Band say new album is a cross between 'Pinkerton' and 'The Blue Album'
Weezer have confirmed that their new album ‘Everything Will Be Alright In The End’ will be released on September 29.
The news came via a new trailer, ‘Return To Ithaca’, which is one of their ‘Weezer Wednesday’ webisodes.
‘Everything Will Be Alright In The End’ is produced by Ric Ocasek, The Cars singer, who also produced Weezer’s ‘The Blue Album’ in 1994 and ‘The Green Album’ in 2001. It’s Weezer’s first album since ‘Hurley’ in 2010.
Drummer Pat Wilson has described the album as a mix between ‘The Blue Album’ and ‘Pinkerton’. In an interview with EW, Wilson said: “If you took the ‘Pinkerton’ band and then play all the other records, that’s what we sound like now: bombastic, loose, kind of booming. This record sounds like it’s going to have the tight structure of ‘Blue Album’ with a little bit more abandon like ‘Pinkerton’.”
