Having completed its promotional obligations for their 2005 album "Make Believe," Weezer has begun a hiatus of undetermined length
Successfully completed their promotional task on album "Make Believe," and following frontman Rivers Cuomo plans to graduate from Harvard University in June with a degree in English, music group Weezer is taking a hiatus of undetermined length. Despite such fact, the group's Geffen Records label is planning to release an as-yet-untitled live Weezer DVD sometime this year.
As said in Weezer's official Web site (http://www.weezer.com), the set will center on a seven-camera concert shoot and will also feature behind-the-scenes footage which was captured last month during a tour through Japan.
In related news, the band's drummer Pat Wilson is reported building a home studio and about to collaborate with guitarist Brian Bell to record a cover of the Velvet Underground's "Heroin." The set is then featured in the upcoming drama flick "Factory Girl." The film, stars Guy Pearce and Sienna Miller, is slated for a September U.S. release date.
