Weezer launched an ambitious and typically quirky project a few months back with the release of SZNZ: Spring, the first of four-part seasonal EP series from Rivers Cuomo and his musical pals that was partially inspired by Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons.

The EP scored yet another radio hit for the band in “A Little Bit of Love,” which became Weezer’s 8th tune to hit No. 1 on the Alternative charts.

Today, June 21 (the Summer Equinox, of course), the second chapter landed in the form of SZNZ: Summer, a 7-song set led by the single “Records,” which the band debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live:

And here’s the full SZNZ: Summer EP:

In addition to dropping the new music, Weezer also announced a very special short Broadway residency at the Broadway Theatre, promising to play all four of the SZNZ EPs, as well as more material spanning the band’s entire career:

The run, which will happen September 13 through September 18, will be unlike any shows Weezer have played before. Each night’s show will not only correspond with a different season’s EP, but will see the band reaching deep into their catalog to play a unique set of Weezer classics, many of which have not been played in years. A fifth night of shows will be a mix of all the songs from SZNZ and Weezer fan favorites from the previous four nights.

Weezer is Brian Bell (backing vocals, guitar), Rivers Cuomo (vocals, guitar, piano), Scott Shriner (backing vocals, bass), and Pat Wilson (drums).
