Weezer are headed to Broadway for a residency taking place September 13 – 18 at the Broadway Theatre in New York City. The run will see the rockers performing songs from their seasonal SZNZ EP series including SZNZ: Spring and SZNZ: Summer, the latter of which arrived today on the Summer Solstice.

Weezer’s SZNZ: Spring fittingly came out on the Spring Equinox on March 20, 2022. Frontman Rivers Cuomo and company now follow with SZNZ: Summer which is out now. A press release for the project detailed the first two EPs in the series:

SZNZ: Summer, the second part in Weezer’s four-EP song cycle, continues the narrative started on SZNZ: Spring, bringing Pagan myths, Shakespeare, Catholic rituals, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, and more to life. It’s an angrier, indignant scorcher of an EP, taking the place of SZNZ: Spring’s light-hearted tone. SZNZ: Summer is the classic Weezer 90’s Alt rock sound filtered through 21st century production, making every note – and every emotion – bigger and bolder. Like on Spring, lyrics juxtapose ancient and modern elements right next to each other in a seamless way that only frontman Rivers Cuomo can make feel relatable and relevant.

Weezer’s Broadway residency will see the quartet — guitarists Rivers Cuomo and Brian Bell, bassist Scott Shriner and drummer Pat Wilson — dedicating a night to each SZNZ EP along with additional Weezer classics. The final evening will feature a mix of SZNZ songs and favorites from the previous shows.

Weezer took to Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to perform SZNZ: Summer cut “Records.” Watch the performance below:
