The Flaming Lips Set To Release New Album ‘The Terror’ On April Fools’ Day

The Flaming Lips, Studio Reports

 

April Fools’ Day is looking pretty sweet for fans of The Flaming Lips. That is the day the band will drop their first proper studio album since 2009.

Flaming Lips The Terror

The Terror will feature nine brand new tracks and was produced by Dave Fridmann and the Lips. Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne shared the following nuggets of information on the new album via a press release.

“Why would we make this music that is The Terror– this bleak, disturbing record…??” I don’t really want to know the answer that I think is coming: that WE were hopeless, WE were disturbed and, I think, accepting that some things are hopeless… or letting hope in one area die so that hope can start to live in another?? Maybe this is the beginning of the answer.”

With a brand new album dropping in April along with the band hitting the road with the Black Keys later in the spring, perhaps it is time we fire up a Flaming Lips Coachella rumor?!?!?

    I’d welcome Wayne & his bubble to the Polo Fields, never seen ‘em.

    It has been many a moon since this band put out anything worthwhile. But I will give them the benefit of the doubt.
