L.A. five-piece Rooney is gearing up to release a new, limited-pressing EP, Wild One, and will embark on a national headlining tour beginning November 27th at Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre, in support. Fans can get a first listen to Wild One as the EP will be available exclusively at these upcoming shows before becoming available at iTunes early 2010. Only 5,000 EPs will be pressed.
Wild One was produced and engineered by the band, and features four brand-new tracks. The EP was mixed by Dave Trumfio (Wilco, Built to Spill and My Morning Jacket) and mastered by Dave McNair (Willie Nelson, Patti Smith).
After signing with a major record label and working with some of the music industry’s most esteemed producers since their inception, the band is proud to showcase this collection of songs they crafted entirely themselves. Rooney’s latest offering features some of their best, most inventive and original material to date.

Hope your Halloween was fun. We’re writing to let you know we’re going on tour next month and need you’re help promoting the shows. We’ve heard people complain about not knowing about a show in their town so please help us spread the word. Coffee shop windows, indie record stores, college campus, etc. There’s always a good spot for a tour poster. Also, there are lots of ways to make noise online. We’re not hip to all the ways, but things are growing and changing so rapidly, the “DIY” approach is more effective than ever. We’re one of the few bands in this world that has a dedicated fan base/street team who take things to a new level. Most fans don’t want to go above and beyond and help a band they love. Thank you for helping and being apart of our bands future. We recognize the work you do for us and appreciate the time you invest. Hopefully, our band will continue to grow and appeal to newer fans and recruit new street team members. Please come and say hello at the shows; it’s nice to connect with you face to face.
If you are not already a member of the Rooney Street Team, please join to stay updated.
