Following the release of their legendary brand-new song Hero a couple days earlier, Weezer were special guests on The Simpsons which aired in the U.S last night. UK fans will have the ability to enjoy the episode on 22 nd May on Sky 1, at 8.30 pm.
The episode, entitled ‘The Hateful Eight Year-Olds’, sees Weezer voicing a cover band called Sailor’s Pleasure, who are the house band on a romantic cruise taken by Homer and Marge. A few of Sailor’s Pleasure’s tunes in the episode will sound familiar to you, especially if you were a fan of Weezer (The Black Album) or Pacific Musing, however one song is entirely brand-new: debuting around the world on The Simpsons, the track is called Blue Dream, and will be included on the band’s upcoming album, VanWeezer
Van Weezer, the band’s fourteenth studio album, is produced by Suzy Shinn (Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Kid). The motivation for this album stems from the inmost roots of Weezer – metal! What has metal got to finish with Weezer, you ask? In his earliest years, Rivers was a substantial KISS fan; Brian was a big Black Sabbath fan; Pat worshipped at the altar of Van Halen and Rush; Scott enjoyed Slayer and Metallica. The last time this vein of more difficult rock was mined by Weezer was on their much-loved 2002 album Maladroit; Van Weezer is primed to take that album’s sonics numerous actions even more thanks to manufacturer Suzy Shinn. The extremely prepared for album was initially set for release this month; a brand-new release date for the record will be comingsoon
Van Weezer follows the release of in 2015’s Weezer (The Black Album), in addition to their covers album, Weezer (The Teal Album), whose streaming numbers have actually well exceeded 100 million. Weezer have actually offered 10 million albums in the U.S., and over 35 million records worldwide considering that their debut album’s release in1994 Their brochure has actually consisted of such megahits as Friend Holly, Undone (The Sweatshirt Song), State It Ain’t So, El Scorcho, Hash Pipeline, Island In The Sun, Beverly Hills, Pork and Beans, and more.
