Weezer say Maladroit

Rivers Cuomo and the boys have officially announced the title of their fourth record.

On their website, www.weezer.com, the boys state: “Thats right, it’s official: Weezer‘s 4th album, currently in the mixing stage and due for release in April, is entitled “Maladroit.”

“This means that the ‘colour’ theme will not be revisited this time round, (as fiercely debated by fans) and there will only be 2 self titled weezer records. (so far at least!)

“The name was originally suggested on the weezer.com message boards by board member “lethe”, who will be officially credited for the idea.

“Tracks will indeed include the barnstorming “Take Control”, “Dope Nose” and “Keep Fishin”, all fan faves at live shows over the past year.”

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.
