Portland band Eyelids, who are led by The DecemberistsJohn Moen and former Guided by Voices member Chris Slusarenko, will release their fourth album, A Colossal Waste of Light, on March 10 via Jealous Butcher Records. Once again, REM's Peter Buck produced (and played on a few tracks), and this is their first album to feature new bassist Victor Krummenacher of Camper Van Beethoven, alongside guitarist Jonathan Drews and drummer Paulie Pulvirenti.

The first single from A Colossal Waste of Light is the jangly title track that comes with a video featuring stop-motion-animated lifesize paper mache models of the band. That video premieres in this post and you can watch below.

Eyelids will also be on tour with Honey Radar this year, including a Brooklyn show at Union Pool on March 17 that's also with Hallelujah the Hills. They've also got West Coast dates with Peter Buck, and you can check out their full tour schedule below.
