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.
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.
