Count Avenged Sevenfold as fans of Weezer‘s SZNZ: Autumn EP.
All five members of the “Bat Country” outfit listed Autumn — one of four seasonally themed EPs Rivers Cuomo and company released last year — as one of their top-five albums of 2022. Frontman M. Shadows also included SZNZ: Summer in his list.
A7X’s Weezer love made it back to the “Buddy Holly” rockers, who tweeted, “Looks like @TheOfficialA7X liked SZNZ: Autumn.”
We can only hope that Avenged Sevenfold’s Weezer fandom leads to a collaboration between the two bands. While that may seem unlikely, we do live in a world where someone on Twitter convinced Weezer to cover Toto‘s “Africa,” which became the band’s biggest hit in 10 years.
In addition to making its way into the ears of Avenged Sevenfold, Weezer also played songs from SZNZ during their seasonal residency on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! throughout 2022. Meanwhile, Cuomo recently told Consequence that Weezer is planning a “big tour announcement coming soon.”
