Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo Goes Looking for Love in Hilarious ‘Go Away’ Video

By Jake Hirshland

Rivers Cuomo goes looking for love using the latest dating app. Well, kinda.

In support of their recent collaboration with Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino, titled “Go Away,” Weezer has released a music video in which frontman Rivers Cuomo uses “Winder” (a play on Tinder), to woo his online crush. Dressing like a hipster DJ, a bleach-blond surfer dude, and a money-grubbing millionaire, Cuomo fails to attract his e-love, until he figures out the perfect con.

The fuzzy track comes from 2014’s Everything Will Be Alright in the End, the ninth studio record in Weezer’s lengthy career. Unlike the band’s preceding handful of releases, this album harkens clearly to their roots, feeding fans of the storied band the tinny guitar tones, chants, and insistent catchiness that attracted them to The Blue Album back in 1994.

The band is keeping busy this summer, aligning the video with a handful of upcoming festival and outdoor stadium gigs.

In the coming weeks, Weezer can be seen rocking through their vast discography in Portland, Montreal, and Detroit, among other North American cities.
