Eels' First Album in Four Years 'The Deconstruction' Out Today

"Here are 15 new EELS tracks that may or may not inspire, rock, or not rock you," frontman E (a.k.a. Mark Oliver Everett) says of the new album. "The world is going nuts. But if you look for it, there is still great beauty to be found. Sometimes you don't even have to look for it. Other times you have to try to make it yourself. And then there are times you have to tear something apart to find something beautiful inside. "
To celebrate the release, EELS will tour worldwide this summer, with a North American headline run kicking off May 28 in Pomona, CA and further shows in Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, New York, D.C. and more. See below for full tour details.
The album was performed by E and longtime collaborators Koool G Murder and P-Boo, alongside The Deconstruction Orchestra and Choir, and produced by E, with some songs produced by Mickey Petralia for the first time since 1998's Electro-Shock Blues.
EELS have had one of the most consistently acclaimed careers in music. The ever-changing project of principal singer/songwriter E (Mark Oliver Everett), EELS have released eleven studio albums since their 1996 debut, Beautiful Freak. In 2008, E published his highly acclaimed book Things the Grandchildren Should Know and starred in the award-winningParallel Worlds, Parallel Lives documentary about the search to understand his quantum physicist father, Hugh Everett III. EELS released their critically acclaimed The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett in 2014, and 2015 saw the release of the band's extraordinary seventh live album Live at Royal Albert Hall, recorded at the storied London venue and accompanied by a concert film. In the same year, the band's "Fresh Blood" served as the theme song to HBO's "The Jinx" and in 2016, 2017 and 2018 E appeared in Judd Apatow's Netflix original series "Love."
