Weezer Sets Date For, Names New Album

Weezer’s sixth studio album will be yet another self-titled affair, and will arrive June 17 via Geffen, according to their publicist.

“The album is meaty, crunchy and melodic like a good Weezer album should be,” frontman Rivers Cuomo writes on the band’s Web site.

Cuomo previously described the new songs, which were co-produced by Rick Rubin, as “dark and deep and beautiful,” and “definitely more sophisticated and adventurous. You’ll hear very long songs … and non-traditional structures.”

This is Weezer’s third self-titled album, following their 1994 debut and their 2001 comeback album.
