WEEZER JOINS FORCES WITH US SOCCER FEDERATION

FOR NEW VIDEO


"REPRESENT" IS THE UNOFFICAL THEME SONG

FOR THE US MEN'S SOCCER TEAM DURING THE FIFA WORLD CUP


BRAND-NEW TRACK AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD ON ITUNES





Grammy award-winning alternative band WEEZER have partnered with the US Soccer Federation to create a video for their new song "Represent." The band, led by rabid soccer fan Rivers Cuomo, wrote and recorded the track to be used as the "unofficial theme song" for the US men's soccer team, and to commemorate the historic 2010 rematch of US vs. England in the FIFA World Cup- the first time the two teams have gone head-to-head since 1950. The song can be streamed at http://www.weezer.com. The video and an interview with Cuomo will premiere at ussoccer.org as part of their Studio 90 series on Wednesday June 23rd.



After triumphant appearances at Bamboozle and Bonnaroo WEEZER is also gearing up for a string upcoming of shows and festival appearances in the US and abroad. The band will appear at the Williamsburg Waterfront in Brooklyn, NY, the Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK and Seattle's Bumbershoot festival among others. See below for tour dates confirmed.



Raditude is the band's seventh studio effort. Released on November 3, 2009, the record debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart fueled by the Top 5 single, "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To." Their current single "Tripping Down the Freeway" is now at radio.
