Weezer cruise live

Weezer fans will probably be doing a lot of looking back this year — the Blue Album’s twentieth anniversary is mere months away — but the band itself is moving forward with new music for the first time since 2010′s Hurley. In performances aboard last weekend’s Weezer Cruise, Rivers Cuomo and company debuted a new song called “Back To The Shack” that bears a distinct Pinkerton vibe — i.e. it sounds a lot better than anything Weezer has released in a long time. Lyrically, it seems to be very literally about going back to their roots and “rockin’ out like it’s ’94,” so, maybe Weezer is about to come full circle? Check out fan-made video of the song below.

Weezer is reportedly at work on a new album with Blue Album producer Ric Ocasek, and a greatest hits collection is on the way.

  1. oh teh Varz, please follow through on all those lyrics!

  2. im glad pats back on the drums. he ruined the say it aint so solo when i saw them in 09.

  3. What are you talking about? This is just as terrible as anything they’ve done in the past 10 years.

  4. Since when did pat stop playing the drums and rivers stop playing lead? I assume probably around the time I lost interest in them. Either way this is a pleasant song that is much better then the last song I remember from them, the on drugs songs that has the melody of the diarrhea song.

    • I think Pat played guitar on of the the more recent tours for one of their more recent forgettable albums, but i’m not sure because I didn’t really care. What was your question again?

  5. Everything after Maladroit is not Weezer IMHO. I hope they’ll someday release something worthy, but wow they’ve put out shovelful after shovelful of garbage.

  6. I don’t think the person who wrote this has ever listened to pinkerton.

  7. You got my hopes up for this typical late-2000s Weezer trash.

  8. you need to actually listen to Pinkerton before you can even start to make a lofty comparison. Rivers went from a gifted, insecure songwriter to a comfortable 40 something who obviously read all the glowing press about his band. They also desperately need Matt Sharp back but I stopped holding my breath in 2006.

  9. I think every lame duck Weezer album of the last 10 years has had one brief teaser moment that leads someone to say it “bears a distinct Pinkerton vibe — i.e. it sounds a lot better than anything Weezer has released in a long time.” And then you’re stuck with the rest of it.

  10. Remember when everyone thought Make Believe was the last album? It really should’ve been cause that album and everything after is embarrassing to listen to.
