Rilo Kiley say new collection of unreleased material is 'almost finished'
Rilo Kiley have taken to their official Facebook page to tell fans that work on their new collection of unreleased material is "almost finished".

Despite announcing their split in 2011, the band have now said: "Record is almost finished, and artwork is nearly done. Going to need your help! More to come."

The quartet, who were fronted by Jenny Lewis, were thought to be on hiatus while Sennett recorded as part of The Elected and Lewis worked as part of Jenny and Jonny with her partner Jonathan Rice, but the guitarist said last year that they would not be reuniting.

Speaking to Spinner, Sennett explained the reasons for the split: "I just felt like there was a lot of deception, disloyalty, greed and things I don't really want to submit myself to. I had related that frustration to music but I just thought, 'I'm not going to put myself in that position again,' so I said, 'Fuck that, I can't do this anymore.'"

Rilo Kiley released five studio albums over their 13 year career, with the last, 'Under The Blacklight', in 2007.

Sennett said that he intended to release a compilation of the band's unreleased material, adding: "I think we're going to try and release a two-disc set of 40 songs, or something. I think that can be more considered like our last release, to me."
