There’s the old saying that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. After years of the major label treatment, Rooney, those L.A. rascals with a something old, something new sound, are taking the release of their new EP into their own hands.
If you remember, the band first made it big with its self-titled debut album and the subsequent hit “I’m Shakin'”, which landed the boys a guest spot on The O.C. The band’s last album was 2007’s Calling the World.
Now comes the four-track Wild One, a release written and produced entirely by the band. The effort, which is said to feature some of the band’s “best, most inventive and original material to date,” will be available exclusively at the upcoming shows before becoming available at iTunes in early 2010. Only 5,000 EPs will be pressed.
Those aforementioned upcoming shows will kick off on November 27th in their hometown of Los Angeles and run through late December. Find all the necessary info below.
