Lovecraft return for first live show in over eight years
Formed as teenagers in Widnes in 2003, the group went on to release their critically acclaimed debut album – Whistle And I’ll Come To You My Lad – in 2011, promoting the release by supporting Probe Plus label mates Half Man Half Biscuit across the UK.
This was followed three years later by second LP The Nervous System, an often darkly comedic examination of the human condition through a sci-fi prism.
Taking a hiatus in aftermath of their sophomore album, Lovecraft resumed briefly in the midst of the pandemic in 2020, releasing remotely recorded EP Out Of Ether.
Returning with the longest-serving lineup of Craig Sinclair, Rob Morris, Lloyd and Simon Gabriel, with new additions Dominic Price and Dave Miller, the band will take the stage for their first live show in over eight years this August.
Support includes Bedfordshire singer-songwriter Willow Beggs. Making her name both as a solo artist and as part of sibling group The Beggs Sisters, Willow performs following recent folk-pop single The Perfect Life.
Kicking off the night is “Liverpool’s Art-House Witch” Pretentious Dross. Following the success of EAT ME – a radical and inclusive queer club night in Liverpool that Pretentious co-produced – Pretentious Dross brings her avant-drag show to the Wirral.
Lovecraft and support will take the stage of the Bloom Building – home of mental health charity
Open Door – with all profits from tickets going towards the continued provision of mental health services including CBT, mindfulness, eating disorder support, and more.
Doors open at 7pm Saturday 12 August, with advance tickets starting at £10.
