Biography

Los Angeles, United States (1992 – present)

Weezer is an American band. Formed in 1992, they have released eight full length albums, six EPs, and a DVD. Their latest album, titled ‘Everything Will Be Alright in the End’, came out on October 17th, 2014. They’ve sold over nine million records in the United States to date. Playing music influenced by bands and artists among others, they’re sometimes viewed as a part of the movement.

Weezer started in Los Angeles, California when Rivers Cuomo joined with 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 homemade demos. The group soon received attention from various A&R reps, and the guys were signed on June 26, 1993 by Todd Sullivan, an A&R rep from Geffen Records. The band became a part of the DGC label (which later turned into Interscope).

Creating “The Blue Album” (1993-1994)

The self-titled debut, ‘Weezer’, commonly referred to as ‘The Blue Album’, came out on May 10, 1994. It picked up considerable acclaim. Tracks “Undone (The Sweater Song)” (also known as “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.

    Reading shouts on Weezer albums is the best; they're pretty much the same for all of them.

    Wow, The Futurescope Trilogy is incredible. I did not expect something like that at the end of a Weezer album!
