Cuomo told Good Morning America ahead of the band's U.S. outing with Green Day and Fall Out Boy on their long-awaited HELLA MEGA TOUR, that Weezer​’s follow-up to their orchestral OK Human and rock-heavy Van Weezer 2021 albums will be called Seasons. Fans can expect each of the four planned albums to be released at the start of spring, summer, fall, and winter of 2022.

"I guess I’ve had a lot of time on my hands so I wrote four albums that we’ll put out next year,” Rivers told GMA. "It's called 'Seasons,' and each album comes out on the first day of the season. Spring is kind of like happy chill. And then we move through to dance rock, like a Strokes-style album for the fall, and then sad acoustic, Elliott Smith-style for winter."

Cuomo was joined by Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong who said he's "looking forward to playing again... I love playing live, and it’s the biggest tour of the summer with three really fun bands, so it should be great.” Weezer also performed their single "Hero" during the morning visit which you can watch in full above.
