Mark has been doing a Q&A on his Instagram story about Lovejoy! Here are the questions he's answered so far, including "The Fall" being the first song they wrote for PB, memories from the Isle of Wight, and touring!
He also shared a video of Lovejoy in the Isle of Wight back in May (with "Model Buses" playing in the background)! Transcript of Q&A below:
Question: About how long did it take to write all the songs for pebble brain?
Answer: The Fall was the first song we wrote for the record. We began writing during our trip away to Isle of Wight in May (see my TikTok for BTS)
Question: Out of all the songs on the EP which do you want to/can't wait to perform live?
Answer: the fall is going to be massive live
Question: Do you have any favorite parts you love to play from the new EP?
Answer: Probably this [It's All Futile! It's All Pointless!] outro/breakdown and the bridge in Model Buses!
Question: How did you guys come up with the name lovejoy?
Answer: It's this beauty's surname! [pointing at a picture of Benedict Lovejoy]
Question: any information for tours?
Answer: Unfortunately, tours at the moment take months to prepare (cause covid) :( If we could, we would do world tours tomorrow! It's just out of our hands at the minute. But in 2022 we will be hitting the UK hard as well as the rest of the world hopefully!
Question: How much do you estimate you will charge for tickets to come see you?
Answer: That depends on many factors, the main being the specific venue and venue size. But I would love to think tickets will be around £12-£15 or $16-$20 but it's not up to us unfortunately :(
Question: favorite memory from the isle of wight
Answer: Seeing Will and Joe's face when they woke up and heard the very, very, very first version of model buses that I had written while they were asleep! Will said "that is exactly how I want the next record to sound" which got me hyped to write even more. P.S. here is Beans [his cat :)]
