The Lovely Eggs will release their seventh album, Eggsistentialism, on Friday 17th May on Egg Records. Their third collaboration with Grammy Award winning producer Dave Fridmann, Eggsistentialism will be released on limited edition "mind green" vinyl with more breathtaking, mindboggling artwork by illustrator Casey Raymond. A special indie store exclusive of 1,000 copies on transparent blue vinyl with "coffee" splatter is also available while stocks last.

Eggsistentialism sees The Lovely Eggs return after a four-year break following their #1 Independent selling album I am Moron. During that time they have made their own TV show Eggs TV (featuring Ian McKaye, Stewart Lee, Katie Puckrik, Maxine Peake, David Shrigley and more), duetted with Iggy Pop, played a load of sold-out gigs and festivals and fought a campaign to save Lancaster Music Co-op (a community rehearsal rooms and recording studio where they live).

Recorded at home in Lancaster, with production advice from Dave Fridmann, the album was mixed at Tarbox Road Studios, NY with Dave Fridmann and the band.

As the title suggests, Eggsistentialism explores a much more personal, introspective, and reflective side to The Lovely Eggs world, and sees the Eggs explore new sounds and experiment in unventured musical territories.

"The new album is really a reflection on what has been happening to us these last couple of years, stewing up in Eggland in our own juices," explains Holly. "It's about loss and strength. On this album you'll hear us at our lowest and most vulnerable. Daily life is hard. Realising everything you grew up with and loved is never coming back, alongside the responsibilities of caring for others is sometimes hard to take. The album is about life and death. Eggsistentialism. It's about dragging yourself through all the shit to get to the other side."

"It's a bit of a 'wilderness years' album," continues Holly. "We haven't released a new record since 2020 and in the meantime, we've been here fighting shit and trying to defend a right to a lifestyle that we've enjoyed here in this town for the last 30-plus years as working musicians who refuse to get a 'normal' job and tow the line. It's about believing in something and not letting go. But that unwillingness to give in ultimately takes its toll. It does start to destroy you and the album is kind of a documentation of that destruction and collapse as well as the strength we've got to get through it all. Ultimately, this is a hopeful record about survival."
