Letters To Cleo emerged from the Boston college rock scene in the early 1990s, releasing two independent recordings, the Sister EP in 1991 and Aurora Gory Alice in 1993. The band signed with major label Giant Records, who re-released Aurora Gory Alice in 1994 as the band enjoyed their first Billboard Hot 100 hit "Here & Now." Sophomore album Wholesale Meats and Fish was released in 1995, featuring another hit single, "Awake." The band's third and final LP was Go, released in 1997 by Giant subsidiary Revolution Records, followed by a reissue Sister with new bonus tracks in 1998. Along the way, Letters To Cleo performed songs that were featured on the soundtracks to successful films The Craft and Jawbreaker, as well as 10 Things I Hate About You, in which the band appears on-screen performing their covers of Nick Lowe's "Cruel To Be Kind" and Cheap Trick's "I Want You To Want Me."
After working hard throughout the rest of the decade, the band felt it had run its course and officially announced their breakup in June of 2000. Still remaining close friends, the band members decided to reunite in 2008 for a short run of shows but it was not until the end of 2015 that the decision to work on new material began. Fall 2016 will see the release of a 5-song EP of all new material and a short tour to follow.
