Weezer Squeezes in Tour Dates Before Year End
Later this month Weezer will be backing “Raditude,” their upcoming studio album, with a December run of headlining dates as well as two shows on each coasts.
The band will play in Los Angeles on October 24 and in New York City on October 31. After a short break they will embark on a brief outing to support their new album on December 1 in Chicago. Their short trek covers six cities in 10 days, capped off by a Philadelphia appearance on December 10.
“Raditude,” due out on November 3, is the seventh studio album for the band. The set features multiple co-production credits, including Butch Walker (Katy Perry, Saosin) and Jacknife Lee (R.E.M., U2), as well as Rivers Cuomo from the band.
“I Want You To,” the first single from the album, hit the radio airwaves back in August. It debuted on Billboard’s Alternative Songs and Rock Songs charts at No. 21 and peaked eventually at No. 2 on the Alternative Songs chart.
Their new album follows up on “Weezer” or “The Red Album” of last year, which peaked on Billboard’s 200 at No. 4. The album spawned three singles, including the hit “Pork and Beans,” which made it to the top of the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart.
