The Lovely Eggs   Announce the single "Big Sea" Due out on surf blue 7" vinyl on 18 May

New album This Is Eggland out now   On Tour in May with support from Mr Ben & The Bens and comedian & poet Rob Auton

With the country in the grip of Egg Mania surreal DIY punk rockers The Lovely Eggs return with their latest single “Big Sea” released on 7” surf blue vinyl and will take to the road in May for another bout of UK tour dates. Taken from their newly released and critically acclaimed album This is Eggland ,“Big Sea” explores the mysteries of the universe and is a rallying anthem to everyone who wants to live life different.

 
“It's a pretty deep song really,” said Holly, “It questions the ridiculousness of human ritualistic behaviour and tries to look at what life is all about, the universe and stuff, and the mystery that weaves its way through everything.”
 
Since its release in February This is Eggland has won high praise from critics and fans alike. The Independent's 4*review described it as “a giant leap forward” with The Guardian describing their single “Wiggy Giggy” as “marvellous.” 
 
Produced and mixed by Grammy award winning producer Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, Tame Impala) and self released on their own label Egg Records, This is Eggland confounded expectations, hitting number nine in the UK Independent National Album Chart, it also made it to number 23 in the UK Vinyl Charts and overall number 136 in the UK National Album Chart - although, had they towed the industry line and not sold the album direct to fans via their website and gigs before release day, they would have been in the top 45! Their single "Wiggy Giggy" was number eight in the Official Vinyl Singles Chart, again despite most sales coming from gigs and their own website. The album CD had to be repressed twice and the vinyl once in the first week alone. As industry outsiders, all this was achieved without the help of management, booking agent or record label support.
 
The Lovely Eggs are one of the most unique, innovative and genuine bands on the British Underground music scene. Holly Ross (guitar/vocals) and David Blackwell (drums) have built up a cult following, selling out gigs across the UK, as well as gaining support from BBC 6 Music and Radio One. Heavier and more in-your-face than anything they’ve done previously, This is Eggland brings together a fierce DIY ethos, surreal sense of humour and kitchen-sink realism, creating an explosive blend of motoric krautrock, 60s psychedelia and punk rock attitude.
 
The album received a tremendous response from radio. It was declared “Album of the Day” by BBC Radio 6 Music who also added their single "Wiggy Giggy" to the BBC 6 Music playlist. Steve Lamacq stated, “I can’t get enough of this record at the moment,” and made it the "Lamacq livener" (where it has been played every day for a week). It went on to win Roundtable and was the most popular track on both Steve Lamacq and Marc Riley's show on consecutive weeks. The pair played their seventh live session for Marc Riley in February before heading out on a sold out tour of the UK, with 9 out of 10 dates sold out in advance.
 
In April the band will release a special edition of This Is Eggland on giant fried egg vinyl especially for Record Store Day on 21 April. Limited to an eye watering 500 copies, the LP will appear in a special hand packed sleeve, designed by the band with the giant fried egg in its own polythene display sleeve with a uniquely designed cardboard top. This is a true gem for any collector. They will also make an appearance at Rough Trade Nottingham for a special in-store live performance on Record Store Day itself.
 
To coincide with the release of their new single “Big Sea”, the eggs will take to the road for a string of UK tour dates in May and June, this time with their pals Mr Ben and the Bens (a firm favourite of Marc Riley) and poet and comedian Rob Auton, before a summer-full of festivals and their biggest headline gig to date at The Scala in London on 28 October.

Announce May Tour

New album This Is Eggland out on 23 February

Currently in the middle of their sold-out UK tour supported by Phill Jupitus as Porky The Poet and Mr Ben and The Bens, The Lovely Eggs reveal the mind-melting new video for their new single "Wiggy Giggy", which is due out on 7" on Friday 16 February, from the album This Is Eggland, out on 23 February on their own Egg Records. The video was premiered by Far Out, who said; "At first glance, it’s a glam-tinged, glitchy trip in to indie-outer-space. But digging a little deeper the song holds a strong sentiment."

 
With the country in the grip of Eggs-mania, they have also announced another extensive UK tour for May, as well as festivals including Festival No. 6, Long Division, Glastonwick and an all-dayer at the Ritz in Manchester with The Membranes. Last week they also announced their biggest gig to date at London's Scala on 28 October (see full list of live date below).
 
Created and directed themselves out of plasticine and psychedelic visual effects, the video perfectly encapsulates the cosmic odyssey of the song, where “normal” life and always “striving for more” meets something more magical! Where the grass is not always greener whatever side you look from. As guitarist/vocalist Holly Ross explains: "It is inspired by a book we used to read to our son, about a spaceman who went off exploring other planets but every planet he went to, there was something inhospitable or wrong with it and when he landed back on planet Earth he realised that after all his cosmic travels that earth was the best place for him to live. It was pretty deep and we really identified with it. We feel the same about Lancaster where we live. It might be a shithole, but it's OUR shithole and we love it. Not much goes on up here and there's not much to do so it's kind of like living in space. But we like being cosmonauts!"
 
The single is already receiving a tremendous response from radio and has been added to the BBC 6 Musicplaylist. Steve Lamacq stated, “I can’t get enough of this record at the moment,” and made it the "Lamacq livener" (where it has been played every day for a week). It went on to win Roundtable and was the most popular track on both Steve Lamacq and Marc Riley's show on consecutive weeks. The pair played their seventh live session for Marc Riley on Tuesday 6 February.

Hot on the heels of their rammed and raucous Autumn tour, Northern psychedelic punks The Lovely Eggs announce their next series of live dates for February ahead of their forthcoming album This Is Eggland (out 23 February on Egg Records). The Lovely Eggs are one of the most unique, innovative and genuine bands on the British Underground music scene. Setting themselves apart from the mainstream, they've built up a cult following which is due to blow wide open with their mild-melting new album,produced by  Flaming Lips/ Mercury Rev producer, Dave Fridmann. You can sample what's in store with their brand new single, "I Shouldn't Have Said That", which is out now. They will be supported by comedian Phill Jupitus (in his guise as Porky the Poet) on all dates.
 
This Is Eggland is heavier and more in-your-face than anything they’ve done previously. Married couple Holly Ross (guitar/vocals) and David Blackwell (drums) bring together a fierce DIY ethos, surreal sense of humour and kitchen-sink realism. Dave Fridmann lends his magic dust to bring out the best of The Lovely Eggs’ explosive blend of motoric krautrock, 60s psychedelia and punk rock attitude, all flipped over and egged up.
 
The album title This is Eggland is a cheeky nod to Shane Meadows’ series, This Is England. It is a  comment on the current state of the country, with The Lovely Eggs encouraging people to build their own worlds and create their own reality in these troubled times.The album is about being an outsider and doing things differently, eschewing society’s conventions as they have done.

Northern psychedelic punks The Lovely Eggs are delighted to announce their mind-melting new album: This Is Eggland. Heavier and more in-your-face than anything they’ve done previously, married couple Holly Ross (guitar/vocals) and David Blackwell (drums) are a force of nature, bringing together a fierce DIY ethos, surreal sense of humour and kitchen-sink realism. Working with a producer for the very first time, Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, The Flaming Lips) lends his magic dust to bring out the best of The Lovely Eggs’ explosive blend of motoric krautrock, 60s psychedelia and punk rock attitude, all flipped over and egged up. The band will be previewing some of the new tracks, as well as seasoned favourites, during their UK tour, which kicks off this Thursday in Wakefield..

THE LOVELY EGGS

JOYOUS DIY DUO TOUR NEW MATERIAL

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 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 and will be available for preview soon.

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 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.
