Juno Award-winning rockers Billy Talent have joined forces with Rivers Cuomo of Weezer on their new single ‘End of Me.’ The song is the latest new music from the band, following a string of recent hits that include the No. 1 singles ‘Reckless Paradise’ and ‘I Beg to Differ (This Will Get Better),’ along with the anthemic prog-inspired ‘Forgiveness I + II.’
“This is a full circle moment for us.” “We’ve admired and have been fans of Weezer since the Blue Album until now. Before we had a title, this song was originally called ‘Hendrix+Weezer,’ so it only felt right to ask Rivers to sing on it. The song encompasses the essence of ’90s alt rock, which was a hugely impactful and influential time for our band. We’re proud of the song and very happy to have Rivers be a part of it.” Comment the band.
In addition to the new single, Billy Talent have completed recording and announced a release date for their forthcoming album CRISIS OF FAITH. The 10-track LP produced entirely by the band’s guitarist and main songwriter, Juno-nominated producer Ian D’Sa, in the band’s Toronto studio, being mixed by the legendary Chris Lord-Alge and set to drop 21st January 2022, via Spinefarm Records.
