Last weekend, Weezer escaped a wintry America and hit the high seas, setting sail on the latest Weezer Cruise. In addition to partying alongside Cat Power, Toro Y Moi, DIIV, and several other Rivers Cuomo-approved acts, the band delivered their own headlining set and debuted a brand new anthem titled, “Back to the Shack”.
Once again, the band remains just as self-aware as anything they’ve put out over the last decade. Cuomo riffs on reality television and even name checks drummer Pat Wilson, and despite the lyrical cheese, the song’s pretty catchy. It also leads into one torrential drum finale, which must have scared a dozen sharks underseas.
Check it out below.
In case you missed it, our recent Alternate History X speculated on what might have happened to Weezer had Pinkerton been a major success in 1996. Add your two cents here.
