Matt Sharp's band The Rentals, whose line-up these days includes Lucius' Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig as well as Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, will release their long-awaited (15 years) new album, Lost in Alphaville, on August 26. They've just released a second track from the album, "1000 Seasons," which is an ode to making a connection in today's hyper-connected world. Stream it below. Still no tour dates announced

Meanwhile, Matt's old band, Weezer, also released the studio version of riff-rocker "Back to the Shack," which is the first single for their new album, from their new album, Everything Will Be All Right in the End. Stream that below too.

Is the new rentals album really long awaited? The second one was pretty forgettable, I don't remember my opinion on it to be honest, the first is good though

Good lord, that Weezer song is atrocious.

So sad and embarrassing to witness 40somethings trying to keep it going.

It is long-awaited, and their second album is actually very good. Maybe you should give it a complete listen

Wow so much hate for no reason. Hearing these songs make me look forward to two really good late summer releases. I prefer The Rentals song over Weezer, but still going to give it a try and hope for the best.

Hate for no reason? The hate is for the songs. Which are bad.
