The band also added a Madison Square Garden date to their 2019 tour.

Weezer officially announced a March 1 release date for their forthcoming The Black Album. It will drop just a week before the band embarks on a multi-date tour with the PixiesTV On The Radio and Basement on March 8.   

The band also released their new song “Zombie Bastards” on Wednesday (Nov. 21) along with an eerie video. The visual shows thick black liquid dripping across a goggle-clad skull and pooling around a “W" in a style that resembles the album cover art.

Finally, Weezer has added a date at New York City's Madison Square Garden, as well as a handful of international tour dates.

Written entirely on piano by frontman Rivers CuomoThe Black Album borrows inspiration from acts like Gorillaz, Can and Pink Floyd, while cycling through a diverse selection of instruments. Weezer's new album is available for pre-order now.
