Rooney to Headline Venues in February
Thu, 02 Dec 2010 16:38:39
Rooney, who remain road warriors in support of their most recent release, Eureka, will not be slowing down their tour convoy, as they have announced a February headlining tour that sees them taking out Eisley and The Chapin Sisters (through 2/14) as support. The tour kicks off February 2 in Albuquerque, NM and wraps up in Salt Lake City on February 26. Go here to buy tickets. Good news! Each ticket purchase will be accompanied by a free, exclusive, digital only, Christmas EP of three cover songs: "Merry Christmas (War is Over)," "Last Christmas" and "Little Saint Nick."
A little refresher course on Eureka: the platter was produced and crafted entirely by the band and Eureka not only succeeds with 12 impressive and infectious tracks, but spotlights the band's gift to craft intelligent and stimulating rock songs that have continually captivated both fans and critics. Developed through years of non-stop touring with artists like Kings of Leon, Weezer, The Strokes, Travis, Polyphonic Spree and Granddaddy, and two highly praised records, Rooney's irresistible songs have impacted modern rock & alternative radio stations.
Oh, and vocalist/guitarist Robert Schwartzman is part of the Coppola acting/directing dynasty. He is the son of Talia Shire, who is the sister of director Francis Ford Coppola and he is the brother of actor and former Phantom Planet drummer Jason Schwartzman. His mom is Adrienne from Rocky!
