It features "A hundred guitars".

Weezer have revealed a brand new song, 'The End Of The Game'. 

It's our first taste of their upcoming new album 'Van Weezer', which is set to drop May 15, 2020.

Check it out right here:



In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1, frontman Rivers Cuomo explored the background to the new album.

"...So last album we didn't have any guitars, this one is just all guitars. A hundred guitars. This is all from playing shows, and we just noticed over the last few years there'd be these moments during the show where I'd accidentally bust out a few harmonics or a whammy bar dive or a little tapping just because I can't control myself."

"And we noticed like unlike in decades past, now the audience would go ballistic whenever they'd hear even a hint of that style. So I started doing it more and more. And soon I'm just like shredding through the whole show and we're like, 'Jeez, we should make an album like this.'"


'Van Weezer' sounds like, "The Blue Album but with more-riffs. Metal, hard rock riffs. But it's still pretty catchy pop rock."

Into it. You can pre-order here.

It's been a big day for Weezer news. The band have also announced that they'll be heading out on The Hella Mega Tour with Green Day, Fall Out Boy and The Interrupters.
