Sorry Folks, No Image Is Here.

Letters to Cleo will be reuniting this fall with original members Kay Hanley (vocals), Michael Eisenstein (guitar), Stacy Jones (drums), and Greg McKenna (guitar). They will be releasing new music for the first time in 17 years! The EP will contain 5 tracks and it’s available for pre-order in multiple formats through Pledge Music. The EP will be released worldwide on all major digital services on September 30th. The band will be playing selective shows including a stop at Bowery Ballroom in NYC on November 17th.

For the band, staying true to the chemistry that defined their sound throughout the 90’s was key to the creation of this new record. “It’s a blast,” says McKenna. “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.”

The songs are instantly recognizable Letters to Cleo concoctions that fans will devour. “It feels completely unforced. It sounds like classic Cleo. But at the same time, there’s nothing nostalgic about it,” says Jones. From Eisenstein’s fierce, angular guitars locking horns with Jones’ roaring locomotive rhythm on “Hitch A Ride” to McKenna and Hanley’s signature melodic ESP on “Good Right Here,” the Cleo bandmates are in prizefighter form.
