Following the first tour since the release of the album trilogy (HOMBRE LOBO, END TIMES, TOMORROW MORNING) in 2010, EELS surprise fans by launching a 2011 world tour. After a warm-up show in Santa Ana, CA June 1, the TREMENDOUS DYNAMITE IN 2011 tour officially starts with the first ever EELS performances in Beijing and Shanghai, China, June 5 & 6, then rolls through Europe, including their first appearance at the Glastonbury Festival, June 26 and onto North America, starting in Austin, TX, July 20 and ending in Los Angeles, CA, August 12. To celebrate the announcement of the tour EELS offer a free download of three tracks -- one from each of the EELS album trilogy: HOMBRE LOBO, END TIMES and TOMORROW MORNING.
There may be many things to come from Mark Oliver Everett and company in the future. Some of it may surprise you. Some of it may delight you. Some of it may sicken you. But know that they are having a wonderful time making things down in the basement.
