Weezer Smell Success With HurleyAccording to the LA Times, actor Jorge Garcia, who played the character Hurley in popular TV series "Lost," came onstage to perform “Perfect Situation” with Weezer while they were playing a secret show on Tuesday night at the Dunes Inn Hotel in Hollywood as part of Axe's One Night Only music series.

Before the music started, Jorge Garcia, the face of Weezer's latest album cover, took the stage just before 9 pm and introduced the band as "my new best friends." The actor has featured in the world of Weezer since the group chose his picture to grace the cover of Hurley. Videos of Garcia's rendition of "Perfect Situation," from Weezer's 2007 Make Believe album, can be viewed on YouTube.

In August, Guardian.co.uk revealed that the album is not, in fact, named after the fictional character, but named after a multinational clothing brand.

According to Brian Bell, Weezer's guitarist, surfwear company Hurley International "was funding the record at the beginning of the process". "We actually did some sort of advertisement [deal]," he said in an interview at the Mile High festival. "I don't even know how they're tied in so much, although we got some clothes [from them] and we did a photoshoot where we're wearing these clothes, and I think we're selling these clothes in malls." Hurley International, which specialises in skate and surf gear, is owned by Nike.

Weezer were the headlining act at the Hurley-sponsored US Open of Surfing, and helped judge a Hurley T-shirt design contest earlier this summer.

Hurley is the first album Weezer has recorded for indie label Epitaph.

Later, the band was joined by My Chemical Romance, who performed "My Name Is Jonas" with Weezer, one of a number of tunes played from the group's landmark 1994 debut album, known as The Blue Album.

The band embarks on their multi-city "Blinkerton" tour later this year. They play The Blue Album, and their 1996 cult classic Pinkerton in back-to-back shows beginning this November.

Rivers Cuomo earned his Axe paycheck, name-dropping the body-spray brand at least three times during the band's one-hour show, reveling in the sweet smell of success.

R.E.M. is set to release its new album Collapse Into Now on March 7. The band has released the lead-track "Discoverer" as a free download from its official website. R.E.M. has further confirmed that the record will be available for iTunes pre-order on December 21. Listen to "Discoverer" here.

The release date of R.E.M.'s fifteenth studio album was reported by NME.

A feature on R.E.M and the making of the band's new album is also due to appear in the January edition of Q Magazine.

In the article, Peter Buck (guitar) and Mike Mills (bass and keyboards) talk about recording at the fabled Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin, the band's time in New Orleans during the making of Collapse Into Now, how the album got its name, and about the guests who appear on the new record.

R.E.M. spent the summer in Hansa Studios, Berlin, where David Bowie recorded his landmark Heroes album in 1977 and U2 reinvented themselves with Achtung Baby.

“Great records were made there and I’m sure horrible records were made there, too,” Buck joked. “But you think about the good ones.”
