Watch Rivers Cuomo perform with his dad and daughter at recent Weezer gigs

Frontman has turned two recent Weezer gigs into a family affair

Weezer‘s Rivers Cuomo was joined on stage by his father Frank during the band’s recent gig in Irvine, California.

Sharing a clip of the father-son collaboration on Instagram, Weezer’s official account wrote: “For only the second time, Rivers is joined by his dad Frank Cuomo on stage, at #irvinemeadows on 8/6/16. Frank was a jazz percussionist in NYC in the late 60’s, and brought a fine flavor to Beverly Hills, layering up sweetly over Pats massive backbeats.” Watch the clip below.

Meanwhile, Cuomo made another recent Weezer gig a family affair when he brought nine-year-old daughter Mia on stage to play keyboards with the band during their performance in San Diego. Watch a fan-shot clip of the father-daughter collaboration below.

Rivers Cuomo recently discussed the band’s next album, saying it could sound like “The Beach Boys gone bad”. The L.A. four-piece released their self-titled 11th album – also known as ‘The White Album’ – earlier this year and Cuomo suggested their next effort could be a darker offering known as ‘The Black Album’.

“What could stand out more against ‘White’ than ‘Black’?” he 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.” He then said the band could return to the recording studio as soon as October.
