With Egg Mania reaching fever pitch, due to public demand, surreal DIY punk rockers The Lovely Eggs (and hardest working band in indie), have announced another tour in the Autumn. This follows their nearly sold-out run later this month and will include the previously announced biggest London headline show to date at The Scala on 28 October. The band will also be playing at festivals in the summer, including Rebellion, Festival Number 6 and Green Man.
They have also created a marvellous video for their latest single “Big Sea”
, which combines fantastical animation with footage from their twelve years of touring, giving a taster of the thrills in store from the live shows – as Holly Ross
explains; “It’s our life on film really.”
The single will be released on 7” surf blue vinyl on 18 May via Egg Records and is taken from their newly released and critically acclaimed album This is Eggland
. “Big Sea” explores the mysteries of the universe with a rallying anthem to everyone who wants to live life differently.
“It’s a pretty deep song really,” said Holly, “It questions the ridiculousness of human ritualistic behaviour and tries to look at what life is all about, the universe and stuff, and the mystery that weaves its way through everything.”
