Billy Talent Announce 'Crisis of Faith' Album, Share New Single with Weezer's Rivers Cuomo
Listen to "End of Me" now
Published Sep 10, 2021Having released a few new songs in recent years, Toronto rock lifers Billy Talent have announced a new album. Crisis of Faith is out through Warner Music on January 21, 2022, and the band have shared a new single featuring Weezer's Rivers Cuomo.
The album was produced by Billy Talent's own Ian D'Sa in the group's Toronto studio, with mixing handled by Chris Lord-Alge (Prince, Green Day, James Brown). The tracklist includes recent singles "Forgiveness I + II," "Reckless Paradise" and "I Beg to Differ (This Will Get Better)."
To coincide with the album announcement, Billy Talent have shared the new single "End of Me." Regarding the song's guest appearance from Rivers Cuomo, the band said in a statement, "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 90's 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."
