Weezer have spoken about the effect their Weezer Cruise, held earlier in the year, had on their forthcoming album 'Everything Will Be Alright In The End'.

The record marks the band's first LP in four years, following 2010's 'Hurley', and is set for release on September 29.

Speaking to Q Magazine, frontman Rivers Cuomo explained: "One of the most inspiring moments for this record was when we did the Weezer Cruises and we were locked up with a bunch of our fans for five days."

He continued: "It was just such a feeling of love and support and passion for the most uniquely Weezer parts of what we do."

Earlier this month, Cuomo told NME the new album was also influenced by his relationship with his father, saying: "My father was in the army, stationed in Germany, when I was growing up, so I didn’t see him much. That gave me a lot to write about, and I explored the father figure theme in other ways, too. There's a song called 'Eulogy For A Rock Band' about Weezer's musical forefathers. 'The British Are Coming' is about the American colonies' relations with their imperial father, the British Empire. And 'Foolish Father' could be me singing about my father or me singing about my daughter."

'Everything Will Be Alright In The End' is produced by The Cars' Ric Ocasek, who was recently revealed as the producer on the next Cribs album.
