INTERVIEW: Lancaster band The Lovely Eggs announce album launch event

Holly from The Lovely Eggs visits the Beyond Radio studio for The Fishy and Foggy Show with Paul Fisher and Matt Fogg

Lancaster band The Lovely Eggs have a busy time coming up with a new album, single, tour and launch event - and they've spoken to Beyond Radio about it, twice!

David and Holly Blackwell are set to release 'Eggsistentialism' on May 17 and will celebrate with a launch at The Pub on China Street on the same day.

The duo will also be going out on a UK tour starting on May 23 taking in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester, London, Bristol, Nottingham, Leeds, Brighton and Birmingham.

The first single from the new album 'Nothing/Everything' was released on April 26 as a limited edition 7” on yellow vinyl and is described by the duo as "nothing short of The Lovely Eggs' magnum opus about life".

Holly and David recently spoke to Beyond Radio's Filipa Gaspar about the new album.

Holly also visited the Beyond Radio studio to chat to The Fishy and Foggy Show on April 23, which you can hear at our LISTEN AGAIN page. 

“Nothing/Everything is the Yin/Yang of life,” said Holly.

“There’s hope and despair, patience and frustration, the mundane and the extraordinary. There is a universal and eternal magic within the everyday world around us that needs to be recognised, especially when the chips are down. This song is simply what is. It’s not looking forward or back. It’s us now. It’s uplifting and it’s tragic.”

The song is complimented by a video created by contemporary visual artists Wood and Harrison, who are best known for their works of physical minimalist performance, exhibiting in Tate, MoMA, and Centre Pompidou.

“We are huge fans of Wood and Harrison,” said Holly.

“As soon as we discovered their work, we felt an immediate connection with what they were doing and drew parallels between what they seemed to be expressing through their art with what we are trying to achieve through music. We had such a clear vision that they had to make the video for ‘Nothing/Everything’. We love their work and we’re so glad that they could be involved."

The ‘Nothing/Everything’ release features more out of this world artwork by illustrator Casey Raymond. The A side features the full seven minute two second opus, while the flip features a single edit cut.

In true Lovely Eggs style, every 7” copy bought direct from the band’s website will include a limited-edition collectible mystery scratch card. What will you win? Nothing? Or Everything? ORDER HERE.

Designed by Dead Human and made in collaboration with artists Wood and Harrison, each scratch card will contain a hidden message alongside a secret code, the meaning of which will be revealed in the fullness of time!

Once again, the album was recorded by the band at home in Lancaster with production work from Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann. They flew to America in December 2023 to mix the album in Fridmann’s studio in upstate New York.

The band says the results "are without doubt the most expansive, mind-melting 10 songs" they have delivered yet.
