Weezer fans, rejoice! At long last, the band’s highly anticipated, near-mythical new album, Weezer (The Black Album), has a release date: March 1, 2019. Click HERE to pre-order it.
The album’s release date news comes with an amazing, second taste of the album, entitled “Zombie Bastards”
Weezer (The Black Album) was produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, with whom the band worked for the first time. The album’s songs were entirely written on piano by frontman Rivers Cuomo for the first time in Weezer history, creating some of the most satisfyingly awesome songs in the entire hits-filled Weezer catalogue. With band members switching up instruments in the studio, and choruses filtered through Sitek’s own encyclopedic musical references of everything from Gorillaz to Can to Pink Floyd, Weezer (The Black Album) is the bold next step in the winning streak of acclaimed albums they’ve released since 2014. “Zombie Bastards” is the follow up to the band’s recently released song and current single “Can’t Knock The Hustle.”
