Rooney set to release “Eureka” in June

Rooney
Los Angeles quartet Rooney are very proud to announce the release of their new album, EUREKA. Produced and crafted entirely by the band, EUREKA will be released June 8th on California Dreaming Records through Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group. The follow-up to Rooney’s two critically acclaimed albums – ROONEY & CALLING THE WORLD – EUREKA sees the band not only showcasing their most inventive and original material to date, but also seeking innovative and self-motivated ways to develop in a new climate, playing a vital role in the future of the music industry.

Taking control of their music brings Rooney back to their roots. Formed in 1999, the band began self-producing and promoting EPs with endless shows on The Sunset Strip and along the way garnered a massive fan base in their hometown of Los Angeles and beyond. Among those fans was Geffen Records, who signed the band and released their first two albums.

Since the release of their debut self-titled album, Rooney’s irresistible songs have continually captivated fans and critics with what Spin, Details, Entertainment Weekly, Alternative Press, Nylon, The New York Times and Rolling Stone Magazine hail as “elaborate sunny vocal harmonies crowning anthems.” EUREKA continues to showcase the band’s knack for creating melodic hooks, reverberating guitars and heartfelt harmonies. From the playful rhythmic groove of lead single
I CAN’T GET ENOUGH to the timeless pop balladry of INTO THE BLUE, from the psychedelic sounds of STARS AND STRIPES to the blissful and breezy pop of I DON’T WANNA LOSE YOU, EUREKA not only succeeds with 12 impressive and infectious tracks, but spotlights the band’s gift to craft intelligent and stimulating rock songs.

Developed through years of non-stop touring with artists like Weezer, The Strokes, Travis and Granddaddy, and two highly praised records, Rooney’s irresistible collection of songs and fiercely loyal fan-base have impacted modern rock & alternative radio stations and infiltrated video outlets such as MTV, VH1, Fuse and MTV2.
