ways they could. On Thursday (July 27), the California-founded band unveiled another video for their current summer jam, “Feels Like Summer.” The clip finds the guys getting in touch with their inner “Paradise City” side for the full clip. From the black-and-white shots of the group as well as the huge crowd at the show to the Axl Rose and Slash attires, the viewer can see, and chuckle, at how the group decided to pay homage to one of the most iconic rock bands around.
The music video for the new track was shot during the group’s appearance at Goldenvoice’s inaugural Arroyo Seco Weekend music festival in late June. Watch the music video for “Feels Like Summer” above.
“Feels Like Summer” is the first single off of Weezer’s upcoming new album. Though the album name has yet to be confirmed, the band teased last year that it would be given the moniker of The Black Album and would be a lot darker and gritty than The White Album.
While no official release date has been given for the group’s eleventh studio album, the band said back in March that the new album would be released in the summer of 2017. Sadly, the summer is almost over and all fans of the group have been given are several different versions of the same song.
In support of the song, and its multiple releases, the group will be hitting the road once again this fall. Their upcoming tour schedule will pick up with their appearance at The Big Feastival in Oro-Medonte, Canada on Aug. 20 and wrap up Oct. 28 at the Wembley Arena in London. The full list of upcoming tour dates can be seen below.
