Hailing from Los Angeles, California, Weezer – Rivers Cuomo (vocals/guitar), Brian Bell (guitar), Scott Shriner (bass), and Patrick Wilson (drums) – has sold over nine million albums in the U.S. and over 17 million records worldwide. The band has proven themselves a force in the industry with a 20-year catalog that features chart-topping hits such as “Buddy Holly,” “Say It Ain’t So,” “Hash Pipe,” “Beverly Hills,” “Perfect Situation,” “Pork and Beans,” “El Scorcho,” “Island in the Sun,” and more.

Weezer released their self-titled 10th studio album (referred to as “The White Album”) on April 1 via Weezer/Crush Music. Produced by the band and Jake Sinclair, “The White Album” follows 2014’s critically praised “Everything Will Be Alright in the End” and continues that record’s celebrated return to musical form.

The first track from the highly anticipated album, “Thank God for Girls,” has charted across multiple genres and hit the Top 10 at alternative radio. In addition, the band recently wrapped up a popular 40+ city nationwide U.S. co-headlining summer tour with Panic! at the Disco.
