Rivers Cuomo to release solo material

Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo has ended his educational sabbatical.? We know that since the summer Weezer has been hard at work on their sixth LP and when not doing the the musician thing, Cuomo was fast at work penning his first autobiography.

That book was supposed to be released this winter, but according to Filter Magazine, the tome is approaching Tolstoyian proportions at 400 pages. ? The book has been shelved by the publishing house until completion, but Geffen Records plans to release an album full of Cuomo solo material this December.

Alone – The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo will slide nicely into an Weezer fans’s collection on Dec. 11, put probably as a nice little stocky stuffer.? The even better news is that all the? recordings took place from 1992-1997, which coincides with the time period known as the “creatively awesome era” in the Weezer canon.? In case you were wondering the “creatively awesome era” saw the release of The Blue Album and Pinkerton, respectively.

Everything after that has just been bullocks. ? You can check him out on Myspace where he made the casual announcement.
