Filed under: Music MinuteWeezer

Say it Ain't So!!

Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo ditched his Buddy Holly band, teamed up with musician Scott Murphy, and now they're singing in Japanese!!

It probably sounds like we're hitting the Hash Pipe extra hard, but it's TRUE — the Harvard graduate swapped his Island in the Sun for the Land of the Rising Sun!

Getchoo some Scott & Rivers singing Homely Girl (above)!!

Call us crazy, but the music these American icons made Across the Sea is actually kind of rad!!

Even better, you don't have to take a Holiday to Japan to hear Rivers get back to his Pinkerton & Blue Album glory days!!

Scott & Rivers J-Pop debut was released stateside on Monday — get it on iTunes now!!

Weezer Planning Blue/Pinkerton Tour!

Filed under: Music MinuteWeezer

Any Weezer fans out there who suffer from depression will all be instantly cured with this news!

The band has announced their plans for a retro tour, where they will spend 2 nights in each city. The first night, they will play the entire Blue album, and the second night they will play Pinkerton in its entirety.

Here’s what frontman Rivers Cuomo had to say about it:

"We have this really exciting idea to do a tour where we spend two nights in each city, and the first night, we play the entire Blue album, and the second night, we play the entirety of Pinkerton. We're just running it by promoters right now to see if there's sufficient interest in the markets to do something like that, and if they're on board, it's gonna happen."

And more from Rivers:

"The fan response has been incredible so far for the idea. And, if they want to, they can contact their local promoter and tell them to make it happen."

We will be shocked if this doesn’t happen. Hardcore Weezer fans worship those two albums. We’ll be keeping an ear out for an official announcement of this tour, which we're sure will happen sooner than later.

Would U like to see a Blue/Pinkerton tour?
