Flaming Lips Pucker Up for Spring Concert Dates

Flaming Lips Pucker Up for Spring Concert Dates

Quirky rockers Flaming Lips will be hitting the road this month in support of last year’s release ‘Embryonic.’ The band will launch the tour on March 12 in Austin, Texas and carry through to the end of March before taking on some summer festival dates including Bonnaroo. Opening duties for the coming tour have fallen to Stardeath and the White Dwarfs whose lead singer just happens to be nephew of Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne.

The Flaming Lips latest original album ‘Embryonic’ was a double album, recorded with Dave Fridmann. In December, they also released a remake of Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ which included vocals from the likes of Peaches and Henry Rollins. Originally, the work was only available in digital format, but the band has plans for a vinyl release on April 17 and to CD shelves May 4.
