Weezer have unveiled a brilliant brand new video
The undisputed kings of geek rock, Weezer, have given us another taste of their new self-titled album (already being christened as The White Album, given the cover). California Kids is the opening track from the record – which is due for release on April 1st .
The video is a bit special, too, given that it explicitly references the album’s previously released videos for Thank God For Girls and King Of The World. It turns out the bloke eating the cannoli and running around the beach WAS RIVERS ALL ALONG!
You can check out the video for California Kids below, and don’t forget to leave us your comments!
Speaking about The White Album on Weezer’s official site, Rivers Cuomo writes: “This album was inspired by my experiences hanging around the Westside of Los Angeles, which has been our home since Weezer began. Hanging out with people in Venice and Santa Monica, the beach, the Hare Krishnas, the Sikh on roller blades with the guitar, girls on Tinder within a 4 mile radius, seeing other bands, etc. I would just tweet out “does anybody wanna hang?” and then I’d get together with people who responded and talk about life. I love California. I wanted the album to have a Beach Boys sort of vibe to make you feel like you were there with us SoCal weirdos even if you’re in Milwaukee in December. ”
