New Weezer Single 'Hero' Dropping This Week

Another sample of 'Van Weezer' is on the way

May 5, 2020

Way back in September, Weezer dropped a new single called "The End of the Game," the first preview of the band's upcoming album, Van Weezer. Since then, we haven't seen hide nor hair of the record, but that will finally change this week.

According to a tweet from Rivers Cuomo and company, a second Van Weezer song, called "Hero," will drop this Wednesday, May 6.

Van Weezer, which follows 2019's Black Album and the all-covers Teal Album, is due out May 15. As the Van Halen-referencing title suggests, Van Weezer is supposed to be heavier guitar record compared to more recent Weezer efforts.

This summer, Weezer is scheduled to hit the road in support of Van Weezer on the Hella Mega tour with Green Day and Fall Out Boy. The first few European dates of the international trek have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the U.S. leg, set to kick off in July, is still on the books.
