Eulogies was an American rock band based in Los Angeles, California. The final lineup consisted of Peter Walker on guitar and vocals, Drew Phillips on guitar, Chris Reynolds on drums, and Ashley Dzerigian on bass.[1]

Former Eulogies bass player Tim Hutton and Chris Reynolds originally began playing with Peter Walker under the aegis of his solo work. After touring the US extensively in 2006, the trio was reborn under the name Eulogies. Drew Phillips joined the band in 2008, while Garrett Deloian joined the band in January 2009 (replacing bassist Tim Hutton, who left Eulogies shortly after recording resumed for their second album). They are signed to Los Angeles indie label Dangerbird Records, through which they released their self-titled debut album on September 11, 2007. The album was co-produced by fellow Dangerbird labelmate Hrishikesh Hirway (The One A.M. Radio). Eulogies toured North America in support of that album in summer 2007 with Sea Wolf and in fall 2007 with Film School.

A second album, entitled Here Anonymous, was released on April 7, 2009,[2] and was preceded by the EP Tempted to Do Nothing on November 4, 2008. North American tour dates with The Dears and Middle Distance Runner followed in spring 2009.

Their third and final full-length album, Tear The Fences Down, was released on January 18, 2011[3] exclusively on digital and vinyl formats. The CD version was released in March 2011.
