Hopefully soonMichael Rowland (Gohi) said:I doubt they'll stop making albums. Rivers is feeling pretty dejected I would assume, from Hurley and Raditude's poor sales... but I also think he loves the process of putting together and releasing albums too much to just quit it. So I think that Weezer will definitely make another album, the question is: when?
If it was a retread of the albums that preceded it, then no thank you. Rivers' talking about how he wanted to take things slow and carefully and not put out a Rocky 8 really excited me, I'd love to hear a mainstream-pop departure from the band, it'd be a tremendous step in growth considering they've been playing it safe for the past decade. I want the 'dark and experimental' Weezer direction that Rivers speculated he'd start writing in after Pinkerton.
America said:yeah but apparentl that album was scrapped somewhere down the line...shame, i really want to hear those songs
WeezerSituation said:Remember.. Rivers said Album 10 so far sounds like a hipster riding their bike with a slurpee in hand or something random like that lmfao
I still want to hear the Slurpee songs lol
gossip; hearsay: Don't listen to rumor.
I agree, it's quality over quantity for one thing. Giving the fans time to breathe and anticipate albums also helps in making them more of an event. Too many releases could possibly make you wind up LESS relevant because you fall into the background and just become noise while other bands are getting your attention because their new release is more of a big deal.
Not to mention giving more time to actually think through and work on the album to ensure it's the best it can be can't possibly be a bad thing.
Weezer should really ask themselves if the last few releases were their best work. And if they cannot HONESTLY say it was, then they should dedicate themselves to doing the absolute best work they can for the next record. Otherwise this whole deal isn't really worth it, is it?

I find his point about needing to have constant releases to stay relevant completely wrong. Look at the Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters and Radiohead. They have all taken half a decade to put out their new albums and they still remain extremely relevant both in the mainstream and in rock culture. I would think constant releases would saturate rock and people would grow tired of Weezer which many people probably already have.
i love the fact that you have been making a album every year for the past three years but maybe if you make one every 2 years people will start to miss you more, people will want to hear from you again and they'll want to listen more.
