Weezer’s devoted community of fans are getting more new music from the band than ever before, with the upcoming November 2nd release of Death To False Metal (DGC/UMe) – the band’s third release of the fourth quarter. Death To False Metal is not a traditional collection of studio leftovers or songs from the vault, but a wholly original follow-up to Weezer’s just-released Hurley. The album was created using the basic tracks of 10 previously unreleased recordings-nine never-before-heard songs plus one cover-to assemble a brand new and truly modern-sounding record. The result is an evolution for the band, a giant step forward with a nod to the past.
“These were great songs, great recordings, but for some reason they didn’t make the final cut for previous records,” Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo stated. “Some just weren’t right for the albums we were recording at the time-just a bit ahead of their time or too ‘rock.’ Now, the time is right to introduce them. Together, they are the album that should logically follow Hurley.”
