Weezer Release First New Song Since 2010: Back To The Shack

Weezer have just released the first single from their forthcoming, highly anticipated ninth album, Everything Will be Alright In The End, via their YouTube channel. The song, entitled “Back To The Shack,” is pure Weezer – a punchy, joyful blend of alt-rock, emo and indie. Check it out below.

Since forming in 1992, Weezer has released a myriad of celebrated, chart-topping albums, selling over 13 million records worldwide. Following an intensely prolific couple years at the end of the aughts, the band chose to deliberately dial down the tempo in 2010, a move singer/guitarist Rivers Cuomo says allowed him to write at a slower pace, giving the songs he wanted to use for an album the time to gradually grow into their final forms. When it came time to record the material, Weezer reunited with the man who helped them make some of their most iconic album-length work, Cars frontman Ric Ocasek.  The resulting album, Everything Will Be Alright In The End, released September 30th on Republic Records, is a stand-out gem inWeezer’s vast and varied catalogue, a reflection of a much-loved band at their very best.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
