Watch Pete Wentz channel Rivers Cuomo in new Weezer video
Weezer make good on their "Black Album" promises by announcing the followup to last year's Pacific Daydream with a bizarre new video starring Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz as a Rivers Cuomo-esque rideshare driver. Watch it below.
Transporting a particularly aggressive couple around Los Angeles, "Rivers Wentz" awkwardly presents the first song from Weezer's upcoming 12th studio album in the Jerry Media-produced video for "Can't Knock The Hustle."
Produced by TV On The Radio mastermind Dave Sitek, here working with the band for the first time, the long-rumored "Black Album" (Weezer's fifth color-coded, eponymous affair) is due out next year from Crush Music/Atlantic Records.
The sweater-wearers released one-off single "California Snow" last month, the Spell soundtrack song following Weezer's social media-driven, novelty Toto cover, "Africa." Weezer hit the road with the Pixies again in 2019; get the dates after the vid.
