An instantly recognizable cultural touchstone of the 1990s, “Weezer” (the Blue Album) has garnered such a firm place in the musical pantheon of the last three decades that it serves as an entry point into music for nascent listeners. A testament to the band’s staying power, tracks such as, “Buddy Holly” and “Say It Ain’t So,” have earned hundreds of millions of streams and endless placements in TV shows and movies.

Formed in Los Angeles, CA in 1992, Weezer currently consists of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, lead guitar), Patrick Wilson (drums), Brian Bell (rhythm guitar, backing vocals, keyboards) and Scott Shriner (bass, backing vocals).  Weezer has sold 10 million albums in the U.S. and over 35 million records worldwide. Their catalog has included such megahits as “Buddy Holly,” “Undone (The Sweater Song),” “Say It Ain’t So,” “El Scorcho,” “Hash Pipe,” “Island In The Sun,” “Beverly Hills,” “Pork and Beans” and many more. The band has won GRAMMY’s®, MTV Video Music Awards and more throughout their career.

Following massively-acclaimed album releases in 2016 and 2017 (“Weezer” [The White Album] and Pacific Daydream, respectively) and two sold-out amphitheater tours with Panic! At the Disco (2016) and Pixies (2018), Weezer released a fan-inspired cover of Toto’s “Africa.” The cover propelled the band back into the charts across the board, giving them their fifth number one, 10th top five and 16th top 10 on alternative radio and it has since gone platinum. They then surprise dropped a covers album at the start of 2019, “Weezer” (The Teal Album), which has been streamed over 100M times since its release. In 2021, Weezer released two very different but equally Weezer albums–“OK Human,” an orchestral pop album meditating on technology and disconnectedness and “Van Weezer,” an homage to the band’s shared metal roots growing up. “OK Human’s” first single, “All My Favorite Songs,” was one of the biggest rock hits of 2021 and was subsequently nominated for a GRAMMY® for Best Rock Song. In 2022, the band released “SZNZ,” a four EP project inspired by Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and completed the European leg of the Hella Mega tour, which sold out stadiums in America throughout the year prior. In 2023, the band embarked on an incredible sold-out run across North America called the Indie Rock Road Trip, which was hailed as one of the best tours of the summer.
