Weezer announce new album title
Weezer have announced the title of their forthcoming new album.

Entitled 'Hurley', the LP is the follow-up to 2009's 'Raditude' and will be the Los Angeles group's eighth studio effort.

Released in the UK on September 13 and in the US on September 14, the band also revealed that they have just signed to Epitaph Records, after leaving Geffen in 2009.

"At this moment in our career, it feels like we don't need a major label," frontman Rivers Cuomo told Rolling Stone. "The major label culture isn't inline with our values. We like [Epitaph Records' owner and Bad Religion guitarist] Brett Gurewitz and it feels like a smaller and more appropriate operation for what we like doing at the moment."

As previously reported, 'Hurley' is set to feature a collaboration with Ryan Adams.

While a tracklisting is yet to be announced, the album will also feature a song called 'Time Flies'. It was written by Mac Davis, who also wrote Elvis Presley's 1969 hit single 'In The Ghetto'.

Weezer will appear at this year's Reading and Leeds festivals later this month.
