Weezer has officially joined the ranks of “indie band” again with the decision to leave Geffen Records late last year, which came as news via Billboard today along with an idea of how the band is going to be approaching their immediate future…

Weezer is taking it easy on the road this summer, however, with 13 mostly festival dates, and Shriner said he didn’t expect many more to be added. “There are a few dates getting filled in along the way, but I think our big focus is to hit these festivals,” he said. “I think we’re just kind of looking at efficiency and the way to reach the most people. I don’t know if anybody’s super excited about getting in a bus again right now. This just seems to be the way it’s going.”

We’ll be looking to the Bonnaroo performance as the “real” Weezer that we’ll likely see in their future. The band just released a new album called Raditude.
