The Lovely Eggs have twice been forced to reschedule the tour because of lockdown and the ban on live gigs in spring and summer 2020.A statement from guitarist Holly Ross and drummer David Blackwell said: “We live to tour and tour to live. This is our life and our livelihood. We want the normal Egg-shaped chaos that you’ve come to expect from a Lovely Eggs gig. We want a party like no other! Looking forward to seeing you all next year!”Their album, I am Moron, went straight to number one in the UK Independent Album Charts. It also took the number one spot in the UK vinyl charts as well as in the UK Independent Album Breakers Chart.Long Stemmed Carnations, the third single from I Am Moron, was released in July and was inspired by the Mars One programme, a global project that aims to establish a permanent human settlement on the planet. Applicants are offered a one-way ticket - never to see Earth again. This fascinated The Lovely Eggs couple who drew parallels between this mission and their own isolation as a band. Holly said: “We are all the pilots of our own ship. You’ve just got to remember it’s important to try and hang on and see the mission through.”
