The commercial single “Pork & Beans” release date remains June 23rd.
***AND! In the USA...
There will be a 180 Gram Red Album deluxe edition vinyl LP! We dont have a release date yet but it will be fairly soon. Dont have the details yet, but it will probably be a 2 disc set with high quality packaging etc.
Check out Weezer Webisode #3, up now on Imeem.com!
I trust everyone is by now enjoying their regular or deluxe edition of the Red Album. If not, well what are you waiting for? The rock waits for no one!
After the shooting of the Pork And Beans video was completed, Tay Zonday sat down with weezer for an interview - as the interviewer! Excerpts and some video from this historic event are now on Mtv.com here.

...Weezer's "Say It Ain't So" got voted into the Rolling Stone's "Top 100 Guitar Songs Ever" at #72! (Also in the print edition).
...Deluxe Edition booklet typos: Okay there are a couple of intentional typos (they should be fairly obvious), several accidental ones and unfortunately a few key things were omitted from the booklet and will be included in future printings: #1 is the Miss Sweeney writing credit - Rivers did not write the song alone: our own Sarah C. Kim supplied some very key lyrics! And for "Automatic", Joe Baressi is supposed to be credited as an engineer. Sorry guys, we'll fix it in pressing #2, alsong with several typo errors in the interview parts.
