Eels return to Sage Gateshead to celebrate new album release

Posted on 14 April 2014

Eels will take to the stage at Sage Gateshead on 26 July as part of a North American and European tour to celebrate the release of the new album ‘The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett’. The full-length release by creative singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and Eels frontman, Californian Mark Oliver Everett, is being described as “an extraordinarily vivid and intimate document of personal struggle.”

The album, released on 21 April, is available for pre-order in a deluxe 26 track 2 CD edition and a double 12 inch clear vinyl edition (with 13 bonus tracks on vinyl as well); both editions include a free download.

‘The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett’ marks the 11th full-length release for Eels, whose debut ‘Beautiful Freak’ was released in 1996. Q Magazine hailed Eels as: “One of the most prolific, adventurous and moving songwriters of the past decade.”

In addition to the recordings, Everett has embarked on a number of non-musical projects as well including his acclaimed book ‘Things the Grandchildren Should Know’ and the multiple-award winning ‘Parallel Worlds, Parallel Live’s’ documentary film about Everett and his quantum physicist father, Hugh Everett III, broadcast on the BBC.

The unmissable line-up includes accomplished blues musician and Hollywood action hero Steven Seagal, a remarkable double bill featuring soul legends Booker T. Jones and Bettye Lavette and The Jayhawks plus lots lots more.

Tickets for SummerTyne are on sale now and tickets for Eels are on sale from 10am Thursday 17th April.
