Weezer Announces New Album and Live Dates, Shares Video for 'King of the World'
Weezer has announced a self-titled album release and a slew of live dates in support of it.
The veteran alternative rock group’s 10th studio set is scheduled to drop April 1 (this isn’t a joke, the band assures). Fans in north America who pre-order the album on Apple Music will receive instant-grat tracks "Thank God For Girls," "Do You Wanna Get High?" and "King of the World".
The video for “King of the World” hit the Web overnight and can be viewed below. “Thank God for Girls,” the first track lifted from Weezer, dropped last October.
Weezer will be the band’s tenth studio album and the follow-up to Everything Will Be Alright In The End, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 in October 2014.
The band will embark on a major summer outing with Panic! At The Disco starting June 10 at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion at The Woodlands, TX.
A handful of “album release shows” are penciled in from March 30 at Brooklyn’s Warsaw and will visit Manchester, London and Amsterdam in April, the act’s only international dates confirmed thus far.
