Eels Reissue "Blinking Lights and Other Revelations"

Remastered, 140g, triple crystal violet vinyl, and with 32 pg. booklet


EELS confirm the limited-edition, remastered, vinyl reissue of their 2005 album, Blinking Lights and Other Revelations, set for release on May 19 via BMG. You can pre-save/pre-order here.



Of the reissue, band leader and principal songwriter Mark Oliver Everett—aka E—says:


“When it was time to master the Blinking Lights reissue, I needed to listen to the whole double album for the first time since it came out in 2005, and I was surprised by what I heard. It was an intense and emotional experience for me, and I felt proud of it and overwhelmed by how hard we worked on it. I’ll start mentally preparing to listen to it again when it’s reissued again in 10 years.”

First released in April 2005, Blinking Lights endures as one of the band’s most personal records since 1998’s Electro-Shock Blues, with songs about faith, responsibility, growing up, dignity, disappointment, comfort, hope and renewal. Despite being met with initially tepid reviews, the 33-track double album achieved some of the strongest critical acclaim of the band’s career and stands as a favorite among band members and fans alike, achieving cult status over the decades.

The latest reissue follows EELS’ recent limited edition vinyl reissues of their earlier trilogy, Hombre Lobo, End Times, and Tomorrow Morning, and their critically acclaimed 2022 record, Extreme Witchcraft, which found praise at The New York Times, Stereogum, SPIN, MOJO, NME and more.


EELS are currently on the road for the long-awaited Lockdown Hurricane tour of Europe and North America which kicked off in the UK last month.
