To support its new, self-titled album (“The Black Album”), Weezer makes an appearance on Tuesday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

The veteran modern rock band, naturally, takes the stage for the show-closing musical performance.

Earlier in the broadcast, the band members also participate in a Weezer-themed edition of the recurring “Ragtime Gals” sketch.

Taped in advance, Tuesday’s “Tonight Show” additionally features interviews with Tyler Perry and Sarah Hyland. Fallon and some special guests also treat the audience to a “Tonight Showbotics” technology demonstration.
