The band you love to “hope will put out a good album but invariably will fall short of your expectations because Pinkerton was so damn good” have announced the release date for their sixth studio album.Pitchfork is reporting that “album six” will be released on April 22, 2008 and will be leaked probably a few weeks before that.
“Weezer fans truly have something to look forward to,” gushed Weezer bassist Scott Shriner about the new Weezer album on the Weezer website. “The entire band has accomplished some of its most challenging goals as a group and as individuals. It’s all coming together on this album.”
