After a few years of releasing material that perhaps didn’t quite hit the expectations die-hard fans may have had for the Los Angeles quartet, Weezer has been on a winning streak since the release of their last album, Everything Will Be Alright In The End. We’re just a few short weeks away from the release of Weezer’s latest self-titled album (aka The White Album), and the band recently released a clip for the record’s latest single, “California Kids.”

The video shares many of the themes, locations, and characters of previous videos for “Thank God for Girls,” “King of the World,” and “L.A. Girlz” (it seems like Rivers Cuomo may have taken a page from the Anthony Kiedis book of California lyric references this time around). If we’re to use these previously released pieces as any sort of indicator for the direction of the overall project, The White Album — available on April 1st — will be soaked in the classic Weezer sound of their first two acclaimed records. And that, kids, is never a bad thing.


With their new album in tow, Weezer is hitting the road for a massive tour across the States with Panic! At The Disco and Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness that culminates with a stop at Irvine Meadows Amphitheater on August 6. While that date is sold out, there are still tickets available for other shows, including one in Chula Vista (seriously, guys, no proper LA date?).
