Biography

Los Angeles, United States (1992 – present)

Weezer is an American rock band. Formed in 1992, they have released eight full length albums, six EPs, and a DVD. Their latest album, Hurley, was released on September 14th, 2010. They have sold over 9 million records in the United States to date. They are also part of the 1990s reinvention movement along with bands like Sunny Day Real Estate and Texas Is the Reason.

Weezer formed in Los Angeles, California by Rivers Cuomo, Patrick Wilson, Matt Sharp, and Jason Cropper, who was later replaced by Brian Bell. Five weeks after forming, they had their first gig, opening for Dogstar at Raji’s Bar and Ribshack on Hollywood Boulevard. Weezer began playing clubs to small audiences around L.A. and recording home-demos. Soon the band began to receive attention from various A&R reps, and were signed on June 26, 1993 by Todd Sullivan, an A&R rep from Geffen Records. The band was signed onto the DGC label (which later became Interscope).

Creating “The Blue Album” (1993-1994)

The self-titled debut, Weezer, commonly referred to as The Blue Album, was released May 10, 1994. “Undone - The Sweater Song”, “Buddy Holly” and “Say It Ain’t So” were released as singles. The album was produced by former The Cars frontman Ric Ocasek. During the recording of the Blue Album, Jason Cropper left the band to take care of his future wife, who was pregnant with their first child. Jason was replaced by Brian Bell, a then bassist from a band called Carnival Art.

    Weezer шикарнейшая группа, оч большой фан так скажем. Только вот сомневаюсь, что будущий альбом будет хорош. Не будет уже того "как раньше"

    It's just refreshing to hear a good modern Weezer song.

    The glory days are long gone (as they are for most of my favourite teen-year bands), but Cleopatra is the most promising Weez track i've heard in a long time. He's probably trolling us, but my hope for the album being half-decent has been raised. These little rays of hope are what makes you so infuriating Rivers!!

    New album's gonna be great. Hopefully, people will buy it this time so that Rivers doesn't lose his mind and leave us again.
