Weezer Announce 'White' Album and Tour, Stream First Song (Top Story)
On Monday Weezer Announce 'White' Album and Tour, Stream First Song was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Weezer have announced their tenth studio album. The self-titled affair will be referred to as "The White Album," by virtue of its cover art, as has been the case with the band's previous eponymous releases. The self-released effort is set to drop on April 1 (and that's no joke).
The band also shared a new track titled "King of the World" and announced plans to tour the US this summer with Panic! At The Disco and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness.
"The inspiration behind the songs were my experiences hanging around the Westside of Los Angeles, which has been our home since Weezer began," says singer Rivers Coumo. "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, the kids from La Sera. 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 make you feel like you were there with us SoCal weirdos even if you're in Milwaukee in December."
