Billy Talent announce 6th album and Rivers Cuomo guest slot
September 11, 2021
The ever excellent Billy Talent will be releasing their sixth album on January 21st 2022, called Crisis of Faith. Which is good, but most people are here because of the Rivers Cuomo thing so: Billy have released the first single off the album and it’s heavily influenced by Weezer and has the frontman on it.
Billy Talent have “admired and have been fans of Weezer since the ‘Blue Album’ until now,” a press release said, “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.”
