What’s A Maladroit?

Weezer gives new album an actual title

Weezer’s next album will have a name instead of a colour.

The band’s website confirmed that Weezer’s new disc has been dubbed “Maladroit,” after the name was suggested by a fan on the group’s bulletin board.

Dubbing the album “Maladroit” “means that the ‘colour’ theme will not be revisited this time around. Maladroit, by the way, means inept, clumsy, awkward or unskilled.

The site said the new disc will include “Take Control,” “Dope Nose” and “Keep Fishin’,” all of which were tried out in concert during the last year. The band has also been posting demos for the new album online. Want to hear some of those demos?
