Eels have always been a frank, open, emotional experience.
Yet new album 'The Cautionary Tales Of Mark Oliver Everett' takes this further than ever before. With lead singer E delving into his personal life, it matches pained, melancholic lyrics against a pastoral sweep.
'Lockdown Hurricane' was a highlight, featuring one of E's most sensitive vocal performances. Now the track has gained a full video, shot in the American desert.
Essentially a Bonnie and Clyde style love story, don't go expecting either the video (or indeed the album) to end happily...
Eels have confirmed the following UK shows:
17 Glasgow Royal Concert House
18 Cambridge Corn Exchange
19 Bexhill De La Warr Pavillion
30 London Royal Albert Hall
24 London Barbican
25 Bristol England Colston Hall
26 Gateshead Sage
