Meanwhile, the band’s frontman Rivers Cuomo has hinted on Twitter that the band could perform a secret set at Reading Festival this summer.

He also said that yesterday he had turned in more than 13 demos, presumably for the band’s new album.

Last year Cuomo suggested that the band’s new album could be a darker effort than 2016’s ‘Weezer’ a.k.a. ‘The White Album’.

“What could stand out more against ‘White’ than ‘Black’?” Cuomo explained. “I think it’s going to maybe be like Beach Boys gone bad. I’m thinking of swearing, which is something I’ve never done in songs.”

Cuomo also said the album would tackle “more mature topics” and be “less summer day and more winter night”, adding: “If it were a movie in the United States it would be rated R instead of PG.”
