Slam Dunk Festival will take play May 2023 on 27th at Hatfield Park and Temple Newsam Park, Leeds on the 28th.
Their new release, ‘End Of Me’, is a quirk-filled rock and roll that Billy Talent have produced so wonderfully. Plus it features Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo.
The band had this to say about the collaboration:
“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.”
