Weezer will be the special guests on The Simpsons this Sunday, May 10th, at 9pm EST / 8pm CST on Fox, and to hype up their appearance, the band is shown below playing their version of the iconic theme song in full animated glory.
As for the episode, well, it sounds incredible and the band will even be debuting a brand new song on the show.
The episode, entitled “The Hateful Eight Year-Olds,” sees Weezer voicing a cover band named Sailor’s Delight, who are the house band on a romantic cruise taken by Homer and Marge. Some of “Sailor’s Delight’s” songs in the episode will sound familiar to you, particularly if you were a fan of Weezer (The Black Album) or Pacific Daydream, but one song is completely new: debuting worldwide on The Simpsons, the track is called “Blue Dream,” and will be featured on the band’s forthcoming album, Van Weezer.
Tune in this weekend for the episode.
