Weezer Performs New Song “The End of the Game” on Jimmy Kimmel Live
- American rock band Weezer appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform their new song “The End of the Game”.
The song is the lead single from Weezer’s upcoming album “Van Weezer”, which is expected to be released on May 15, 2020.
Frontman Rivers Cuomo told Zane Lowe on Lowe’s Apple Beats 1 show about the song. “It’s like The Blue Album but with more riffs,” he said. “Metal, hard rock riffs. But it’s still pretty catchy pop rock.”
He added about the album, “This is all from playing shows, and we just noticed over the last few years there’d be these moments during the show where I’d accidentally bust out a few harmonics or a whammy bar dive or a little tapping just because I can’t control myself. And we noticed like unlike in decades past, now the audience would go ballistic whenever they’d hear even a hint of that style. So I started doing it more and more. And soon I’m just like shredding through the whole show and we’re like, ‘Jeez, we should make an album like this.'”
The band announced they will be joining Green Day and Fall Out Boy on next year’s Hella Mega stadium tour, which will kick off on June 13, 2020 in Paris, France.
