Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo has started a new band with Alister frontman Scott Murphy. Together, they are Scott & Rivers. Obviously. They have issued a self-titled release on iTunes. The lyrics are in Japanese for the most part.
The duo began working together back in 2009, when Cuomo heard Alister while Weezer was on tour in Japan.
They spent several years recording the album in both Los Angeles and Chicago.
"The album is kind of all over the board," Murphy said. "It'll definitely be hard for non-Japanese audiences to remember the lyrics to these songs, but the melodies are simple and catchy… if anything I think this record shows that the language of music is universal."
