Story by Jack Foley

CONTINUING the celebration of the release of their latest album The Deconstruction, Eels will tour across Europe and the UK this summer.

The headline run kicks off August 14, 2019, in Switzerland before London’s Hammersmith Apollo on August 21, and dates in Southampton, Nottingham, Manchester and Glasgow.

In a statement made during the press conference held on the steps of Los Angeles City Hall earlier this week, Eels leader E said: “We did a shorter tour than usual this past summer, and they were the most fun, exciting shows ever. We need to bring the love and positive energy to some of the places we didn’t get to last time. We know you’re hurting. Help is on the way.”

The Deconstruction continues to garner widespread critical praise, including an in-depth interview with Terry Gross on NPR’s Fresh Air. Q Magazine declares the album “a captivating return from one of indie rock’s most consistent songwriters,” giving the album 4 stars.

Likewise, MOJO proclaims it “Gorgeous… another EELS album to treasure” in its 4 star review.
