Weezer’s eponymous-titled 10th studio album, was released April 1, 2016 and is referred to as “The White Album”. Recent singles from this album include "King of the World," "Do You Wanna Get High?" and "Thank God for Girls."
"The inspiration behind the songs were my experiences hanging around the Westside of Los Angeles, which has been our home since Weezer began. Hanging out with people in Venice and Santa Monica, the beach, the Hare Krishnas, the Sikh on roller blades with the guitar, girls on Tinder within a 4 mile radius, seeing other bands, the kids from La Sera. I would just tweet out 'does anybody wanna hang?'," Cuomo told Rolling Stone. "And then I'd get together with people who responded and talk about life. I love California. I wanted the album to make you feel like you were there with us SoCal weirdos even if you're in Milwaukee in December.
Joining the tour will be The Trews and The Flatliners.
