Having already announced a series of summer tour dates, including shows with The Black Keys, Spiritualized, as well as several outdoor festivals and the Rock For Oklahoma Benefit Concert in July, THE FLAMING LIPS will perform a string of East Coast dates with Australian rock band Tame Impala this fall, including shows in Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia. All upcoming tour dates are listed below.

The band are touring in support of their latest album THE TERROR, their thirteenth studio album, which is out now and has amassed critical praise:

flaming-lips-the-terror

“Before the confetti cannons and sci-fi Day-Glo-pop operettas, The Flaming Lips made great acid-nightmare rock records about the high cost of transcendence. The Terror is that darkness returned: a gripping middle-age-mystic crisis with rude, cosmic-German electronics crowding Wayne Coyne’s tremulous boy-explorer voice. The beauty is fleeting but piquant. A choral glow cuts past the clatter and seizures…Heaven, on Earth or anywhere else, doesn’t come easy.” -Rolling Stone (4 out of 5 stars)

“…Entrancing darkness makes for some seriously bleak, intensely involving new music.” – Spin.com (9 out of 10)

“Sounding almost post-apocalyptic in its scabrous, searching bleakness… The Terror moans and scrapes ominously from its opening seconds onward. Scorched and frayed, with an almost industrial ugliness to it… the sound of a world (and, it would seem, a band) in distress, even decay.” – NPR
