Greyhound to Galapagos with Rivers Cuomo in Crazy Weezer 'White Album' Pre-Sale
Weezer has announced its plans to release its 10th LP, The White Album, on April 1. But, if that's not enough for you, the "Do You Wanna Get High?" band has offered up one odd, exclusive pre-order item: a trip with Rivers Cuomo to the Galapagos Islands. Seriously.
On Weezer's web store, there's a pre-order option for the "Weezer Experience Bundle." In addition to typical pre-order items like a T-shirt, hat, crewneck sweatshirt and a Weezer Frisbee, for $25,000 (and travel expenses for Cuomo) fans will be able to take a Greyhound bus to the Galapagos with Cuomo, "where you'll stay only for a limited time."
If that weren't strange enough for you (how can one take a bus to an island?), there are some curious parameters for this trip, as you search for the "elusive White-cheeked pintail." You will be named "King of the World for a day" for one, and you will also be able to "sing 'The British Are Coming' with Rivers in the Galapagos but replace every lyric about 'old king George' to 'lonesome George.'"
There's no indication whether or not this is, in fact, a real pre-order package, but one can put the bundle in your cart and a note says that management will reach out about the details of the trip.
The White Album will officially be released on April 1. The album, led by singles "Do You Wanna Get High" and "Thank God for Girls" is Weezer's 10th studio effort and the band's first release since 2014's Everything Will Be Alright in the End.
