Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo recently posted an awesome photo of himself shirtless in a bathing suit taking some sort of ice bath. Pretty brave! You can view the photo below.
Weezer bassist Scott Shriner discussed the band’s next album in a new interview with The Calgary Sun, “Rivers is one of the hardest-working people I’ve ever met. It’s not going to be the type of album where it’s like, ‘Oh, these songs were almost good enough for The White Album, so let’s just put them on something.’ This is a really important, essential time for us in our trajectory. We are not going to half measure it by any means. We’re really working hard to put together something that keeps us moving in a direction that we believe.”
He also discussed the darker tone to “Feels Like Summer,” Weezer’s latest single.
“I think it’s just where Rivers is at lyrically right now. I feel that everybody is encouraging him to take as much time as he needs to work on stuff. To me, it feels a bit more authentic than even the stuff we did on The White Album, lyrically. I like that personally. If somebody hears darker then that’s a matter of perception.
The band is complicated. Rivers is a very intense, deep guy and I feel like I’m hearing more of his person in the newer songs. That’s really interesting for me.”
