Eulogies Announce West Coast and Australian Tour Dates

California pop outfit, Eulogies, go about their business much like their music: quietly, steadily, and effectively. But when all is said and done, you look at their body of work and it occurs to you that this is indeed a band to be reckoned with. They traversed the country more times this year than most Presidential candidates, had a song featured in an Oscar-nominated film (‘The Wrestler'), and released a critically acclaimed EP and full-length within months of each other.

No rest for the weary, though, as Eulogies have booked two tours this fall: one a West Coast stint with Land of Talk, and the other supporting Seabellies for seven dates all over Australia. Be sure to catch them live if you can, or if you're more of a ‘comfort of your own couch' kind of person, look for Eulogies' video for “Two Can Play” on rotation at MTVu. A movie-goer perhaps? “How To Be Alone” is set to appear in the upcoming film “Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.” The Aussies have already bought in: “Two Can Play” is already the #1 song played on Australia's biggest alt station, Triple J.

“Packed with crisp songwriting.” – Pitchfork

“Walker sounds, talks, and accentuates his thoughts just as sweetly and attentively as his lyrics, which shine like a fifth member on the new record.” – The Tripwire

“Eulogies latest disc [comes] galloping out of the gate with a sound so warm, fuzzy and enveloping you don't have time to put up your guard... Here Anonymous may not possess the sunny variety of many pop albums, but make no mistake that it is pop – albeit a gloriously damaged sort.” - Denver Post

“There is something so appealing about Eulogies' patient, understated songs, you'd be a fool to pass them by. Songs awash with emotion, recorded with care and so delicately simple they run the risk of being taken for granted... This is nice and sweet and just right.” - RCRDLBL

The band's stunning new album, Here Anonymous, is available now via Dangerbird Records.

Tempted to do Nothing EP also available now
