Weezer Sets Release Date For New Album 'Everything Will Be Alright In The End'
The plot continues to thicken for Weezer's alleged "return to form" album. Today (July 9), Rivers Cuomo and pals announced their upcoming ninth studio album, "Everything Will Be Alright In The End," will drop Sept. 30 via Republic Records.
The band broke the news via a brief teaser video that features some guitar licks (presumably from a new song) and one vocal line from Cuomo: "Take me back, back to the shack…"
"Everything Will Be Alright In The End" was produced by Cars frontman Ric Ocasek, the man behind the boards for Weezer's classic 1994 debut "The Blue Album" and 2001's self-titled "Green Album." The "Green Album" included the classic "Island in the Sun," thus breeding a good deal of "back to basics" hype.
In a press release, Cuomo says he devoted more time to writing the new songs than in the recent past, referencing the 2008-2010 period that saw Weezer release three studio albums.
Last month, the band shared snippets of a pair of new songs: "Ain't Got Nobody" and "The Wasteland."
Fans will see where the next chapter in Weezer's 20-year history leads soon enough.
