Weezer have dropped a brand new single titled “The End of the Game.” It’s from the band’s subsequent document Van Weezer. Suzy Shinn produced the monitor. Take a look at the music and its music video (directed by Danilo Parra) under.
Van Weezer is about to reach on May 15, 2020 (by way of Crush/Atlantic). In an interview with Darren Franich for Leisure Weekly earlier this 12 months, frontman Rivers Cuomo stated the album goes “back to big guitars” and is “Blue Album-ish, but a little more riffy.”
Cuomo continued, “The inspiration came from our live shows, where, in the middle of ‘Beverly Hills,’ unlike on the album, everything stops and I just break out with this crazy guitar solo. We noticed that, recently, the crowd just goes crazy when I do that. So it feels like maybe the audience is ready for some shredding again.”
This 12 months, Weezer have launched two self-titled LPs: January’s covers assortment, often called the Teal Album, and March’s Black Album. Starting in June 2020, the band heads out on the “Hella Mega Tour” with Inexperienced Day and Fall Out Boy.
