Eighth Weezer album coming in September; brace for impact

Pin it

Weezer's eighth album will come out in September on Epitaph Records, according to The AV Club, who have nobly maintained a subscription to Weezer's Twitter feed despite the band's numerous outrages against good taste. Anyone hoping for another Pinkerton probably won't take much hope from the title — Hurley — but Rivers Cuomo (who's promising "more raw rock energy on this one") is ever-unpredictable; he may yet surprise us with another good album. (Meaning an album like the first one and Pinkerton and unlike the two mixed bags and three stinkers that followed.) We previously gleaned lessons on love from Weezer's discography here; who knows what kind of updates that article might need come September?
