“My name is Wepeel, I got a box full of your toys, I’m fresh out of batteries” and they’re done making noise.
Travis Castner and CJ Stewart enjoyed playing Weezer songs back in 2002 and formed Wepeel.
There has been a revolving door of band mates and with Castner moving to San Francisco, and Stewart wanting to focus on his other band (33 and a third), Stewart wasn’t interested in trying to find a new guitarist to replace Castner.
So Monday afternoon Stewart made an executive decision to end Wepeel and announced the decision on a My Space bulletin. “The other guys probably don’t even know yet,” said Stewart in a phone call moments after the bulletin was posted.
Wepeel is not breaking up because of recently released Weezer, Red Album, “Weezer’s Red album does suck really bad; but I don’t think that has anything to do with it.”
Wepeel played their last show Saturday the 27th at
“(Wepeel) played its course.”
