The Lovely Eggs Break Four Year Recorded Silence With New Single, Album & Date At Chalk Brighton

Four long years since the release of their Number One Independent Chart topper, I Am Moron. But its not like they've been lazy. 

They made their own TV series Eggs TV and hosted it on YouTube, they dueted with Iggy Pop, piled into their van and played a load of sold out gigs and festivals, spent two years fighting to save Lancaster Music Co-Op (a community rehearsal rooms and recording studio where they live), and then they got their heads down and wrote a new album…

Due in this month, the new Lovely Eggs 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 and the latest single to drop is Nothing/Everything.


The song clocks in at just over seven-minutes and is nothing short of The Lovely Eggs magnum opus about life. 

It's gorgeously melodic, uplifting yet melancholic, and sparkling with psychedelic glitter.

"Nothing/Everything is the Yin/Yang of life," explains singer Holly Ross. 

"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 band will be back out on the road this month, including a date at Chalk Brighton, on 29th May.

"It is going to be frigging joyous to reunite with all our Eggheads across the UK and just have a big party each show" exclaims Holly. 

"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."
