Here & Very Now: Letters To Cleo declare ‘current’ band status, promise new music


Earlier this month we were treated to reunion news from Belly. Now it seems Letters To Cleo are getting back in the game as well.

The Boston alt-rock band, which had a hit with 1993’s “Here & Now” and found a renewed fan interest via television show Parks & Recreation, appears to be reuniting.

Drummer Stacy Jones tweeted out the news late Wednesday afternoon, declaring Letters To Cleo a “current” band” and promising new tunes, as well.


“This is my old band Letters to Cleo,” Jones just tweeted, with the photo below. “It is also my current band. New music coming soon!”

The tweet was then re-tweeted by guitarist Michael Eisenstein and singer Kay Hanley, who then tweeted out a photo of Parks & Recreation character Ben Wyatt wearing a Letters To Cleo shirt.

Got all that? Good.


Letters To Cleo were active from 1990 to 2000, appearing in the 1999 Heath Ledger film 10 Things I Hate About You (which holds up remarkably well nearly 20 years later, we might add) and releasing three studio albums. They reunited in late 2007 when four original members played T.T. The Bear’s Place in Cambridge for a Jeanne Connolly benefit show, and played a handful of live dates in 2009. At last year’s Hot Stove Cool Music benefit at the Paradise in Boston, Hanley, Greg McKenna, Eisenstein, Polce and Joe Klompus performed “Here & Now” and other songs.
