Weezer have gone full 80s metal!
Their new single "The End of the Game" produced by Suzy Shinn, will be included on their forthcoming 14th studio album, entitled 'VAN WEEZER', due out in May 2020.
The inspiration for this album derives from the deepest roots of Weezer - metal! What has metal got to do with Weezer, you ask?
In his earliest years, Rivers was a huge KISS fan; Brian was a big Black Sabbath fan; Pat worshipped at the altar of Van Halen and Rush; Scott loved Slayer and Metallica.
The last time this vein of harder rock was mined by Weezer was on their much-loved 2002 album 'MALADROIT'; 'VAN WEEZER' is primed to take that album's sonics many steps further courtesy of producer Suzy Shinn.
