Weezer Celebrates Summer with New EP & Announces Broadway Residency

In an innovative approach to their craft, Weezer is dropping four EPs, one for each of the seasons. All together this project has appropriately been titled SZNZ. The Los Angeles-hailing rock band has already released SZNZ: Spring, and now, on the summer solstice, the band dropped the next installment—SZNZ: Summer.

Like the spring EP, SZNZ: Summer is a seven-song record. Unlike Spring, however, Summer rocks a little harder and embraces the firey, scorching heat of summer. Summer also leans into Weezer’s classic ’90s alternative sound that kicked off their career. Further, the members of the band—Brian Bell (backing vocals, guitar), Rivers Cuomo (vocals, guitar, piano), Scott Shriner (backing vocals, bass), and Pat Wilson (drums)—took their early sound and polished it with today’s production. The result was standout tracks like the opener “Lawn Chair” and “Blue Like Jazz.” The band also debuted their song “Records” on Jimmy Kimmel Live, which you can watch below.

And if that wasn’t enough, the band also announced their short Broadway residency for later this year. Weezer will be playing at The Broadway Theatre in New York City from September 13 through September 18. Tickets for Weezer’s Broadway appearance will go on sale HERE on June 24.
