Weezer is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, CA in 1992, currently consisting of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, lead guitar), Patrick Wilson (drums), Brian Bell (rhythm guitar, backing vocals, keyboards), and Scott Shriner (bass, backing vocals). Weezer has sold 9.2 million albums in the U.S., and over 17 million records worldwide. Their catalogue has included such megahits as “Buddy Holly,” “Undone (The Sweater Song),” “Say It Ain’t So,” “El Scorcho,” “Hash Pipe,” “Island In The Sun,” “Beverly Hills,” “Pork and Beans,” and more. Weezer has won GRAMMYs, MTV Video Music Awards, and more throughout their career.  In 2016, Weezer released their tenth studio album, Weezer (The White Album), a self-proclaimed beach album that debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Rock/Alternative chart, and top 5 on the Billboard 200 chart.   The band then embarked on a massive, two-month summer tour playing to half a million people across the U.S.

The Pauses‘ (who prefer that their possessive noun-ing be spelled Pauseses) overall sound is one anchored in complexion and combination, a world where guitars are BFFs with synthesizers, horns, bells, and ukuleles. Tierney Tough’s bright, fresh voice glides just as easily atop the breathy sparkle and agile math of “Go North” as it does the indie-pop sway and post-hardcore torque of “Beyond Bianca.” From the serious, atmospheric mood of “The Migration” and “Pull the Pin” to the lithe, glitchy charm of “Hands Up”. The Pauses got mad range, often in the same song. Rooted in the dynamics and ethos of ’90s indie rock, their sound is a balancing act between rock and electronics, airiness and heft, suppleness and angularity. And their debut album, “A Cautionary Tale” (produced by J. Robbins of Jawbox and Burning Airlines) shows that you can explore without losing your core.

Since the album’s release, The Pauses have released a split 12″, contributed a track to a Jason Noble Benefit Compilation, played multiple festival showcases, invented Interact-O-Vision (a live interactive media show component), had songs featured in Harmonix’s Rock Band and multiple films and have literally shared the stage (with members filling in as backup musicians) with War on Women, The Posies, Matt Pond PA, Davey Von Bohlen, Jonah Matranga, and John Vanderslice.
