Springfield, MO’s Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin have a put together a special release to celebrate their 10 year existence. After releasing three LPs, they were bound to have some extra material that never made it to the record stores. Those songs will now be getting their time in the spotlight with the release of Tape Club, a 26-song double album that brings you best of the SSLYBY archives. It will be available October 18th on limited edition 180-gram maroon 2xLP, CD, and digital formats via Polyvinyl, but can already stream it on the band’s bandcamp page now. The album’s title is a direct reference to a subscription service the band started in late 2005 to raise money for tour while copies of their debut Broom; things have come full circle! The next 10 years for SSLYBY can only go up from here!
Weezer looks to keep this year’s lovefest to fans going this November. The band has already put out a brand new album (Hurley) and announced a deluxe version of another one of their greats (Pinkerton).
Now the band has announced that come Nov 2nd (1st in the UK), Death To False Metal will hit stores with the best rarity album name of all time.
NME quoted frontman Rivers Cuomo as saying that the album features “great songs, great recordings, but for some reason they didn’t make the final cut for a record.” The tracks span the entire duration of the band; you can imagine the wide variety of styles on display.
The album cover is worth buying the CD alone, not including the ten brand new (to us) Weezer tracks. The entire set for what might be the coolest rarity album ever looks like this…

02 I Don’t Want Your Loving
03 Blowin’ My Stack
