For The Lovely Eggs being in a band is a way of life. It’s about art. It’s about creativity and expression. It’s about following your own path and doing things your own way. Holly and David operate on their own terms, spewing out music, records, art and television shows before piling in the van and tearing round the country to perform a load of live sold-out shows.
Their wild and wilful independence sets themselves apart from other bands and despite having no management, booking agent, record label or publisher their recent album I am Moron shot to Number One in the Official UK Independent Charts and they continue to sell out shows across the country.
I am Moron bears the fruit of their second collaboration with Grammy award winning producer Dave Fridmann, their first being This is Eggland which was released in February 2018 to critical acclaim. Their latest single release confusingly entitled I, Moron is a collaboration with Godfather of Punk Iggy Pop and swiped the number one slot in both the Official U.K. Physical and Vinyl charts upon release. Iggy Pop is a fan of the band and recently dedicated one of his BBC 6 Music shows to The Lovely Eggs’ work.
That is, nonetheless, quite enough about the past. The Lovely Eggs now have their sights firmly set on the future and have had their two heads buried deep in new music, art, ideas and saving the Lancaster Music Co-Op, to complete a new album that will arrive in May, more details of which will arrive at a later date. Before then, though, the band have announced a UK tour that will roar through the UK in May, the band’s first headline shows in two years. And they are raring to get out and play
Tickets will be available on pre-sale for members of the Eggs mailing list from 10am Thursday Nov 2nd and then go on general sale 10am Friday November 3rd. They perform at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on 26th May 2024.
Operating in a world where true authenticity is hard to find, The Lovely Eggs are one of the most exciting, innovative and genuine bands around. Welcome to their world. Welcome to Eggland.
