Just a week after Weezer unveiled their intriguing album cover art for their upcoming record Everything Will Be Alright In the End, the band has revealed a release date for the project.
In a YouTube clip released yesterday (July 8), the band lets the world know that on Sept. 30, 2014, they’ll be hearing new music from the band. The video is titled “Return To Ithaca” and gritty guitar and striking piano is heard in the background as well as snippets of some of the music off the record.

In an interview with, the band offered a telling description of the new album. “If you took the Pinkerton band and then play all the other records — that’s what we sound like now,” drummer Patrick “Frisbee Wizard” Wilson said. “Bombastic, loose, kind of booming. This record sounds like it’s going to have the tight structure of Blue Album with a little bit more abandon like Pinkerton.“

99Rock Music News:  Watch Interpol’s Surftacular Video for ‘All the Rage Back Home’

Interpol will offer up their fifth full-length album on Sept. 9, titled El Pintor. The collection will be released by Matador Records, and will open with the peppy bounce of lead song, “All the Rage Back Home,” for which a music video has dropped yesterday (July 9).

Peppy by Interpol’s standards, of course; not peppy by, say, Miley Cyrus’ standards.
The black-and-white video, directed by frontman Paul Banks and collaborator Sophia Peer, finds the band performing the new song in a darkened room. Meanwhile, shots outside said room are spliced into the picture, featuring large, rushing waves.

Those waves are traversed by the video’s secondary star: a surfer, who has quite the skill, doing some acrobatics over the surges with nary a bobble.

Maybe you’re a massive Red Hot Chili Peppers fan looking to buy a house in the Los Angeles area — oh, and you’re loaded, too.

If so, the band’s notorious bass player Flea is selling his estate in the city’s Griffith Park area for just under $7 million.

According to Curbed Los Angeles, the property is packed with local history. It was built in 1925 by Van Griffith, the son of Griffith J. Griffith, the original benefactor for nearby Griffith Park, home to all sorts of attractions, including the Griffith Observatory and popular outdoor concert venue, the Greek Theatre.
The .78-acre location is loaded with amenities, such as a saltwater swimming pool and a loggia with an outdoor fireplace. The main house features four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and even a speakeasy. The guest house was recently remodeled, with two bedrooms and a wood-burning fireplace.

Prospective buyers can see more photos and set an appointment to view the property at
