Double Yorkshire Dates for The Lovely Eggs
by Victoria Holdsworth
Have you ever been to Eggland? If not, then you are missing out!
Throughout their 13-year career, The Lovely Eggs have embraced isolation. Both metaphorically and geographically the married couple have chosen to shun the social conventions of normal life and dedicated their band and their life to the pursuit of what feels right.
Operating out of their hometown of Lancaster, The Lovely Eggs are lonely pioneers and self-confessed kings of idiocy. Working in an industry whose currency is money, success and nepotism, The Lovely Eggs want none of it. They call out everything fake and plastic about the music industry and demand you to re-evaluate on their terms.
They’re undoubtedly the most real band in Britain, operating in a world when true authenticity is hard to find.
For the last two years, The Lovely Eggs have sat back and watched England and the rest of the planet slowly eat itself. Their new album, I am Moron, is the result of their observations and a relentless analysis of a modern culture, that is bringing the world to its knees.
I am Moron is the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2017 album This is Eggland. It is their second album co-produced and mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Tame Impala) and continues their journey through Eggland into the unknown.
Continuing the heaviness of the previous album, I am Moron brings more depth to their sound bringing with it a mix of heavy psych, pop and strangeness. Some songs flicker between an earthly realism and the otherworldly loneliness of a one-way space mission. While in contrast, ‘Insect Repellent’ launches a gonzo-style attack against the middle classes and ‘Bearpit’ questions the essence of working-class freedom.
With no booking agent, manager, record label or publisher The Lovely Eggs are truly independent. This isn’t due to economics, this is by design. Support for these guys is snowballing and they are selling out bigger and bigger venues, with more eggheads joining them in their crusade against bullsh*t.
The new album, I am Moron, is released April 3rd via Egg Records, and the band will be making an appearance at The Brudenell in Leeds on the upcoming tour. Tickets have already sold out, but be on the look out for any additional dates to be added to meet demand. The band also play Sheffield Network on April 24.
