Billy Talent released a new song with Rivers Cuomo from Weezer ahead of their new album ‘Crisis of Faith’ coming soon.
“This is a full circle moment for us,” the band says. “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.”
In addition to the new single, Billy Talent has completed recording and announced a release date for their forthcoming album ‘Crisis of Faith.’ The 10-track LP was produced entirely by the band’s guitarist and main songwriter, Juno-nominated producer Ian D’Sa, in the band’s Toronto studio. It was mixed by the legendary Chris Lord-Alge.
The album will drop on January 21, 2022.
Those who pre-order CRISIS OF FAITH will have the opportunity to win a one-of-a-kind Player Series Fender Stratocaster modeled after D’Sa’s own Strat. Click here for all the details.
In addition to being available digitally, on CD, and on vinyl LP, a special limited-edition Deluxe Vinyl Package of the new album is available for pre-order. A multi-channel Dolby Atmos mix of the album will also be available digitally.
