Weezer Goes "Back To The Shack"
July 21, 2014


Weezer
Weezer has finally unveiled its first new song since 2010, titled "Back To The Shack." The single was released to radio today, and the band also posted it on their YouTube channel. "Back To The Shack" will be available for purchase on iTunes as of midnight on Tuesday, July 22. The band will then drop by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on July 23 to play the song for the first time on television. "Back To The Shack" comes from Weezer's upcoming album, Everything Will Be Alright In The End, which is due on September 30 via Republic Records. The band's ninth release was produced by Cars frontman Ric Ocasek, who also worked on Weezer's 1994 debut (The Blue Album) as well as 2001's Green Album.

After recording their last record, 2010's Hurley, the group chose to deliberately slow down their hectic work schedule, a move singer/guitarist Rivers Cuomo says allowed him to write at a slower pace, giving the songs plenty of time to gradually grow into their final forms. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, drummer Pat Wilson described the album's sound as a blend of Weezer's first two albums.

"If you took the Pinkerton band and then play all the other records – that's what we sound like now," he said. "Bombastic, loose, kind of booming. This record sounds like it's going to have the tight structure of Blue Album with a little bit more abandon like Pinkerton."

So far, Weezer's confirmed tour dates are as follows:

7/24 - London, ON @ Rock The Park 2014
7/25 - Belleville, ON @ Empire Rockfest
7/26 - Rimouski, QC
8/1 - Las Vegas, NV
