The band's new album Wonderful Glorious has been put online for your listening pleasure...
Ahead of the release of their new album Wonderful, Glorious on February 4, EELS are streaming the album in full.
EELS begin their world tour in February - hitting the UK in March.
Frontman of the ever changing musical outfit Mark Oliver Everett (AKA 'E') says recording the record at his studio in California was great for the writing process.
"It was exciting," he explained, "it filled me with hope for limitless possibilities. And I realized I'd had a similar feeling when I first put the band together for the last two tours."
The band features guitarists The Chet and P-Boo, bass player Koool G Murder and drummer Knuckles.

The band have also released the video for single Alphabet which E says tackles a serious issue.
"Adult male abuse is a widespread but little acknowledged problem in today's society. Many grown men are victims of children's senseless bullying. I have made the brave choice to speak up as a victim of these pint-sized terrorists. I am so tired of children picking on me. It is my hope that this video will serve as the first step in opening a dialogue between victims and community leaders that will one day lead to the end of this awful abuse."
