Welcome to Rated O, the triple album and second installment of Oneida’s much-anticipated Thank Your Parents triptych of releases. In August of 2008, Oneida released the first installment, Preteen Weaponry, and now, Rated O, the centerpiece of the Thank Your Parents trilogy, has been bestowed upon us. Rated O will be released on Jagjaguwar on July 7th, 2009 (July 13th in the UK).
Today we are not only proud to announce this triple album, but also to share a new podcast in which members of Oneida provide commentary, insight, and explanations into the inner-workings of the O. This podcast, produced by Alex Goldman, contains three songs, “What’s Up, Jackal?”, “I Will Haunt You”, and “Saturday”. We know Jagjaguwar hasn’t updated ye olde podcaste in a while, but we are making up for it!!! Discover why Rated O is like drinking a 50 gallon drum of molé sauce, how you can figure out when something is “rated O” (hint: you only realize something is “rated O” until “way later”), and under what circumstances Showtime (Shahin Motia of Ex-Models) joined the band.

A Rated O sampler that contains those songs (minus commentary) is now available for free via Emusic and for purchase on Itunes.
