The Rentals

Profile:
The Rentals is the new wave-influenced project of singer/songwriter Matt Sharp, former bassist for '90s power pop favorites Weezer. During the spring of 1994, Sharp mounted the first Rentals studio session, assembling a roster including Weezer drummer Pat Wilson, that dog. violinist Petra Haden, vocalist/keyboardist Cherielynn Westrich and guitarist Rod Cervera. Subsequent recording dates in the studio yielded the group's 1995 debut album "Return Of The Rentals", achieving a minor alternative hit with the infectious lead single, "Friends of P.". Sharp returned to Weezer to record the band's acclaimed 1996 follow up, "Pinkerton", but announced his exit from that group's lineup in February, 1998. The second Rentals album, "Seven More Minutes", followed a year later. After an extended hiatus, The Rentals returned with "The Last Little Life EP" in 2007. Their third studio album, "Lost In Alphaville", appeared in 2014, featuring an entirely new group lineup.
