We’re delighted to be welcoming The Lovely Eggs back to Gorilla!

The Lovely Eggs are back on the road in 2020 as they announce a string of tour dates around the UK!

With observational and often surreal lyrics about life The Lovely Eggs have a powerful raw sound that creates the sonic illusion of a band twice their size. The result is a mix of heavy psych, pop and strangeness and they have become known for their ferocious yet joyous live performances.

Their new single This Decision is out on 10 January, followed by their new album I am Moron – produced by Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, MGMT, Tame Impala, Mogwai) – in the Spring.

With much support from BBC 6 Music and Radio 1, the band continues to sell out gigs across the UK without the help of management, booking agent or record label support. They are selling out bigger and bigger venues and more eggheads are joining them in their crusade against bullsh*t.

Catch them live in April 2020 for the “I am Moron” UK album tour.

Main support comes from York’s Mark Wynn.

Opening the show is Dog Daisies. Dog Daisies is a widescreen lo-fi indie-pop project based around the home-studio adventures of Lancastrian songwriter Stephen Hudson. Inspired by motorways, midnight walks, 1980s films and the Lancashire coast, Dog Daisies released the debut LP Eagletism at the end of 2019 to glowing press reviews and repeated airplay on BBC 6 Music. Described as ‘Stand by Me put to music and set on a motorway’, it is a record brimming with imagination and melody; it touches on themes of time-travel and the great outdoors whilst inviting comparisons to bands like Grandaddy, Guided by Voices and Mercury Rev.

This is a 14+ show. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
