Mark E. Everett took his Eels on the road, a 53 date tour that began in Arizona in May, 2014. The tour took in many legendary venues and there were many memorable nights. The most prestigious and legendary, however, was London's Royal Albert Hall where they returned for the first time in 9 years to play a magical set. Luckily for all of you Eels fans out there, the show was recorded and is now available on 3LP, 2 CD and DVD formats.

We hired Mark Everett to work for us once, but he added horns to everything. You’d open a record and there’d be a trumpet; we’d be listening to the new Prurient album and he’d say something like “needs more oboe” (maybe that’s true, actually). There was always a grand piano in our dishwasher, "just in case". We should’ve seen it coming really, he did start referring to us as Royal Albert Records. What I’m trying to tell you is we’re his backing band now. We are Eels.
Mark always said the darndest things. When we asked him to take out the bins: “the bins of my past are the hopes of my future”. He didn’t take out the bins though. Sometimes you’d ask him a question and he’d respond with an instrumental overture, which was fine, but then he explained the thematics behind it: “this song symbolises that my best friend is a dog”, etc. It was a bit unnecessary, but very sweet.
He would often “refuse to play the hits”, but we didn’t really know what he was talking about. Let’s just say that while he was working at Royal Albert Norman Records, he made emphatic coffee, packed records like Frank Sinatra and baritoned our social media presence. I’ll always remember the many years he worked here, because he sent us the DVD. Thank you Mark.
