About this album

Return of the Rentals is the debut album by post-New Wave band The Rentals, released on October 24, 1995 through Maverick Records, a subsidiary of Reprise Records. The album features Matt Sharp - Weezer’s bassist at the time - on vocals and bass, as well as Weezer drummer Patrick Wilson. Other contributors include Tom Grimley (Moog, production), Petra Haden (violin, vocals), Rachel Haden (vocals), Guy Oseary (album artwork), and Stephen Marcussen (mastering), among others.

Return of the Rentals was well received by critics and produced the successful single “Friends of P.” which peaked at number 7 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Chart and received significant airplay on MTV’s 120 Minutes. Despite this, the album never charted.
