Music Notes: Weezer debut new songs, The Decemberists announce tour dates

Sorry for the delay in Music Notes today... I've got some crazy weeks ahead of me at the moment, so life might delay a couple of posts here and there.

- Weezer debuted new songs at a South Korean festival Sunday night. The two songs are "I'm Your Daddy" and "The Girl Got Hot." Watch them here. Does the band have any of its old spark left? [SPIN]

- The Decemberists have announced a fall tour that will travel through parts of the United States, Canada and England. [Pitchfork]

- Fader is giving away tickets to New Jersey's All Points West festival. I would totally try going, but I'm moving this weekend... so I'll just sit here, reporting this information to you guys. [Fader]

- Arctic Monkeys will stream a live gig online on July 30 at 9 p.m. GMT. They'll showcase tracks from their upcoming album on their website. The gig will also be hosted on [NME]

- Mariah Carey, Diddy and Lil Wayne all have albums coming out — and each of these albums will now have delayed release dates. Carey's upcoming Memoirs, originally slated for an Aug. 25 release will now come out Sept. 15. Diddy (Sean Combs) told MTV News his album's been delayed thanks to Jay-Z and Drake. Lil Wayne's album, which had been slated for a June 23 release, is still delayed though a release date has not been confirmed yet. [Billboard]

- The Manic Street Preachers have announced their first US tour in 10 years. [NME]
