Weezer (finally) announce the ‘Black Album’

It’s set for release in March.

After literally years of teasing it, Weezer have finally announced the release of their ‘Black’ album.

The record, produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek and written on the piano, will be released on 1st March. It’s the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Pacific Daydream’, and is the band’s twelfth LP.

The band, who toured on a co-headline with Pixies this summer, will also rejoin the indie legends at New York City’s Madison Square Garden in the spring - and include a Brixton Academy date in a brief European summer tour.

The dates are:
29 London Brixton Academy

2 Hamburg Stadtpark
4 Utrecht Tivoli Vredenburg
7 Bologna Sonic Park
8 Zurich Xtra
