Okay, so maybe we were a little off: Weezer didn’t drop a brand new album today like we secretly hoped. However, the band did just announce a brand new, self-titled album (henceforth known as the White Album) to be released on April 1 on their new label, Crush Music, as well as a new single called “King Of The World” as well as a massive summer tour with none other than Panic! At The Disco (whose new single, “Victorious,” was co-written by none other than Panic!’s Brendon Urie and Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo. Synergy!) Opening each date will be Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness.

“This album was inspired by my experiences hanging around the Westside of Los Angeles, which has been our home since Weezer began,” says Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo. “Hanging out with people in Venice and Santa Monica, the beach, the Hare Krishnas, the Sikh on roller blades with the guitar, girls on Tinder within a 4 mile radius, seeing other bands, etc. I would just tweet out “does anybody wanna hang?” and then I’d get together with people who responded and talk about life. I love California. I wanted the album to have a Beach Boys sort of vibe to make you feel like you were there with us SoCal weirdos even if you’re in Milwaukee in December.”

You can find all the dates below as well as the White Album’s cover art and tracklisting, but not before you watch the “King Of The World” music video:
