LOS ANGELES, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- The U.S. rock band Weezer is set to release the CD "Death to False Metal," its follow-up to "Hurley," Universal Music Enterprises said Tuesday.
The new album is to go on sale Nov. 2. "Hurley" was released last month.
"'Death to False Metal' is not a traditional collection of studio leftovers or songs from the vault, but a wholly original follow-up to Weezer's just-released 'Hurley,'" the record label said in a news release. "The album was created using the basic tracks of 10 previously unreleased recordings -- nine never-before-heard songs plus one cover -- to assemble a brand new and truly modern-sounding record. The result is an evolution for the band, a giant step forward with a nod to the past."
"These were great songs, great recordings, but for some reason they didn't make the final cut for previous records," Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo said. "Some just weren't right for the albums we were recording at the time -- just a bit ahead of their time or too 'rock.' Now, the time is right to introduce them. Together, they are the album that should logically follow 'Hurley.'"
