DIY Lancashire duo THE LOVELY EGGS have announce a UK tour for next Spring.
The dates, scheduled for May, are due to coincide with the pair's next album, the follow-up to their Independent Chart-topper I Am Moron, which they've been working on in recent weeks.
The workaholic duo have been cutting back on gigs and interspersing recording sessions as they work to secure the future of the Lancaster Music Co-Op, from which The Lovely Eggs emerged.
“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,” she continues. “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.”
