-Following the release of The Woolen Men’s self-titled LP on Woodist Records and Eyelids “Seagulls Into Submission” 7” on Off Records these bands bring their loose and frenetic approach to the proceedings.  The Woolen Men scrape Mark E. Smith over the head with their version of The Fall’s “Psycho Mafia” while Eyelids lovingly churn the insides out of The Clean’s classic “Anything Could Happen.”   Comes with very special packaging:  a clear blue double sided flexi in a hand stamped and numbered box with particles of information, show fliers and a download card with 2 additional unreleased songs from the bands made exclusively for this release.    Only 250 copies will be available…when they are gone…they are gone.

“Will give fans of the kind of stripped-down and live-sounding rock Dead Moon and the Wipers cranked out plenty of warm and nostalgic feelings.”  ALL MUSIC GUIDE

“It’s hard not to dive in as they play in the dirt.” CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

Eyelids:

“Eyelids delivered a sterling, full-volume set of guitar-spangled power pop, and their debut 7-inch contains more of the same.” PORTLAND MERCURY

“Although the full-length is still in production, their debut single, “Seagulls Into Submission,” showcases that aforementioned levitating quality, with sparkling guitars and aching harmonies that have already earned the band comparisons to power-pop touchstones like Big Star and Teenage Fanclub.” WILLAMETTE WEEK

TWO NICE UNS....

As we gear up for some nice news on Monday (and hopefully some post record release show glow from Saturday) here are some thoughts on our debut 7" from some music sites:

---We got their number over at The Fire Note--they love the new single and then some!

---Nice shout of enthusiasm about Seagulls Into Submission along with a live cut when we played a daytime show (fun but lunch anyone?)

IT'S OFFICIAL--TODAY'S THE DAY!!!

Thanks to everyone who pre-ordered our debut single "Seagulls Into Submission"!  We hope you're liking what music was on it, how it looks, the nice folds on the back, the color of the vinyl, the extra bonus live track and how it smells.  There are a few physical copies left (only 500 were made) and it's the only way to get the bonus live track, but if you'd rather just download the basic goods you can also now get them from iTunes, Bandcamp or even this lovely website as digital downloads.  There's some crazy stuff coming up that we can't wait to share too!

Thanks again,

The Gentlemen of Eyelids
