This is not Pinkerton.
Now that we have that out of the way, let’s examine where this 10th LP (fourth self-titled) fits within The Curious Case of Weezer.
To many, Weezer are hacks; they’re notorious for “selling out” (whatever that means), a band who’s switched not only styles but a frontman who famously experimented with hundreds of songwriting methods just to reach the heights of the band’s classic debut, Weezer (The Blue Album). But it’s what’s happened between the time of The Blue Album and now that makes the band (and their enigmatic frontman, Rivers Cuomo) so endearing. There was critical success followed by critical failure; addiction followed by isolation, all in the name of goofy songs like “Hash Pipe” and “Island in the Sun.” There was celibacy, meditation, marriage, divorce, a Lil Wayne feature, and a “return to form” all in the past two decades.

In a new profile with Distinct, Fleet Foxesʼ Christian Wargo revealed that he and Robin Pecknold have been discussing the idea of getting the band back together.
“It’s not, like, ‘announced’ or anything, and none of us really knew it was coming, but it’s happening,” assured Wargo, who also spends his time as a woodworker and illustrator. “Possibly unofficially at this stage, but it’s definitely a thing.”
Chris DeVille, writing for Stereogum, looks at how Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo may be the first number one album with practically zero actual “sales.”
Pablo still isn’t on sale anywhere besides Kanye’s site, and even if Tidal reported the limited number of Tidal TLOP purchases to Nielsen SoundScan, those sales happened weeks ago. But HITS Daily Double and @chartnews report that the album is projected to accumulate about 60,000 equivalent units based almost entirely on TEA and SEA and will likely ascend to #1 on the Billboard 200 next week.
With Confidence will be releasing their new album, Better Weather, on June 17th via Hopeless Records. You can watch the video for the first single, “Keeper,” on YouTube or by hitting read more.
