The New Left is an alternative rock band formed in the early 2000s (decade).
After releasing their third album, More Than You Think You Are, in 2002 and spending the next year touring the globe, the members of mainstream favorite Matchbox Twenty decided to take some time away and work on their separate musical projects.
The three met during high school in rural Indiana. Under the name Downpour the group played proms and parties, but parted ways once graduation came around.
Although Cook soon hooked up with his Matchbox Twenty band mates, the trio kept in touch and recorded demos during Cook's time off from touring. Adopting the new name 'The New Left', they solidified their lineup with the addition of guitarist and singer/songwriter Eamon Ryland.
Three years in the making, the group's first EP, Let Go, perfected at Cook's studio in Orlando, Fla., delivers six solid original, blues-tinged rock tracks.
Let Go (EP, 2004)
- "Dotted Line"
- "Wind Up Girl"
- "Tease Me"
- "Shoulda' Let Go"
- "Shiver" (iTunes Bonus Track)
