Billy Talent Released An Infectious New Track Featuring Rivers Cuomo ‘End Of Me’

Billy Talent are back!!!

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.”

Check out ‘End Of Me’ below.
