Back in February, ’90s alt-rockers Letters To Cleo announced that they were reuniting and teased some new music. And now, as Vanyaland reports, they’ve announced their first official release in 17 years, an as-yet untitled EP that will be available to pre-order via Pledge Music and is set to arrive 9/30. After that, the band will head out on a five-date reunion tour culminating in a hometown show at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club.
“It’s a blast,” says guitarist Greg McKenna of the reunion. “I mean, we spent our formative years learning how to do this stuff together. When it was done, we went out and lived our lives and now everyone’s bringing their experiences back to this at a new level of musicianship, but writing with these guys still feels effortless.” And according to drummer Stacy Jones, the new EP “feels completely unforced. It sounds like classic Cleo. But at the same time, there’s nothing nostalgic about it.”
