Published Oct 23, 2015While it may not be the timeliest of drops, Oakville's Dead Broke are using a cover of Queens of the Stone Age's intoxicating "Feel Good Hit of the Summer" to promote their forthcoming late fall tour. You can find the Canadian crew tackling the desert rock classic via a recently filmed in-studio performance.
The younger punk crew go for broke in the black and white clip, which was filmed at Toronto's Taurus Recording facility. Playing it, ahem, on the nose, they deliver a straight forward but screamy salute to the originally Josh Homme-sung ode to nicotine, Vicodin, Valium, marijuana, ecstasy and alcohol. Also saluted: the c-c-c-c-c-cocaine.
Should you want to get a contact high from the performance, you can peep it below, where you'll also find the band's U.S. tour itinerary.
The video was shot by local photographers Britt Farhat (Royal Mountain Records), Yoshi Cooper (Yosh Photography) and Josh Carlan (Aesthetic Magazine), while the session was engineered and mixed producer Crispin Day (METZ, July Talk) and mastered by Jon Drew (fucked up, Career Suicide).
