Eyelids announce tour with The Charlatans (2015)

Eyelids (members of Decemberists, Guided by Voices)  have confirmed U.S. tour dates with The Charlatans. The band also has a new, self-titled EP produced by Peter Buck.
Eyelids have a collective history creating music for some of the most legendary indie songwriters.  Longtime friends and principle songwriters John Moen (Decemberists) and Chris Slusarenko (Guided by Voices, Boston Spaceships) channel their teenage Paisley Underground obsession and love of New Zealand / Flying Nun guitar buzz into a sound they describe as “sweet melodies and bummer vibes.”
This November, they’ll be joining the Charlatans on their U.S. tour, a band Eyelids have always loved and admired.   “We’re looking forward to opening their soda cans for them and sweeping up all the sweat after they leave the stage for potential re-sale,” adds Chris.  “It’s going to be amazing!”
This summer, Eyelids released a self-titled EP this summer, produced by Peter Buck of R.E.M.  Eyelidsis available digitally and limited edition colored vinyl (Jealous Butcher / Schizophonic Records) with a download card featuring three exclusive live videos (including Stephen Malkmus performing “Hey Joe” w/ Eyelids).  The EP immediately follows sold-out pressings of three 7-inch and their full length album, 854.
