THE LOVELY EGGS Announce Brand New Album

THE LOVELY EGGS Announce Brand New Album

Due out on 16 February via Egg Records

The Lovely EggsNorthern 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 video for the first single from the album, ‘I Shouldn’t Have Said That’ (below) is also out. Directed by Casey Raymond (cult underground artist has worked with Sleaford Mods, Cate Le Bon and John Grant), the video features the Lovely Eggs duo of Holly and David as well as an appearance from Bob from Twin Peaks, perfect for giving you the creeps during the Halloween season!

“I Shouldn’t Have Said That” is due out on 3 November on limited edition black and white 7” vinyl and accompanied by bespoke artwork by Turner-Prize nominated outsider artist David Shrigley. Lurching, reeling and spitting with anger and regret, the song 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. 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.
