The Lovely Eggs Announce Spring UK Tour, Share Wiggy Giggy Video

Wednesday, 14 February 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

The Lovely Eggs have announced plans to tour the UK in April and May.

The indie-pop duo, who are currently midway through a February tour, will return to the road towards the end of April, with stops confirmed in Nottingham, Manchester, Preston, Bristol, Guildford, Hastings, Ramsgate, Cambridge, Birmingham, Derby and Sheffield. They also have a date at Scala in London in the diary for October.

The new shows will be the band's first following the release of their new album, 'This Is Eggland', which arrives on February 23 via their own Egg Records.

To celebrate the announcement, the band have shared a self-directed video for their latest single, Wiggy Giggy. Speaking about the track, guitarist and vocalist Holly Ross said:

"It is inspired by a book we used to read to our son, about a spaceman who went off exploring other planets but every planet he went to, there was something inhospitable or wrong with it and when he landed back on planet Earth he realised that after all his cosmic travels that earth was the best place for him to live. It was pretty deep and we really identified with it. We feel the same about Lancaster where we live. It might be a shithole, but it’s OUR shithole and we love it. Not much goes on up here and there’s not much to do so it’s kind of like living in space. But we like being cosmonauts!"

Paul Weller - True Meanings (Album Review)
Mon 24 Sep 2018
Paul Weller is consistently operating at a level that most other musical grandees struggle to reach. His 14th solo record arrives hot on the heels of 2017’s ‘A Kind Revolution’, an innovative rock album that reminded us that the modfather still possesses political punch and a high degree of intellectual dynamism. ‘True Meanings’ is far softer and comprises pastoral ballads led mostly by acoustic guitar.
