Weezer DVD planned… and Rivers takes soccer break

Not only are plans afoot for a Weezer DVD, but frontman Rivers Cuomo is taking a holiday to catch himself some World Cup action!

The official Weezer website, www.weezer.com states that the band are currently holed up in a Tokyo recording studio, after which Rivers will watch some football!

Known to be a bit of a fan, it’s expected that the rest of the band will fly home to LA whilst Rivers stays in Tokyo. Upon his return the band will embark on a massive US tour in July, where they will have the likes of Dashboard Confessional, Sparta and The Strokes in tow. Of course they are also pencilled in to play the Reading and Leeds festivals.

The website also suggests that a Weezer DVD is in the works and could be released by the end of the year. However, the site does add that all details are subject to change

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
