Weezer's 1996 sophomore album Pinkerton, a frustrated tangle of confused lyrics and insidious power-pop hooks, didn't do so well when the band first released it, but now it's in heavy competition with the band's self-titled debut for the title of Everyone's Favorite Weezer Album. And on November 2, DGC/UMe will release Pinkerton as a double-disc deluxe reissue, with 25 bonus tracks alongside the original album. We've got the tracklist below.
The reissue includes every one of the album's B-sides, as well as 16 previously unreleased songs, including a number of live tracks. The package will also include a booklet with photos and an essay from band friend Karl Koch.
In keeping with the nostalgia trend, Weezer have announced the "Memories" tour this fall. They'll play two shows in every city; at the first, they'll play the "Blue Album" in its entirety, and they'll play Pinkerton at the second (along with various hits at both shows). The band already scheduled shows in L.A. and San Francisco, and now they've announced on their website that they've added a pair of Boston shows: December 14-15 at the Orpheum Theatre.
