Weezer woke up everyone up early today to announce their next album, Van Weezer, will be out May 15th for the whole world to hear. As the name suggests, the album will be heavily ’80s shred-rock inspired and should be a return to form in some ways for the band. Weezer has always had a tinge of metal, shred, and party rock in their music, take the songs “Dope Nose”, “Undone (The Sweater Song)”, and “Back To The Shack” for example.
In addition to announcing the new album, they also shared the album’s first single, a finger tapping good time named “The End Of The Game”. The band also released an ET-like video for the throwback rocker and many fans of Weezer’s crunchier, louder, guitar driven records will rejoice. Check it out below!
