Riot Fest 2018 - Friday
Weezer at Riot Fest 2018 (more by James Richards IV)

Weezer recently announced another co-headlining tour with the Pixies for 2019, and though this one didn't include a NYC show, now that Pixies wrapped up their Brooklyn Steel run, a very big NYC show has been added. The two veteran alt-rock bands will play Madison Square Garden on March 12. Like the rest of the tour, Basement are opening, and this one also has awesome local support from TV on the Radio.

Tickets for the MSG show go on sale Friday (11/30) at noon with a BrooklynVegan presale starting Thursday, 11/29 at 10 AM. Check back here on the 29th for the password.

The tour also hits Albany's Times Union Center on March 14 (tickets)

Weezer also added a few Europe/UK shows for late June/early July (openers TBA). All dates are listed below.

Weezer have also revealed more details on their upcoming album The Black Album. It comes out March 1 via Crush Music/Atlantic, and pre-orders have been launched. They also shared a second single, "Zombie Bastards." While previous single "Can't Knock the Hustle" was full of awkward hip hop appropriation, this new one... kinda sounds like Jack Johnson or something? You can hear both and check out the album artwork below.

Meanwhile, Weezer's first charting single in about a decade isn't an original song but their cover of Toto's "Africa," and that cover is coming out on an Africa-shaped picture disc this week for Record Store Day Black Friday.
