Pete Wentz in the video for Weezer's "Can't Knock The Hustle"

Weezer announced the long-awaited The Black Album and debuted a new song and video, “Can’t Knock The Hustle,” on Thursday (Oct. 11). The band also announced another round of tour dates with Pixies.

The sass-filled single, lead by groovy guitars and trumpets, is a fitting addition to Weezer's recent tongue-in-cheek releases. While the song fits the band's standard rock sound at times, it also borrows from Latin and funk.

The song’s music video stars Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz as a driver for a fictional rideshare service. A typical night of driving takes a turn as a couple begins fighting in his car, with the ride ending in a trip to the emergency room. The visual was released alongside the launch of a website called, which contains a phone number for the fake company; fans who text it will receive a contact verification form and a message implying that those who sign up will be sent updates on Weezer’s upcoming album.

Weezer previously hit the road with Pixies this summer, and will head out with the band again for a 21-city tour in the spring. It kicks off March 8 in Louisville, Ky. and concludes April 12 in Las Vegas, Nev. Tickets for the tour go on sale Oct. 19.

The Black Album is due in 2019.
