SOLD! The Rentals Return With New EP, Spaceland Residency + VIDEO

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
Nobody seems to be more surprised that the Rentals are returning than the Rentals themselves. They're writing their third album in Los Angeles right now and planning a residency at Spaceland in July before going on a long set of shows. They're also going to release an EP soon.

Titled The Last Little Life E.P, the new release will be short and include songs like Last Romantic Day, Little Bit Of You In Everything and Life Without A Brain. It comes out on Boompa Records on August 14th. After that, they'll release a longer full-length album, the follow up to 1999's Seven More Minutes. The new album is due sometime in 2008.

“Coming off the overwhelming excitement of the last tour our group was filled with so many new songs and creative energy that we soon realized it may take a little while to bring it all together into a cohesive album, so, that’s when we decided to release some of our first home recordings and share a few of these ideas with everyone“ says The Rentals frontman Matt Sharp.

The tour starts with a few warm up gigs in June before their month-long residency at LA's Spaceland. Then they'll play shows with Copeland and Goldenboy as they roam the country.
