Following the announcement of their highly anticipated new album ‘Wonderful, Glorious’ - out on 4th February through E Works/Vagrant Records - EELS release details of an extensive March UK & Ireland tour including two dates at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin on Friday 15th & Saturday 16th March 2013.
Mark Oliver Everett and his band, guitarists The Chet and P-Boo, bass player Honest Al and drummer Knuckles, will kick off proceedings at The Limelight in Belfast on 14th March before taking in Dublin, Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Bournemouth, Brighton, Norwich, Nottingham and Bristol, finishing up at Birmingham Academy on 30th March.
It will be the band’s first UK tour since their critically acclaimed 2011 shows which included a Glastonbury set heralded by many as one of the performances of the festival. The Telegraph called the appearance "a witty, energetic and musically stunning set" in their list of top 10 highlights, while The Independent says it was "a soulful, funny, crowd-winning show" in their list of top 5 highlights.
New album ‘Wonderful, Glorious’, recorded in Everett’s new Los Feliz, CA studio dubbed “The Compound”, is his first album since 2010’s ‘Tomorrow Morning’ - the final part of a trilogy of albums including ‘End Times’ and ‘Hombre Lobo’.
Listen to ‘Peach Blossom’, the first track revealed from Wonderful,Glorious’, here.
