In 2014, it is widely agreed that the album is history and no one listens to a complete disk from beginning to end. For Rivers Cuomo There are two ways to respond to it. "You can go with the times, give, and give no particular difficulty with an album," he says. "Or they say, from artistic and creative reasons, we must do our utmost, that is an album that people want to listen. FOr this path we have chosen. "
FOr their ninth studio album have Weezer - Rivers Cuomo (vocals / guitar) Patrick Wilson (Drums), Brian Bell (Guitar) and Scott Shriner (Bass) - again teamed up with the man who has been the band already at their most successful drives to the side. Ric Ocasek, frontman of Cars, was also known as already at Weezers eponymous first album from 1994 ( The Blue Album) And its also self-titled third album also known as 2001 ( The Green Album) As a producer operates. The new album is one of the best comprehensive and versatile in Weezers work. It appears on the September 30, 2014 and is called "Everything Will Be Alright in the End ".
"In the studio we eventually heard: this is the right sound!" Says Cuomo. "Ric is a part of this chemistry. He has made his contribution to the songs, as he would have previously failed. When blue album we played the songs already and a half years in clubs, they were more or less finished. And the Green album I wanted to tell me of anyone what. now I'm much more open and collegial set."When the new song"Back to the Shack"In the second half of the chorus still needed some power, Ocasek said of the band that he as a synth melody heard and played it." She was so typical Ric and was a perfect fit for the song, "said Cuomo.
Between 2008 and 2010 Weezer were extremely productive and published "The Red Album","Raditude"And"Hurley". After these three years of extreme outputs them off deliberately down a gear and Cuomo took his time writing new songs." My instinct told me that I should let go slow and I believe that an album is better, the more time you give it to grow, "he explains." Then it is complex and multifaceted. The value of the four years it took to write the songs and arrange, evidenced by the fact that it reflects each of the four years in equal measure on the album. So it is not so that one or two of them were a waste of time. "
In "Everything Will Be Alright in the End", there are three thematically arranged groups of songs. When all the pieces were finished, the band met with Ocasek to three three-week recording sessions in January, March and June 2014. All sessions were held in the Village studios in Santa Monica in California. "I grew up with the romantic idea of working in a recording studio," says Cuomo. "I can not give up. I'm just excited and feel connected to the history of music when I'm in those rooms, where have been working my heroes."
After the album's release, the band would like to focus on sharing it at a special experience with the fans. You are planning a club tour through six cities in which they want to play live in full length "Everything Will Be Alright in the End". Here, the fans are happy to take part, you can, for example, the Chorus parts of the album singing.
"Weezer was always best as a joint venture," said Cuomo and remembers how the band around 1992 feilte in the clubs of L.A. on its can. "Since we were with our audience, not a big audience, only a few people who later came there were then a few hundred. If a band is successful, they easily lose contact with this community." In recent years, the band has consciously again approached the fans. "It started with Weezer Cruise", says Cuomo, "but we met after each show with fans and met them. Now it feels again like that, as if we were all in the same boat." This compound is reflected in his opinion in the music of Weezer down: "Of course we want to write the songs and play that express what the community wants - the songs that make us happy."
After some personnel changes at the beginning consist Weezer for 13 years in the same occupation. "We are most like together," says Cuomo About the quartet, "whether we get on a plane to play a few shows, playing at a concert extra long versions of songs and really listening to each other or putting on the headphones in the studio and we set to work to write a little bit rock history.
