Cult rock/emo band Weezer hits the airwaves this year with a brand new video, oddly titled “Zombie Bastards.”
The band has brought classic hits since the 90s but only has recently reappeared in true pop sensation form with its previous single “Africa,” a cover of the 1980s pop hit by band Toto. For “Zombie Bastards” however, things are much darker and broodier with the visuals, revolving around a magnetically active liquid substance covering the “W” logo of the band. The chorus repeats “Die die, you zombie bastards!” in a contradictory jovial manner across the 4-minute long track.
Along with the new video, Weezer announces their next album will be titled ‘The Black Album.’ The LP will feature the band’s previous single “Can’t Knock the Hustle” and release on March 1, 2019.
In other pop music news, The Weeknd and Daft Punk are involved in a $5 million USD lawsuit over “Starboy.”
