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 UK 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 this month. 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.

“We’ve pretty much spent the last two years fighting to save Lancaster Music Co-op which is a community rehearsal rooms and recording studio where we live, so we’ve put a lot of headline shows on the back burner because we were spending most of our time wrangling with Lancaster City Council over a long-term lease,” explains Holly. “We also had an idiotic idea to make a 6-part TV show with artist Casey Raymond, so add that into the mix and we’ve kept ourselves pretty busy. Eggs TV is now complete and out there in the world, plus we’ve finally got a lease and long-term security for Lancaster Music Co-op, so we feel we can go on tour to celebrate, knowing that other musicians and bands in the area now have a positive future.”

“It is going to be frigging joyous to reunite with all our Eggheads across the UK and just have a big party each show,” continues Holly. “We’ve missed it! People know by now what to expect from us and we plan to bring it back with full force next May. Expect egg-shaped mayhem.”

With observational and often surreal lyrics, The Lovely Eggs have a powerful raw sound that creates the sonic illusion of a band twice their size. They have become known for their ferocious yet joyous live performances.

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.
