Bristol pop-punk band Weatherstate is ready to make some noise, as the young band will release its debut full-length album, Born a Cynic, on May 10.

The band members hold their musical heroes in high esteem, and that has rarely been more apparent for any act than with the group’s new video for “Medicate.” Anyone who’s ever seen Green Day‘s classic ’90s clip for the 1994 single “Basket Case” will appreciate Weatherstate’s video, which more or less recreates Green Day’s video with an exceptionally impressive attention to detail.

The song is very catchy and engaging, too.

And here’s Green Day’s original. Notice the colors, the clothes Weatherstate’s members are wearing, shot angles, specific scenes … it’s pretty much all there.

You have to think Billie Joe Armstrong, Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt dig what these guys are doing, right? That’s a great, reverent tribute.

Here’s another song from Born a Cynic, “Brain Dead,” which was released previously:

Stay tuned for more from Weatherstate as the album nears.
