    Default New Flaming Lips on the way

    from pitchfork:

    The Flaming Lips to Drop Double LP

    While we eagerly anticipate the Flaming Lips' headlining set at this year's Pitchfork Music Festival-- which will include fan requests!-- the guys are wrapping up their brand new album. It might be called Embryonic, according to a Stereogum report. And now Billboard tells us that the late summer release will be the Oklahoma band's first double LP.

    "Our past couple of records we've always had this little dilemma, like how many songs do you put on? How many instruments do you put on? What's the focus? And some of my favorite records-- thinking Beatles White Album, Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti and even some of the longer things that the Clash have done-- part of the reason I like them is that they're not focused. They're kind of like a free-for-all and go everywhere." Wayne Coyne told Billboard, before expounding on the record's "freak-out" vibe.

    Song titles include "Convinced of the Hex" and "I Don't Understand Karma".
    Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.

    I can't wait to see them here in Japan. Watching them live is like being on the best drug I've ever been on. Smoked Wayne Coyne?

    It's like Christmas on Mars in August! The Flaming Lips just sent out this e-mail:

    "We're happy to announce that we'll be releasing a new double-album entitled 'Embryonic' later this year. We've just confirmed our Summer tour dates and decided to reward our long-time loyal fans by offering a special ticket bundle available for sale online - the bundle will come with a ticket to see the band live along with an exclusive online digital EP that will contain 3 songs from the upcoming record - 'Convinced of The Hex,' 'The Impulse' and 'Silver Trembling Hands' plus three additional rare b-side tracks that we've selected. In addition to the ep, the bundle includes a digital download bootleg of the same show that you attend, which will be available after the show."

    Confirmed tour dates are:
    Sat Aug 15 Del Mar Race Track Infield Del Mar, CA (non-bundle date)
    Mon Aug 17 Greek Theater Los Angeles, CA
    Tue Aug 18 Fox Theater Pomona, CA

    Fuck yes. I can see them on August 15th twenty mins away for like $7. And then after I move on the 16th, I can do the 17th and 18th shows. Seems perfect.

    That's what I thought about Gnarls Barkly last year at Del Mar. I ended up spending about $150 including gambling and drinking.

    Well fuck, completely misread that.

    No Nor Cal date? That had better mean Treasure Island is a lock, damnit.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Nice. I think I saw the last show too many times. But that set at the Bowl remains a very fond memory. Hopefully another is in the cards.
