Eels are set to trail new album 'Wonderful, Glorious' with a series of British tour dates in March.
Eels seem to swing between two poles: black as night material with a sardonic sense of humour, and light, life affirming material with a sardonic sense of humour. Judging by the title of their new album, 'Wonderful, Glorious' could well signal E's return to sparkling optimism.
Due for release on February 4th, 'Wonderful, Glorious' is set to be accompanied by a lengthy period of touring. Eels are set to hit the road, with E set to be joined by guitarists The Chet and P-Boo, bass player Honest Al and drummer Knuckles.
Opening in Dublin on March 15th, the shows hit the mainland with a Manchester date on March 17th. Hitting Glasgow, Eels are then set to play shows in Leeds, Bournemouth, Brighton and more. Hitting London on March 21st, the band will play historic rock stop off point Brixton Academy.
Ending in Birmingham on March 30th, tickets for all shows go on sale at 9am this Friday (November 30th). Fancy a preview of 'Wonderful, Glorious'? Album cut 'Peach Blossom' arrived online earlier this month - listen HERE.
