New Weezer Album Rumored For October 27 Release

It looks like word has leaked about Weezer's new album, Pacific Daydream -- reportedly coming October 27.

Britain's New Musical Express reports that the news was inadvertently shared by a Florida radio station on a contest page for a meet-and-greet with the quartet in Miami; It was subsequently deleted, but not before word began to spread.

The album will be Weezer's first since the latest Weezer (aka "The White Album"), which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock album, in 2016. The group has already released one single from the new set, "Feels Like Summer," with another track, "Mexican Fender," slated to drop soon.

Weezer has sporadic shows booked in the U.S. and Europe into early January.
