This is a thrill to announce…while we were finishing up our East Coast tour and final touches on our next proper Eyelids LP (The Accidental Falls) we did one of our dream projects! Jay Gonzalez (of Drive-By Truckers) and Eyelids wrote songs with each other in mind to record and interpret and it came out really cool. It will be a limited edition 7” available for pre-order by clicking HERE !!!

The gist is below and we can’t wait to do it up with ya!
Come celebrate with Portland's Eyelids & Athens GA's Jay Gonzalez (of Drive-By Truckers) as they celebrate the release of their split 7" together! After they finished their East Coast tour together they decided to write (and dare) songs for each other to record. So Jay wrote "Warning Light" for Eyelids to arrange and record & Eyelids wrote "Rare Halo" for Jay to do the same. It's the perfect blend of all their lop-sided, heart felt rock coming together from all sides. And speaking of together--they all recorded a bonus track of Camper Van Beethoven's "Oh No" from their first record, Telephone Free Landslide Victory. But "Oh Yeah" they got Scott McCaughey (Minus 5, Young Fresh Fellows) to sing lead on it. A nice meeting of '85 headspace indeed.
And if that wasn't enough for aligning the stars tonight: Jonathan Segel and Victor Krummenacher of that same legendary band above (Camper Van Beethoven & Monks of Doom) will be performing a rare set of their music as a duo. Their influence on everyone playing tonight (and likely you showing up as well) are massive and they promise to bring their uniquely surprising, endearing and singular vision of left turned music.
This will be a crazy one of a kind night that should leave some impressions, indentations and well deserved joy. Come out for this one time affair and do it up!
