Summer is the perfect time for a road trip, but not all of us have access to a camper and a cadre of eccentric friends who are also dying to pay a visit to Graceland and the world's largest ball of twine. So why not take a trip down the historic Route 66 at the movies, with The Perfect Age of Rock 'n' Roll, an indie opening August 5 both in select theaters and on-demand. Starring Kevin Zegers and Jason Ritter as two childhood friends reuniting their band and healing old wounds years after they found success with their band, the movie is crammed full of music, with both live performances from blues legends like Pinetop Perkins and Sugar Blue and a soundtrack featuring Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley, Muddy Waters and many more.

Neil Young also plays a key role on the soundtrack, as you can see in the exclusive red-band clip below. The two guys, Spyder and Eric, are crammed into a camper van with the legendary impresario August West (played by the legendary Peter Fonda) and their manager Rose (Taryn Manning), and to kill time on the road they play their favorite game, Name That Tune. In the clip below you get a sense of the dynamic between the band members, and also the chance to drive down the road again with Easy Rider's Peter Fonda. Take a look at the clip below, and below that the synopsis for the film. For more information and information on where to find The Perfect Age of Rock 'n' Roll, visit the official site.

World famous rock star Spyder (Kevin Zegers – Transamerica, Frozen) has achieved fame and fortune with a smash hit debut album. This blinding success however, is built on the Faustian pact that capitalized on the genius of his long lost childhood best friend and band mate, Eric Genson (Jason Ritter – NBC’s The Event, Good Dick). Now Spyder retreats to his small hometown after his sophomore effort flops. Reconnecting with Eric after a seven year estrangement, the two recall their youthful ambitions and reexamine the choices they’ve made. Accompanied by the band’s ambitious, fiery manager (Taryn Manning – ABC’s Hawaii 5-0, Hustle & Flow, 8 Mile), the legendary music impresario August West (Peter Fonda – Easy Rider, 3:10 to Yuma) and a raucous crew of musicians, they set off on a cathartic journey along historic Route 66 that brings them closer to each other, their history and their destiny. Fueled by a stellar rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack that includes songs by Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Iggy & The Stooges, Alice in Chains, Muddy Waters, The Violent Femmes, Howlin’ Wolf, Jane’s Addiction, and many more, The Perfect Age of Rock ‘N’ Roll fully captures the energy, rebellion, and thrills of the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle.

The Perfect Age of Rock ‘N’ Roll also stars Lukas Haas, Kelly Lynch, Lauren Holly, Ruby Dee, Billy Dee Williams, Michael K. Williams, James Ransone and Aimee Teegarden.
