Rivers Cuomo and co try out new material in South Korea
Weezer debuted three brand new songs during their performance at the inaugural Jisan Valley Rock Festival in South Korea last week.
Rivers Cuomo and company played the new tracks ‘I’m Your Daddy’, ‘Can’t Stop Partying’ and ‘The Girl Got Hot’ at the festival. Videos of the songs have surfaced on YouTube
In a posting on their website, the band wrote that fans at the festival “sang along with every song, even the three brand new ones”.
They added: “Granted, these songs are almost designed to sing along to, but it was pretty impressive that the crowd picked up on them so fast, especially with the language barrier.”
In addition, the band said that they are pleased with their new five-piece configuration, which features Josh Freese on drums.
“The five piece configuration is working out very well so far, with Josh Feese handling many of the drum duties, freeing up Pat (Wilson) to jump in on guitar and vocals, which frees up Rivers to do his thang.”
Weezer will continue their world tour with several North American dates in August.
