Their new album 'Hurley' is due to be released on Sept. 13, but it is 'Pinkerton' that bass player Brian Bell is hoping to resurrect when the band go on the road.
In an interview with Altpress backstage at a Colorado music festival last week, Bell said, "We have a reissue of 'Pinkerton' coming out with new packaging. And I'm praying a 'Pinkerton' tour, where we'll play all the songs off 'Pinkerton' soon."
'Pinkerton' was Weezer's second album and reached No. 19 in the US Billboard 2000. The album featured bass player Matt Sharp, who left the band in 1998, to be replaced by Mikey Welsh who himself was later replaced by Scott Shriner.
Weezer are due to appear at Reading and Leeds festivals this month, while the first single from 'Hurley,' entitled 'Memories,' is currently streaming at Weezer's Myspace and is also available for digital download.
The reissue of 'Pinkerton' is due out on Oct. 5 through Geffen.
