Athlete are currently in the middle of a spring / summer U.S. tour in support of their latest album, Black Swan. The band’s new album is a musical summary of everything Athlete has been through, the good, the bad and the ugly. But although its songs burn with literate emotion, this certainly isn’t a downbeat record. In fact, the album begins with the hurtling FM rush of the glorious track, “Superhuman Touch,” which catapults the album to life with the opening line, “I’m on fire and nothing’s gonna hold me back.”
Grammy award-winning alternative band WEEZER have partnered with the US Soccer Federation to create a video for their new song “Represent.” The band, led by rabid soccer fan Rivers Cuomo, wrote and recorded the track to be used as the “unofficial theme song” for the US men’s soccer team, and to commemorate the historic 2010 rematch of US vs. England in the FIFA World Cup- the first time the two teams have gone head-to-head since 1950. The song can be streamed at www.weezer.com. The video and an interview with Cuomo will premiere at ussoccer.com as part of their Studio 90 series on Wednesday June 23rd.
