Weezer announces self titled album, tour with Panic At The Disco

Weezer has announced that their tenth studio album, a self titled effort also known as The White Album, will be out on April 1st, and that they’ll support the record by launching a summer tour with Panic At The Disco.

“This album was inspired by my experiences hanging around the Westside of Los Angeles, which has been our home since Weezer began,” Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo writes. “Hanging out with people in Venice and Santa Monica, the beach, the Hare Krishnas, the Sikh on roller blades with the guitar, girls on Tinder within a 4 mile radius, seeing other bands, etc. I would just tweet out ‘does anybody wanna hang?’ and then I’d get together with people who responded and talk about life. I love California. I wanted the album to have a Beach Boys sort of vibe to make you feel like you were there with us SoCal weirdos even if you’re in Milwaukee in December.”

North American fans who pre-order the album on Apple Music and Amazon instantly receive three songs: “King of the World,” “Thank God For Girls” and “Do You Wanna Get High?” The international digital pre-order is coming soon.

CD and vinyl bundles are available worldwide via the band’s web store.

Weezer will be playing a few album release shows in March and April, and then hitting the road for two months starting in June with Panic! At The Disco. Special guest Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness will support most dates.

A pre-sale starts January 19th at 10 am local time. Sign up to the band’s mailing list before January 18th in order to get the pre-sale code. General on sale starts Friday, January 22nd at 10 am local time.
