Weezer: Hurley - Sept. 14th



According to Twitter, Weezer have signed to Epitaph and have a new album out Sept. 14th.

Hopefully this is just the thing to get these guys back on track after the last few extremely mediocre (IMO) efforts.

Details to follow.

Interesting that they're releasing a new album in only a little over a month and this is the first that I'm hearing of it. Guess I haven't kept up with them as much lately. I'll get it the day its out as I'm a big fan of these guys.

Red was the best album they've put out since Green but I'm still not a big fan of it. Its very tough to be a Weezer fan.

I agree. Rivers' lyrics are just so banal.

Loved "I'm Your Daddy" off Raditude, but the rest is garbage.

Re: Weezer: Hurley - Sept. 14th

I liked both Red and Raditude - sure they aren't up to the levels of Blue, Pinkerton or Green but I had fun with them. Can't wait for the new one, especially since I had no idea it was even in the works! (Saw them in concert a month ago and they didn't play any new material or mention a new record).

Did they talk to the crowd at all?

^Yeah, a lot actually. Over the years Rivers has really come out of his shell. He does a lot more banter now I find.

Re: Weezer: Hurley - Sept. 14th

edit: I took out the cover pic since you updated the first post.

yeah the cover is definitely a odd one, guess it makes sense given the title of the album. I really hope this one is good. I hated Raditude at first but it grew on me and I really like it now.

Re: Weezer: Hurley - Sept. 14th

Wait...that's the real cover? I thought it was just you guys in the thread goofing around...

Anyway, My expectations aren't very high since the last few albums. Hopefully they surprise me this time.

Edit: Listen to the first single "Memories" Here.

Always smart when you want to make an album to stand the test of time to put some short term pop culture icon who's about to fade into oblivion as your album cover.

Better than a marijuana leaf or even another cover of themselves on it.

Re: Weezer: Hurley - Sept. 14th

Okay I'm out of the loop apparently. I have no clue who the hell that is on the cover. Either way it seems stupid to me and I've been a fan of pretty much everything Weezer has done so far. Hopefully the music is good. The first single "Memories" is okay not the best thing they've done by a long shot, and not even their best in recent years but i don't mind it.

It's Jorge Garcia, who played Hurley on Lost.

I agree on Memories though. I don't love it, but I think it's better than almost everything on Raditude.

That single is one of the worst songs I've ever heard... worried.

Re: Weezer: Hurley - Sept. 14th

The newly major-label free Weezer have a new album, Hurley (aka the one with the absurd, Lost-referencing album cover), out September 14 via Epitaph. They've got a new single out, too, the alt-rock-tastic "Memories". Lots of looking ahead towards the future, right? Well, it seems that Weezer might look back with a possible tour that would find the band playing their two most beloved albums, 1994's Weezer (aka "The Blue Album") and 1996's Pinkerton, in their entirety, as MTV reports.

Frontman Rivers Cuomo told MTV News about the possible touring plans while shooting the sure-to-be-ridiculous video for "Memories": "We have this really exciting idea to do a tour where we spend two nights in each city, and the first night, we play the entire Blue Album, and the second night, we play the entirety of Pinkerton. We're just running it by promoters right now to see if there's sufficient interest in the markets to do something like that, and if they're on board, it's gonna happen."

Drummer Pat Wilson added to MTV, ""Yeah, it would probably be a Blue/Pinkerton tour. It's an idea, we're still examining the mathematics of everything, looking at the logistics and schedules ... you know." Sounds like it might happen, then-- let's hope they don't play, uh, anything after Pinkerton.

Wow...that would be kick ass. I like the new song better than anything on Raditude.

Makes sense, since Pinkerton Deluxe is due out early October. They'll want to promote it.

Re: Weezer: Hurley - Sept. 14th

Weezer pretty much lost me with the Green album and then completely lost me with everything since...

...however, I would absolutely see them on a Blue/Pinkerton tour. Possibly even both nights.

Re: Weezer: Hurley - Sept. 14th

Do they really need 2 nights in each city to perform the albums? I'd buy tickets to the Pinkerton show but wouldn't make the trip two nights in a row and would hate to miss the blue album performance. Both albums combined are less than 80 minutes, no?
