Weezer Say That Their New Album Sounds Like ‘Blue Album’ Meets ‘Pinkerton’

Weezer - Everything Will Be Alright In The End

As you may know, Weezer is releasing a new record in September called Everything Will Be Alright In The End. For a large portion of the band’s fan base, the excitement that accompanies a new album announcement is almost always shaded in the possibility of being let down once again. However, things are a little different this time. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, drummer Pat Wilson states that the new record “sounds like it’s going to have the tight structure of Blue Album with a little bit more abandon like Pinkerton.”

While the band has released six additional full-length studio albums since 1996’s Pinkerton, many fans of the band consider their 1994 self-titled “blue album” and Pinkerton as the band’s best showings. If true, this news is a dream come true for fans of 1990s Weezer. I’ve always considered Weezer one of my favorite bands, largely due to the fact that their first two records are both perfect in their own right. If they were truly able to regain that magic, then Everything Will Be Alright In The End just jumped to the top of my “Most Anticipated” list for the rest of the year.

Check out the latest “Weezer Wednesday” video after the jump. This week’s installment contains new song clips and reveals the album’s release date of September 30!
