...meanwhile, many have been wondering about the status of weezer's next album - their 7th! While theres not much that can yet be officially revealed, here's the basics as they now stand...
- The band worked with Jacknife Lee in Malibu, Santa Monica, and West L.A. between 11/08 and 1/09, recording a nice pile of songs. The songs were mixed in March '09 in NYC with Rich Costey. Now the band has more new songs they are excited about, so they will be doing some more recording soon. What exactly ends up on the new album, and what is saved for the future, remains to be seen.
- As usual, weezer has kept things interesting with new experiments and ideas. After this many albums, its a given that they will try some new theories out. However, one thing thats stayed the same this time is Rivers singing lead.
- There is no release date set. Rumors and speculation about a July release are unfounded. The album may come out in summer, or fall, or ???. We shall see.
- No title has been selected, rumors and speculation to the contrary.
- No 1st single has been selected. The 1st single will probably come out in the summer. Stay tuned.
- Yes, the album rocks.
- More info to come, whenever it can be revealed. Thanks.
