Watch Weezer Perform New Song The End Of The Game On Jimmy Kimmel Live
Just a day after releasing brand new single The End Of The Game, Weezer performed it live on Jimmy Kimmel.
Still sporting his Fall Out Boy x Green Day t‑shirt from their secret show at the Whisky A Go Go on Tuesday night, Rivers Cuomo is fully embracing the heavy metal aesthetic of upcoming album Van Weezer with a studded wristbands and a Flying V guitar. The band are also surrounded by bolts of lightning and a proper rock’n’roll light show!
“Last album we didn’t have any guitars, this one is just all guitars,” said Rivers Cuomo earlier this week about their upcoming Van Weezer record.

“This is all from playing shows, and we just noticed over the last few years there’d be these moments during the show where I’d accidentally bust out a few harmonics or a whammy bar dive or a little tapping just because I can’t control myself.
“And we noticed unlike in decades past, now the audience would go ballistic whenever they’d hear even a hint of that style. So I started doing it more and more. And soon I’m just like shredding through the whole show and we’re like, ‘Jeez, we should make an album like this.’”
