Weezer Christmas iPhone game released

It features six holiday songs from the band

Weezer have recorded six Christmas songs especially for an iPhone game, set to go on sale in the coming days.

‘Christmas With Weezer’ is built on ‘Tap Tap Revenge’, the game for iPhone and iPod touch, in which users tap and shake their devices to the tunes of the music.

The band recorded six Christmas songs exclusively for the game, including ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’, ‘Silent Night’, ‘O Holy Night’, ‘First Noel’, ‘Hark The Herald Angels Sing’ and ‘O Come, All Ye Faithful’, along with two bonus tracks. The six Christmas cover tracks were recorded exclusively for the game, and are not available anywhere else.

“I agreed to do these special recordings for the game because I am a fan of each of the songs. The melody and vocal lines are incredible and it was fun to sing them,” Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo said of the venture.

Weezer recently completed a North American tour in support of their sixth album ‘Weezer’ (also known as ‘The Red Album’).

‘Christmas With Weezer’ will be available worldwide for $4.99 from Apple‘s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/ in the next few days.
