When you see that Weezer is still making music at a high level, decades after their introduction to the musical world, you can’t help but smile. Weezer, much like the Pixies, have become indie-rock royalty. It only makes sense that these two grunge-oriented, indie rock groups would team up for a big tour that we never realized we needed. It was recently announced that Weezer and the Pixies would be co-headlining a massive tour that would go throughout the Summer of 2018. Tickets will be released for sale on November 10th, 2017 and it is expected that they’ll go quick. The Wombats will also be coming into play support at a few select show dates.
Weezer has been riding high off of the release of their latest record, ‘Pacific Daydream’. ‘Pacific Daydream’ released just a week ago via their label Crush Music/Atlantic. The album has already gotten incredible critical and commercial reviews with the track ‘Happy Hour’ doing most of the heavy lifting. Weezer recently performed on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ and the group seemed in as fine a form as ever. Butch Walker, a famous writer, producer and musician himself, helped to produce ‘Pacific Daydream’. The work on ‘Pacific Daydream’ was described, through a press release, as ‘reveries from a beach at the end of the world’.
With Weezer embracing their ability to dig deep, the Pixies ended up making a gret complement. The Pixies got back together in 2004 and they most recently released their newest album, ‘Head Carriers’. Since getting back together in 2004, this is only the second album that the Pixies have put out. Black Francis, a member of the Pixies, said of the recently announced tour: “We’re all big Weezer fans, so we’re really looking forward to this summer.” Francis went on to compliment Weezer’s ability to ‘rake risks’ with the way that they approach music. The new look Pixies, featuring Paz Lenchantin of A Perfect Circle, will seek to continue their meteoric comeback.
