Deliverance At Hand! is an 18-track CD-R compilation of demos recorded in 2007 by Rivers Cuomo. It was presented to the rest of Weezer as potential songs for what would ultimately become The Red Album.

History

"Pig," the first demo leaked that was known to be from this compilation, began circulating online in April of 2007. The demo generated considerable excitement among fans and music critics, and alongside the hoax surrounding Weezer's sixth album, contributed to a growing buzz online. The demo was well-loved, generating a separate buzz over Deliverance at Hand! itself, apart from the upcoming album studio album. In 2020, Rivers Cuomo revealed on Riverpedia that he himself had been the one to leak the song.[1]

The Deliverance at Hand! versions of "I Don't Want to Let You Go" and "My Day Is Coming" were both released in November, 2008 on Alone II: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo. In 2018, the demos for "Piece of the Pie" and "King" had been recorded by a fan during a VIP session for the Summer 2018 Tour and were eventually leaked online in low quality. The complete compilation was officially released by Cuomo as a part of the Alone X: The Red-Raditude-Hurley Years demo bundle.

"Everybody Get Dangerous," "Heart Songs," and "The Angel and the One" were completed and released on Weezer (The Red Album), with "King," "Pig," and "Miss Sweeney" included on the deluxe edition. "I Don't Wanna Let You Go" was eventually released on Raditude while "Autopilot" and "The Odd Couple" became a part of the compilation album Death to False Metal.

Booklet

A lyric booklet, presumably made by Cuomo to accompany the compilation, has also leaked online. A modified version of the cover image from the booklet would later be used as the official cover for Death to False Metal.
