Juno Award-winning rockers Billy Talent have joined forces with Rivers Cuomo of Weezer on their new single “End of Me.”

The song is the latest new music from the band, following a string of recent hits that include the No.1 singles “Reckless Paradise” and “I Beg to Differ (This Will Get Better),” along with the anthemic prog-inspired “Forgiveness I + II.”

Of the new single, the band say, “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 90s 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.”

In addition to the new single, Billy Talent has completed recording and announced a release date for their forthcoming album Crisis of Faith. The ten track LP was produced entirely by the band’s guitarist and main songwriter, Juno-nominated producer Ian D’Sa, in the band’s Toronto studio and was mixed by the legendary Chris Lord-Alge. The album will drop on January 21, 2022. Those who pre-order Crisis of Faith will have the opportunity to win a one-of-a-kind Player Series Fender Stratocaster modelled after Ian’s own Strat.

In addition to being available digitally, on CD, and on Vinyl LP, a special limited-edition Deluxe Vinyl Package of the new album is available for pre-order. A multi-channel Dolby Atmos mix of the album will also be available digitally.
