When I first heard the band name Tweaker many years ago, I didn’t have much association to work with. But then, upon learning that it is a project from Chris Vrenna, who was a member of Nine Inch Nails as well as the composer of American McGee’s Alice, my ears perked up and my radar was set abuzz.
Now, years later, Tweaker is back with a third album, Call The Time Eternity. It’s been eight years since 2a.m. Wakeup Call, so has time treated this group well or should they have stayed in the shadows? Find out below. READ MORE
Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson) has announced the return of Tweaker! It’s been eight years since 2 a.m. Wake Up Call and now he’s back with Call The Time Eternity, which will come out Oct. 23rd via Metropolis Records. The album will feature a guest appearance from Collide‘s kaRIN.
Vrenna describes, “Every tweaker record is a mix of instrumental music and vocal songs. During the writing and recording process, tracks will naturally evolve into one or the other.”
Vrenna explains his decision to record a cover of Phil Collins‘ “I Don’t Care Anymore” for the album, “I do love Phil’s drumming! He really broke new ground both in the grooves he created, but also in the way his drums were recorded and sounded. I especially loved the darkness and sadness he explored lyrically in his solo records. While working on tweaker, ‘I Don’t Care Anymore’ began haunting me. For a few weeks every time I got in the car, it came on the radio. It happened so many times that I took it as a sign.”
