Eels Give Away Free EP Celebrating Deluxe Vinyl Release
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate the release of the EELS' acclaimed BLINKING LIGHTS AND OTHER REVELATIONS 4 LP deluxe vinyl limited edition the band is giving away a 4 song EP download for one week. The deluxe BLINKING LIGHTS package includes 3 LPs of the critically acclaimed album on vinyl for the first time with a fourth disc that is an exclusive 17 track live album, MANCHESTER 2005, recorded shortly after the release of BLINKING LIGHTS. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl, the 4 LPs each have their own covers, rice paper dust sleeves, and are accompanied by a hardback book of lyrics and photos, all housed in a beautifully crafted box that is numbered and begrudgingly signed by the author himself, EELS leader E. The edition is limited to only 2,500 copies and will be sold in order of lowest cover numbers first, 0001 - 2500. And this is not a fake signature like the ones often found on eBay.
The free EP contains 4 songs from the exclusive MANCHESTER 2005 album, which is only available on vinyl as part of the BLINKING LIGHTS deluxe edition, but you can download the EP regardless of ordering the BLINKING LIGHTS deluxe edition. Anyone who wants the EP can have it! Simply enter a valid email address and follow the link from the email for easy download. The MP3s will play on any iPod, MP3 player or computer. The live album is only available on vinyl as part of this limited edition. It will not be released in any other formats.
PARALLEL WORLDS, PARALLEL LIVES, the award-winning documentary film about EELS leader Mark Oliver Everett and his quantum physicist father, Hugh Everett III, aired last night (Tues, Oct. 21st) on PBS.
Mark Oliver Everett's highly acclaimed new book THINGS THE GRANDCHILDREN SHOULD KNOW was published Tuesday and is in stores now.
