Weezer’s “Pacific Daydream” has finally been announced for release on October 27 and is shaping up to be a make-or-break album for critics and fans alike moving forward.
The band’s frontman, Rivers Cuomo, hinted at the forthcoming album calling it the “Black Album” in contrast to the previously release “White Album,” acclaimed for it’s fun, surf-rock vibes and a welcome turning-point in their discography. But Cuomo wants to do his own thing on “Pacific Daydream” rather than trying to meet the expectation of nostalgic fans, and rightfully so.
He is calling this album a mix of “The Beach Boys and The Clash” which sounds like a rough combination. If they stick with the surf-rock vibes that worked so well on the “White Album” over “The Clash” then it may be another classic Weezer album and not another 00s throwaway. But if Weezer has proven anything in their 25 year-long career it’s that they have a tendency mess good things up. Let’s see what happens!
