The Lovely Eggs

 Reveal brand new single “I Shouldn’t Have Said That” Due out via Egg Records on 3 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.

THE LOVELY EGGS

ANNOUNCE OCT/NOV 2017 UK TOUR

 

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 are back again with another f**cked up, fuzzed out freak out with their brand new single “Drug Braggin’”. Released on eye-watering psychedelic swirl vinyl on their own label Egg Records, the limited edition 7” sludge pop mind-melter sees the pair (Holly Ross and David Blackwell) take on their latest pet hate: drug posers.
 
Sick of hearing people crowing about how many drugs they've done on a night out or at a festival, The Lovely Eggs retort with a big fuck-you to the pricks with a typically surreal insight in to their crazy world.
 
The B-Side “On the Line” is another new song, which was recorded with an electronic voice unit with a strange disembodied American accent after Holly was diagnosed with a vocal nodule. This brand new material represents yet another twist and turn in The Lovely Eggs' musical odyssey, cementing their reputation as one of the most exciting, innovative and genuine bands on the UK underground scene.
 
In keeping with their other recent releases, “Drug Braggin’” is accompanied by artwork and video by cult underground artist and baboon keeper Casey Raymond. The artwork has been created so that it seems never ending as it is joined at every corner in a self repeating pattern, keeping the viewer trapped inside The Lovely Eggs self contained world. It shows Holly and David having a mental meltdown as a result of too much exposure to drug braggin’.
 
The Lovely Eggs hit the road again this October/November for a 13-date tour of the UK calling at; Newcastle, Halifax, Hull, Northampton, Oxford, Reading, London, Southampton, Bristol, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow as well as Manchester's Gorilla – to play their biggest headline gig to date.
 
Lancaster’s The Lovely Eggs have been selling out venues across the country without the help of management, booking agent or record label support. This year they celebrated their 10th anniversary as a band by reissuing their first three albums If You Were FruitCob Dominos and Wildlife on limited edition coloured vinyl. Last year saw them release their critically acclaimed self-produced and self-recorded album This is Our Nowhere: a title which sums up their celebration and love of a scene which doesn’t exist in the eyes of the manufactured mainstream. Ironically the record received 8/10 in the NME (who declared that they were; “One of the country's most beloved underground bands”, and had much support from BBC 6 Music.
 
Following on from the fuzzed-out psych tones of the singles “Magic Onion” and “Goofin’ Around (In Lancashire)”, “Drug Braggin’” is yet another raucous punked-up psych trip of nonsensical perfection set in the humdrum of everyday life.  For Holly and David being in a band is a way of life. Laughing in the face of life’s absurdities and revelling in the mundane, The Lovely Eggs turn normality on its head, squeezing it through their peculiar surreal mincing machine and blending it with fuzzed out guitar and crashing drums.
