DIY punk rockers The Lovely Eggs have announced the latest single to be taken from their celebrated ‘This is Eggland’ album (not least by us – read our review here), Big Sea, which will drop on surf blue 7″ vinyl on May 18th. It explores the mysteries of the universe and is a call to arms for people who want to live an alternate lifestyle. “It’s a pretty deep song really,” said Holly from the band, “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.”
It’s noisy, brash and day-glo punk rock, but there’s something there (as always with them Lovely Eggs), poppy choruses, little arpeggioed synths,, this sort of unrelenting guitar noise, that pulls you close and doesn’t let you go. Not that you’d want to.

To coincide with the release of their new single “Big Sea”, the eggs will take to the road for a string of UK tour dates in May and June, this time with their pals Mr Ben and the Bens (a firm favourite of Marc Riley) and poet and comedian Rob Auton, before a summer-full of festivals and their biggest headline gig to date at The Scala in London on 28 October.
