Eels debut new video for ‘Rusty Pipes’

The song comes from the band’s latest album, The Deconstruction, which was released in April of this year.

The video is directed by Matthias Hoene. Hoene also designed the costume of the robot protagonist, and the entire video was shot over a tight two-day schedule. On the video, Hoene said: “When I first listened to the song, I really responded to the theme of being out of sync with your environment and the story almost wrote itself… The hard work was to structure the story to be perfectly in sync with the song, and get every storytelling beat right.”

Since 1996, Eels has released twelve studio albums. Mark Oliver Everett, also known by the stage name E, has released two solo albums: A Man Called E and Broken Toy Shop

Eels will play in Iveagh Gardens in Dublin on 6th July 2018 as a part of their world tour. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.

For E's A Jolly Good Fellow

Far from the miserable pessimist of lore, eels frontman Mark Everett, aka E, is in fact an upbeat, sanguine character with an engagingly wry sense of humour. He here talks to Paul Nolan about The Eels’ extraordinary new double album, Blinking Lights And Other Revelations, being inspired by Stanley Kubrick, collaborating with Tom Waits, why his dog couldn’t make it out on tour, and slapping Steve Jones’ backside.

Live At Vicar Street

Personal catastrophe invites two possible responses – surrender or quiet, dignified resistance. Eels, the American indie-pop band who flaunt their private traumas like couture fashion, have stumbled upon a third way. They’ve learned to laugh at the grisly comedy that is life. Not that you’d know it from their records, which are awash with avant-garde moroseness. Their most celebrated, 1998’s Electro Shock Blues, recalled the protracted death from cancer of the mother of singer and group leader, Mark Everett.

Hey Man (Now You're Really Living)

If you're feeling crestfallen at what appears to be an about-face from the boys upon whom you always depended for real selfish miserable laments, hold that thought. While occasionally the whinging minstrel on his platform in Whelan’s will persuade you that he honestly is fed up, it must be noted in the case of 'Hey Man' that it takes a really miserable bastard to sing a cheerful song about sitting on freshly cut grass and making love with beautiful girls to still make your immortal soul shiver.

Blinking Lights And Other Revelations

Sleepless nights with sick kids. Early morning flight. Hassles from airport security. A funeral. Not, you might think, the best preparations for sitting down to listen to an album. The thing is, though, Blinking Lights And Other Revelations is a record perfectly suited to a not entirely focused state of mind.
