Weezer Detail ‘The Black Album,’ Drop New Song ‘Zombie Bastards’

Rivers Cuomo and company also map out spring 2019 tour with Pixies

Weezer have shared their new song “Zombie Bastards” as well as detailed their upcoming self-titled “Black Album.” The LP – the fifth in a series of color-coded eponymous albums following their 1994 debut “Blue Album,” 2001’s “Green Album,” 2008’s “Red Album” and 2016’s “White Album” – is due out March 1st, 2019. TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, working with Weezer for the first time, produced the “Black Album.”

Rivers Cuomo wrote the album’s songs entirely on piano, a first for a Weezer album, before the singer brought the tracks to the studio. “The Black Album” also boasts first single “Can’t Knock the Hustle.”

The “Black Album” – featuring the band doused in a black liquid on the cover – is available to preorder now in a series of bundles, including limited edition vinyl, cassette, blacklight poster, “black ice”-scented air freshener and more.

Weezer and Pixies will also reteam for a spring 2019 arena tour, hitting 22 cities beginning March 8th. The tour includes a March 12th show at New York’s Madison Square Garden that features TV on the Radio on the bill as special guest.
