Matt has decided to leave Rooney to focus on becoming a doctor.
While we’re sad that he’s leaving, we wish him all the best :)

 

Thank for everything Matt.

Head on over to Rooney-band.com and read his letter.

This interview with Rooney reveals that Rooney’s new album will be called Eureka :) Kinda fitting if you ask me ;)
(in case you didn’t know, Eureka means something along the lines of “having found it”, it being what you’re looking for)

Interview:
Rooney Steps Back, Regroups For Future

 It’s been a busy time of transition for Rooney.

The Los Angeles rock quintet left its record company, Interscope, after it wound down touring for its 2008 sophomore album “Calling the World.” Then, it started working on a third album that frontman Robert Schwartzman says “wasn’t exactly the record we wanted to make,” so the group took “a step back” before starting over again in March.

That album, titled “Eureka,” was recently finished, and Schwartzman — the son of actress Talia Shire, brother of actor/musician Jason Schwartzman and nephew of filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola — says Rooney was ready to get out on the road after a long stretch of studio time.

“We’ve been working a lot, recording, and we feel like we haven’t been able to get out and play for our fans,” Schwartzman, 26, says. “We want to get new music out, but we also want to be able to play shows.

“It’s nice for people to get something new from us and come to the shows. It makes it more of an event for us and our fans.”

“Eureka” isn’t due out until next year and will most likely be released independently by the band. To tide fans over, Rooney has put together a four-song EP, “Wild One,” culled from those recording sessions and featuring songs that didn’t make the final cut — but that Schwartzman says are hardly castoffs.

“The record is really diverse, and it shows a lot of different sides to our band and what we can do,” explains Schwartzman, who’s had several acting roles and was a guest vocalist on Demi Lovato’s “Party.” “We recorded 20 or so songs and we kept going back and taking a break and listening to what we had, reapproaching the record with new material.

“As we looked at the big list of songs, some of them didn’t fit together, but they were still great songs. We didn’t want to throw them away, and we saw that we could make a great EP as a piece of work on its own and get people ready for the album, too. That way it won’t feel like such a long time between albums.”

HISTORY

Rumor has it, Ed Rooney, an avid adversary of the ironically titled band, Rooney, is on the hunt for the five men who form the rock group. Apparently, the high school principal has left his Shermer home in hopes of reaching Los Angeles by the end of the week. Rooney (the principal, not the band) has been known to destroy a good time, or try to anyway. The band has declined to comment. In related news, Ferris Bueller has won the lottery.

Meanwhile, a pack of friendly guys with loose sleeves and bell-bottoms relax by a swimming pool. Never has a band been so unquestionably dutiful to a hometown. Or a home state, for that matter. Before a sun-kissed throng of Marissa Cooper’s and Summer Roberts’, with the grizzly bear flag flapping in the bonfire breeze, these guys, together known as Rooney, let the whole world know just how much they love California.

And, boy, is John Hughes insulted.

A diehard for his own home state, Hughes worked hard to convert the nation’s adolescents, in the prime of their angst, to the ear-muffed joys of the Windy City through the innocently sensual bite of Molly Ringwald’s bottom lip. (A smart man, that Hughes.) But now he scoffs at the L.A. based group that does nothing but rob this already regressing generation of what is really out there, beyond the bleached blonde shores of Southern California, to a place where sixteenth birthdays are often forgotten, where beautiful women are technologically created, and where Buzz eats all the cheese pizza. The band neglects a little place called Illinois… all in the name of a legendary 80s character.

Uniting under the mustached title of ‘Ed Rooney’ in 1999, Robert Schwartzman, Louie Stephens, Taylor Locke, Ned Brower, and Matthew Winter quickly dropped the first name, opting for a more Ferrisian effect with plain old ‘Rooney’ (hence the lack of propriety in the absence of Ed and/or “Mr.”) As harsh-weathered fans of the classic 1986 hit Italic textFerris Bueller’s Day OffItalic text, the rebellious group identified themselves in salutatory ode to the man who, in essence, made Ferris Bueller’s day off the exhilarating ride that it was.

A surprise this was not to most followers. Schwartzman, the animated lead singer and former actor, is a multi-gifted descendent of The Royal Coppolas. Nephew of Vito Corleone’s written voice, son of the shy face behind “Yo, Adrian!”, cousin of the founder of Bill Murray’s translation, brother of Max freaking Fischer; one had to only assume that his next project would somehow correlate to his insane tie to cinematic brilliance. Robert, as well as his less-genetically-privileged bandmates, often express their fervent passion for The Arts in general; whether be it music, film, sketching, or literature.

However, Rooney has established their respectable foundation based on the fact that they adore Southern California, albeit amidst a plethora of high-pitched squeals and pigtails. Such a reputation has caused many skeptics, John Hughes included, to wonder “Why not ‘Wayne‘, ‘Hasselhoff’, ‘Schwarzenegger’?”

“Why,” asks Hughes, “must you sabotage my homeland, my craft, my Ed Rooney?”

They laugh in response, their growing hair blowing out the convertible windows on a drive down Pacific Coast Highway. “Because,” they say in harmonic unison, “we’re on the trip of our lives under a California sun, and he’s still trying to catch us.”

January 20, 2010
California-based rock band Rooney have decided to take matters into their own hands. After coming out with two albums on a major label, the band have decided to go independent for their next album, called “Wild Things.” Also taking the DIY approach is Adam Young, also known as Owl City. After writing and producing the hit “Fireflies,” Owl City is showing the music world that you can create your own success.

“Anyone studying music business?” asked Robert Schwartzman, lead singer of the band Rooney, to a packed club one cold Boston night in December. Several shouts from college students in the midst of finals responded in the affirmative. Schwartzman paused, smiling at the crowd before continuing on to say, “You should switch majors.”

While Schwartzman went on to take back his previous statement and call it a “new and exciting time in music,” his general sentiments are echoed by his band’s experience. Rooney, a five-piece group hailing from sunny California, signed a recording contract with Geffen Records in the early 2000s, but the band recently parted ways with the major label to venture out on their own again.

Ned Brower, drummer and backup singer for the band, shared his thoughts on the separation in an interview with The Eagle.

“It was cool for us being on a major for us while we did it, and Geffen provided us with a lot of opportunities and things but they also provided us with some setbacks, so I think we feel like we’re excited to kind of get back to where we started,” Brower said. “It’s kind of exciting to sink or swim by your own hand.”

While there is certainly risk involved in the move to independence, in some ways it is safer than staying on a label. Although Rooney began opening for groups similar to their own style, later years featured the band on tour with such acts as Kelly Clarkson and the Jonas Brothers.

“We really like headlining, then we can bring out bands that we like and play to our crowd,” Brower said of their touring history. “There was a couple funny tours on the last cycle and part of that was being on a major and having pressure … ‘take this tour and we’ll put out the record’ type stuff … we’re not going to do anymore tours of that nature.”

But once bands make the move to independence, they are required to take on the responsibilities of a record label, such as creating their own publicity.

“We had a Web site early on when that wasn’t really a thing bands necessarily did that much,” Brower said.

He said the new Web site (at the same address, rooney-band.com) is a product of a partnership with Miranda Harke, the longtime runner of Rooney fan site, mastedonia.com.

Harke, who said she jumped at the chance to help the band with the official Web site, has been a fan since early 2003. In addition to her site, she also heads up the Rooney Street Team, which she described in an Eagle interview as “grassroots” promotion.

“I feel like [independence is] a positive move for the band, especially with the way the music industry is headed,” Harke said. “The Internet is such a powerful marketing tool … you can do yourself what only the major labels used to be able to do.”

This is an especially crucial time for the band, as they are on the cusp of releasing their first full-length record without the help of a major label. With what she called a “strong online following,” Harke said she is confident in the band’s abilities to capture the attention of listeners.

“The next little while leading up to the album release will be all about fine-tuning the online presence and making it as strong as possible,” she said. “That will be the most important thing.”

Rooney is just one example of a growing trend in the music industry. As more and more bands are left unsigned, dropped or separated from the major labels, the success of independents begins to rise. And with programs like Autotune, the music label giants are able to pick the artists who fit the mold they’re looking for and make them sound however they want. Such technological advances also make it easier for bands like Rooney to make a record on their own. But while Rooney is on a quest for independence, newcomers are harnessing these tools, as well as the power of the Internet, in the hopes of landing a contract with a major record label.

A perfect example of the other side of this issue is Adam Young, better known to the masses as the popular pop/alternative band, Owl City. 

Young, who suffered from insomnia, took to making music in his parents’ basement late at night — an upstart story that has been paraded over the radio as his single, “Fireflies,” climbs the music charts.

In an interview with The Eagle, Young discussed his sudden fame and the Internet’s role in his discovery and success.

Signed to Universal Records in early 2009, Young could have never predicted the effect the Web would have on both his life and his music.

“I owe a lot of my success to the Internet and social networks like Myspace,” Young said. “I never expected Owl City to gain the success and attention it has, and I owe a great deal of it to Myspace and the word spreading online virally.”

For Young, everything is still new and shiny, and nothing is to be taken for granted on this wild ride. A self-described “shy guy from Minnesota,” he called the video shoot for “Fireflies” a “brand new experience.” When asked what he enjoys most about performing live, he simply replied, “I kind of love it all.”

Owl City, who will perform to a sold-out Ram’s Head Live on Jan. 29 and is returning to the D.C. area to play D.A.R. Constitution Hall on April 22, continues to utilize the Internet to build support.

Since face-to-face contact with fans is limited to meet and greets while on tour, Young tries “to stay as connected as possible with Myspace, Facebook, Twitter — all the social networking sites.”

“I think it’s a huge blessing to be able to connect with fans in such a progressive way,” he said. “Because … the Internet is the new … TV. Or radio. Or something sweet like that.”

At opposite ends of the music business spectrum in many ways, the difference between Rooney and Owl City can not only be seen, but also heard. 

Owl City’s “Ocean Eyes” utilizes all the tools that a computer can offer, creating ear-pleasing music filled with little beeps, vocal alterations and other unidentifiable sources. “Meteor Shower,” a song that Young said, “says a lot about who I am and what I believe in a few words,” unfortunately loses some of its beauty to such conventions.

Rooney, however, has taken all the bells and whistles of modern recording and the standards held by major record labels and tossed them aside, revealing a glimpse at the past while looking towards the future. Their EP, “Wild One,” is a taste at what their new album, to be released in early 2010, will sound like: a polished band loosening up, revealing harmonies and instrumental skill galore.

While Rooney and Owl City are just two bands out there right now, they each provide a glimpse into the future of music as a new year begins. The Internet allows bands to be more available to the world than ever before, but whether that leads to signing a record deal with a major label or building a following and going independent is hard to predict. One thing is certain: the music industry is changing rapidly. To keep up, key players on both the creative and the business sides of the industry will need to adapt to the new conditions or fall behind their peers.

Rooney goes ‘Wild’ (sort of)

Guitarist Taylor Locke wants to talk about his band’s new tour…not his famous exes

By Wade Tatangelo

Special to Metromix

Los Angeles pop-rockers Rooney built a song around a bouncy David Bowie beat and shot to stardom. Culled from the quintet’s 2007 album “Calling the World,” “When Did Your Heart Go Missing?” became an international hit. After a 15-month hiatus, Rooney is ready to tour in support of a fresh release. The band’s new self-released EP, “Wild One,” will be available exclusively to concertgoers.

Rooney is Robert Schwartzman (vocals/guitar), Taylor Locke (guitar/vocals), Ned Brower (drums/vocals), Matt Winter (bass) and Louie Stephens (keyboards). If the band is best-known for “When Did Your Heart Go Missing?”, Locke is best-known for his love life. First, there was a long-running relationship with the Donnas’ guitarist Donna R., aka Allison Robertson. More recently, his breakup with actress Mischa Barton, star of “The O.C.”, made headlines.

Locke called from his hometown of L.A. to talk about the rigors of touring, the band’s more rabid fans and, reluctantly, his famous exes.

Rooney hasn’t toured in quite a while, what has everybody in the band been up to?
It has been a pretty major year as a band and in our separate personal lives. Some people bought houses. Some people might have a child on way. We have had fun doing one-off shows and rehearsing and everyone is getting along real good.

What’s the best way to stay sane on the road?
I think it’s good to put yourself on a routine because no one else is going to impose one for you. I think it’s up to people to read or not read or exercise or not exercise or walk around and explore towns, or not walk around and explore towns.

What kind of post-show partying goes on?
Well, it’s different for everybody in the band. You do have to pace yourself because if someone gets sick on the bus or has a real bad hangover, it snowballs and then everyone is sick. I can’t speak for the whole band in terms of how much drinking we do. You know we have really young fans, so, what people want to do in terms of partying, is, ah, their own thing.

“When Did Your Heart Go Missing?” became a worldwide smash, played on rock radio and even dance clubs. While recording, were you consciously striving for a hit?
I think we knew it had potential to be a single. In terms of will it be a hit single or not, you never really know. When you’re in what’s considered a pop band, having a song that fits the criteria of a single is always a consideration—especially when you’re nearing the finish line of an album. Danceable rock songs are always kind of a winning combination.

What’s the wildest thing a female fan has done to get your attention?
Ah, man. Probably some online form of stalking. Getting my email address. Inundating my inbox with nude photos and messages. Tricking me into accepting them on Facebook and posting relentless things on my wall that embarrass me in front of people who are my actual friends.

That doesn’t sound very fun.
That’s in the virtual land. In real life, I don’t know. I had a girlfriend for a long time, for many years, for like the bulk of our touring so…I don’t know. There are always those fans who are a little over the edge, but you have to love them. God bless the Rooney fans. Even the crazy ones.

You mentioned your longtime girlfriend. Most men would be intimidated to even approach one of the Donnas. Were you at all nervous when you first made a move on Allison Robertson?
Um, well, I’ve never really discussed any of that type of thing publically. But I’ll say we were friends for a long time before anything romantic happened, so it was all very natural.

Are you and Allison still friends?
I’d rather not go into it. It’s not particularly relevant to the upcoming thing, if you don’t mind.

So, I guess you don’t have anything to say about Mischa Barton.
I’ll say both of my ex-girlfriends are real nice women, but my involvement with either one of them is not relevant to the upcoming Rooney tour and EP “Wild One.”

Note : I thought about removing the parts about Mischa and Allison, but seeing as it was part of the interview, I left the whole thing in. I would like to state that I feel like who the guys in Rooney date is a private matter, and as fans of ROONEY it’s none of our business - and I don’t like how the interviewer went about it.

Just wanted to wish you all a merry Christmas. Hope you’re spending it with your loved ones :o )

Rooney Drummer Pays Tribute to Fallen Mentor Carter Albrecht

By Darryl Smyers

Published on December 16, 2009 at 1:12pm

Ten years ago, Ned Brower was attending SMU when he formed a band called The Cosmetics with one Carter Albrecht. Now the drummer for the Los Angeles power pop band Rooney, Brower has recently paid tribute to his sadly deceased, Dallas-based mentor.

“The title track of our new EP is about Carter,” says Brower from a Rooney tour stop in Minneapolis. “He was both my musical mentor and a great friend of mine.”

The EP Brower speaks about is called Wild One, the third release from Rooney, a spunky quintet that has existed on the periphery of success for several years.

Often compared to bands such as The Cars, Jellyfish and Blur, Rooney (named after the principal in the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) parlays its craft at the shiny end of the power pop spectrum. Sweet little songs like “I’m Shakin’,” “I’m a Terrible Person” and “When Did Your Heart Go Missing” have found their way onto commercials and various nighttime dramas.

Yet even a high profile slot opening for the Jonas Brothers in 2008 hasn’t made Rooney a household name.

Brower is hoping this new EP can help the band reach a different level of popularity while at the same time let people know how much Albrecht meant to him.

“I truly feel that Carter was one of the greatest artists,” says Brower. “I wish more people would get to hear his music. If our record sends people his direction, that would be a great thing.”

Interestingly, the song “Wild One” is the only cut on the new EP written and sung by Brower. Seems the drummer (who handles backing vocal duties for Rooney) has been mulling over paying tribute to his mentor ever since he found out about Albrecht’s death while on tour in Europe a few days after the tragedy.

“We were in England and it was just devastating,” admits Brower. “Carter wrote me a really nice note about our record just a few days before he died, and he floored me with how kind he could be.”

The song “Wild One” is Brower’s reaction to Albrecht’s death, but there is nothing morose about the cut. Over a playful beat, Brower muses thoughtfully about the irony of seeing Albrecht’s name in the news as a result of his death instead of his talent. “You were the toast of the town, but you were already in the ground,” sings Brower, before asking, “Why’d you have to be the wild one?”

Brower says he still thinks about Albrecht every day and wishes his friend and mentor was around to hear what his college buddy has accomplished.

“Carter was a true genius,” says Brower. “Writing the song for him was one way that I could fight the sad reality that I wasn’t going to hear anymore of his music.”

Rooney grew up quickly. The Los Angeles band came together when its members were teens. A debut album followed a few years later, and then another recording. And now, with 10 years and two albums behind it, Rooney is striking out on its own.

“We’re still a young band,” drummer Ned Brower says, “but we started out really young. But we’re in a weird, cool place right now. I feel we’re only starting to approach our peak zone, and we already have all this experience.”

Not bad for a band who started with a frivolous name. Initially Robert Schwartzman and two now-departed members picked Ed Rooney as a handle, the name of the principal in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Those band members left, and Schwartzman began to assemble a new band of high school students.

“Early on we knew we needed to drop the Ed,” Brower says. “It started as a joke, but quickly we became not-a-joke band. There was a time we thought about changing it completely.”

Brower says KISS’ Gene Simmons had a lot of ideas.

“He told us Rooney wasn’t something you could touch or hold onto. He said, ‘Your band name should be a thing.’ He suggested Stuff. He said, ‘You can have that one for free on me.’ ”

Rooney did not become Stuff, and the band — Schwartzman, Brower, guitarist Taylor Locke, bassist Matthew Winter and keyboardist Louie Stephens — put out a self-titled debut full of punchy power pop in 2003.

A second album,Calling the World, came out two years ago. The band has been writing and recording much since then, which resulted in an EP called Wild One that Rooney is selling on tour. It’s part of an extended set of recordings that will also include a new album in the spring.

After just two records Rooney severed ties with its label, so the band can shop around the new recording.

“When we started the band we handled things on our own,” Brower says. “And even with the label we’ve always done a lot of the work. We just have a little more control over the content now. We’re excited to take back the responsibility for what we do. We wanted to be back in the trenches.”

The band benefits from having established a brand in its 10 years. A group that built a grass-roots following in Los Angeles now has a six-figure following across the country. They’ve been savvy about seizing opportunities like appearing on The O.C. years ago and taking an opening slot for the Jonas Brothers on a 2008 tour.

“We’ve played just about everywhere from little clubs to sold-out arenas,” Brower says. “We’ve had a pretty diverse touring thing going, which might be because we don’t fit in anywhere.”

Though rock and pop are often diced into subgenres, Rooney doesn’t lend itself to such. “Anyone who’s seen us live knows it’s just five guys with guitars and mics and (expletive) playing rock music,” Brower says. “We’ve always known what kind of music we want to make, hip pop stuff rooted in classic rock and pop.”

Which is what they’ll be doing at the Meridian on Friday. Some new material will find its way into the set as a bit of a teaser for a 2010 that will find the band touring tirelessly.

“This tour is about going out and playing for the core audience,” Brower says. “Next year is the big yearlong anniversary campaign.”

THE INSIDER: ROBERT SCHWARTZMAN

Is the Rooney front man the next Robert Palmer?

Like Clark Kent (or Hannah Montana, for that matter), the musician Robert Schwartzman leads a bit of a double life. 

For some, the California native is a singer and composer for Rooney, an indie rock band that surfs between the Beach Boys’ lithium chords and the Strokes’ fuck-it-all lyrics.  For others, he’s a teen heartthrob who kissed Anne Hathaway in The Princess Diaries, to the jealous groans of a million tenth grade girls.

Now the musician throws a wrench in his own identity crisis with a new mission called Solo Bob.  The project is a series of synth-rock songs and hallucinogenic videos, all circling a character that Robert says, “I used to pretend to be in my bedroom late at night.”

For fans of Mr. Schwartzman’s musical skills, that sounds like a welcome dive into experimental rock ‘n roll.  For the screaming, crying girls we witnessed at Rooney’s Webster Hall concert on Friday night, the simple phrase “in my bedroom” should be enough to hook them, too.

Robert / Bob / OMG-that-cute-guy phoned us from his tour bus in Cleveland Ohio to explain himself.

Good morning!  How’s your tour going?  We’ve all just woken up on our tour bus in Cleveland Ohio. It’s the Rooney tour.  It is gray outside, like, really gray, and um, I think we’re between some buildings.  Usually the bus parks in some random part of town, so we get a really good view of the backs of buildings, air vents, air conditioning.  It’s a new kind of tourism.

What’s different about this tour?  We’re playing our new EP songs! And we got out of our label, so there’s a new sense of freedom.  Being independent has given us a new sense of excitement, and why we’re doing this, and why we’re going to keep doing it.

On the NYLON tour, the Plastiscines’ food of choice was french fries.  What’s yours?  Cereal and rolled up turkey slices! Those can go a long way.  But this is our 8th year on the road, so we get fed by fans, too.  They’re always really good about bringing us cookies.

Do your fans know about Solo Bob?  Um, mostly my friends who call me Bob.  But I don’t refer to myself as Bob unless I’m blogging about Solo Bob, because I think supporting The Bob, it’s a separate thing.

The Bob?  Is that like your version of Sasha Fierce?  Maybe? To me, Bob is character, and it’s also a very specific energy… In high school, I made demos all the time and I’d say into the mic, “This recording was brought to you by Solo Bob!” Those songs always became Rooney songs, because I hadn’t found myself yet, and the music I wanted to make wasn’t just music, it was a character.  Then in 2007 I started to write songs that felt different than what should be in my band.

How will we meet Solo Bob?  In videos.  It’s my goal to have a video for every Solo Bob song.  I’m pulling in all these young directors and exciting people to work with me.  For example, my cousin Roman Coppola is a movie director, a video director, and a commercial director, and he’s always really liked the sound of this project, so we’ve started to collaborate.

Um, details?  Well, I love Robert Palmer, the way he carries himself in his videos, and the way the girls carry themselves, and the airbrushed record covers.  So I showed his videos to Roman, and then we used a green screen with a different outfit for every shot… It’s a visual project as much as it’s a musical project.

When can we buy a Solo Bob record?  Not sure yet, most likely after the Rooney album cycle is over – our new album comes out in Spring 2010! 

Your birthday is coming up – on Christmas Eve.  Does that suck?  Yeah it’s kinda hard – I mean, it’s not hard when you compare it to real things in this world, but I mean, nobody’s ever around for my birthday, and I like togetherness.  I like family time and friend time and I don’t get that on my birthday because it’s this big holiday and… yeah, wow, okay, I’m a little bitter.  But I bought a fake Christmas-slash-birthday tree!  I will go on the record right now, I have the greatest fake tree ever. Nice shape, nice build, comes apart easily.  It’s awesome.

I know, I know… I’ve been horrible at updating and I’m kinda out of excuses… But it is the busiest month at work and I’ve had a lot going on.

First of all…. No more soundcheck at the Rooney shows.
The band has run into some venue restrictions, and has been forced to cancel the open soundchecks.
They are however, still doing the meet & greet if you buy a Wild One EP :)

There’s a few new video diaries in case you’ve missed them :
