Rooney Record Release Show

Teragram Ballroom

Los Angeles, 90017

8:00pm

You can go ahead and call Rooney's new album, Eureka, their declaration of independence. After several years trudging under the weight of a major label deal that never quite fit them right, the Los Angeles band is making a bold, fresh start: Rooney recorded and produced Eureka themselves, and will be releasing the disc June 8th on their own new label, California Dreamin' Records through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group. The 12-track Eureka is their most mature, nuanced collection yet, and still retains their classic buoyancy and catchiness. Eleven years after they started the band as teenaged friends with a shared love of the Beatles, Cheap Trick and ELO, lead singer and guitarist Robert Schwartzman, keyboard player / vocalist Louie Stephens, guitarist / vocalist Taylor Locke, and drummer / vocalist Ned Brower have grown into a modern power-pop band in a class of their own. Over the years, they've toured with everyone from Weezer and The Strokes, winning new fans among all those audiences. "I don't think there are any modern bands that we have much in common with," says Locke. - See more at: http://www.teragramballroom.com/event/1120005-rooney-record-release-show...
