Weezer announce new album Van Weezer and share new song

A new Weezer record will enter the world on 15 May 2020 via Atlantic / Crush – and it will be christened Van Weezer.

This confirms frontman Rivers Cuomo's promise in a February 2019 interview with Entertainment Weekly that it'll be packed with "big guitars" and will be "Blue Album-ish, but a little more riffy".

The forthcoming album follows the Teal and Black albums, the band's 12th and 13th albums respectively, both of which were released this year.

In the same interview, Cuomo revealed that Van Weezer was inspired by the joyous reception with which the audience greeted his guitar solos when the band performed live. The first taste of what all this sounds like was also released today in the form of lead single 'The End of the Game', whose accompanying music video stars indie rock outfit Cherry Glazerr.
