Weezer's End of the Game

2019-09-10 by Daisy99 | 43 Comments
Power pop band turned electro pop(and now back again) Weezer have announced a new album "Van Weezer", set to come out on May 15th of 2020. Along with that, the band announced a tour with Fall Out Boy and Green Day(both releasing lead singles from freshly announced albums as well) and released the first single from the record, The End of the Game.

The album, according to Weezer, is turning away from the sound of the previous record, The Black Album and is gonna feature guitar more prominently, as heard in the released track which you can listen to below.

It’d be a fun song if it weren’t for the extremely forced guitar riffs.

Ha! Van Weezer. Nice. This is cheesy but kinda fun.

This is turning into a weird year for '90s bands paying homage to the '70s and '80s. First Incubus put out that that Bowie-lite tune and now Weezer takes their Van Halen love to an actual record?

I think the same, like it's cheesy and kinda dumb but fun. Definitely prefer it over their boring 2000 stuff even if its goofy

Wow this is a relief they went back to old signature style instead of the hipster pop shit they were trying to pull the last 2 albums. This is weezer.

So basically it's White-era Weez with more shred. I am okay with this.

I'm curious as to why they're announcing it so far in advance, seems odd considering the Black album was only like 6 months ago...

^ Seems like they felt they needed something to go along with the big bombastic triple promotion they're doing with Green Day and Fall Out Boy. I'll be honest, I listened to the Green Day and Fall Out Boy tracks where I otherwise wouldn't have bothered, simply because I was interested in this cross-promotional hype event.

Feel like Weezer could still put out some clever, catchy stuff if they didn't rush every single release

it's alright, I suspect the record will be much better.
Hopefully another one like Ewbaite

If I want to listen to Van Halen, I will listen to Van Halen. Weezer should have broken up a decade ago. It is their best in 5 years, but I feel like they are releasing too much too soon and we are going to hit a new low for them.

I'm ok with anything where Rivers brings out his inner shred monster, so I'm digging it. The intro and riffs are straight out of EVH's playbook

Of all the questionable decisions Cuomo has made over the past decade and a half NOW is when you want him to stop? Right when he might actually be making something good again. Wow...

I'm not much of a Weezer fan, but I kinda respect that they're pretty much doing whatever they want now instead of trying to please their fans

Also, wow that riff sounds like REO Speedwagon lol

“The inspiration came from our live shows, where, in the middle of ‘Beverly Hills,’ unlike on the album, everything stops and I just break out with this crazy guitar solo. We noticed that, recently, the crowd just goes crazy when I do that. So it feels like maybe the audience is ready for some shredding again.”

Sounds like they're trying to please their fans almost entirely haha. But hey, the track is fun and it seems like they're enjoying themselves, so.

“*calls album title and video "retarded", in 2019*”

Oh, is “retarded” a word that is out of fashion now? Or maybe it’s just so un-PC that it’s incredibly offensive?

Actually it's more that only tweens who don't know any better and 40 year old dudes who want to seem cool on the internet still use it. Hence the general irony of the comment.

"retarded" is schoolboy bullshit language, and that has nothing to do with PC culture. Nobody is trying to curtail your free speech, they're just chuckling at your use of immature language.
