UK Tour in October/November
UK Tour in October/November
The Lovely Eggs return with an explosive new single “I Shouldn’t Have Said That”,
They are also back on the road in October, bringing their raucous live shows to audiences throughout the UK. This will be their first full-length UK tour in more than a year, after being hauled up in the studio working on a new album with Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann.
Lurching, reeling and spitting with anger and regret, “I Shouldn’t Have Said That” perfectly encapsulates the kitchen-sink realism of a good old verbal brawl. Heavier that anything they’ve done before, the track is inspired by the motoric Krautrock of Neu!, with David’s drum beats laying the foundation for a blistering, in-your-face slice of punk rock attitude and Holly’s vocals a screaming drawl, with swirling synths and distorted guitar providing an intense psychedelic squall.
“I Shouldn’t Have Said That” was produced by legendary engineer Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev), flinging the resolutely DIY Eggs into a whole new world. The result is spectacular. Far more ambitious and raucous than their previous work, “I Shouldn’t Have Said That” is a blistering, searing, highly-charged punk rock number. Released on limited edition black and white 7” vinyl and accompanied by bespoke artwork by Turner-Prize nominated outsider artist David Shrigley, the single is backed by brand new exclusive B Side “Melody For Meathead”– yet another in-your-face rant, this time taking on the nationalistic Mail-reading meatheads of Great Britain.
Surreal punk rockers The Lovely Eggs are back on the road in October, bringing their raucous live shows to audiences throughout the UK. This will be their first full-length UK tour in more than a year, after being hauled up in the studio working on a new album with Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann.
The DIY duo, comprising of married couple Holly Ross (guitar/vocals) and David Blackwell (drums), have been selling out venues across the country without the help of management, booking agent or record label support. Described by the NME as “one of the country's most beloved underground bands”, the pair combine punk rock abandon with splatterings of psychedelia, carving out their own very peculiar niche and a growing army of fans.
With much support from Radio One and 6 Music, they have a staggering six BBC 6 music sessions under their belt with DJ Marc Riley declaring their last two singles "Goofin' Around (in Lancashire)" and "Drug Braggin'" among his official top tracks of 2015 and 2016.
Their songs are beloved anthems of absurdity, truly unique and set apart from the mainstream music industry. Live, singles such as the fuzzed-out psych of “Magic Onion” and “Goofin’ Around (In Lancashire)” (from their most recent album This Is Our Nowhere) sit alongside classics such as “Don’t Look At Me (I Don’t Like It)” and their philosophical mantra “Fuck It.”
This tour The Lovely Eggs will also be debuting new material from their forthcoming album due for release in early 2018. Titled This Is Eggland, the album was produced by legendary engineer Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev), flinging the resolutely DIY Eggs into a whole new world. The result is far more ambitious and raucous than their previous work. The first single from the album “I Shouldn’t Have Said That” will be released in November .
The Lovely Eggs' head out on tour this week for another round of sensational punk rock gigging, after playing a bunch of sold out dates across the country which included some of their biggest shows to date. The band return to Manchester (this time supporting The Damned) to play Academy 1, as well as heading to Brighton to bring the festivities to Egg's Xmas Party at Sticky Mike's Frog Bar, before finishing up their tour at The Musician in Leicester. As well as these new additional shows, The Lovely Eggs will play rescheudled dates in Bristol at The Exchange, and Southhampton at The Joiners.
