Black Lips are kings of the psychedelic garage rock underground. They started the band when they were 15 years old and spent the next seven years touring the world, booking themselves, playing for scraps. Underground parties, basement shows, outlaw festivals, the odd tour opening for Yeah Yeah Yeah’s and Be Your Own Pet, plus three classic albums, countless 7"s, a couple DVDs, and their own seminal garage rock label Die Slaughterhaus cemented their reputation. They're now 22 years old, grizzled veterans of the underground, and legends in the scene.
Now's when they explode. Their unpredictable live show has turned them into the most notorious band on the road-- three singers singing lead on almost every song, flying blood, group kissing, sudden nudity, fireworks explosions, and pissing into their mouths and onto the audience are just some of the tricks up their sleeve. Their latest release Los Valientes del Mundo Nuevo perfectly captures the excitement and chaos of their live show while showcasing all of their greatest hits. It's the perfect prize for fans and the ultimate introduction for beginners.
Playing self-coined "flower punk" in the vein of Nuggets-faves The Seeds and The 13th Floor Elevators, live or on record it's hard to hide the fun these boys have and impossible to describe how uninhibited audiences get at their shows. Black Lips have tapped into a very secret well that everyone wants to drink from. Black Lips release their new studio record Septmember 18th on Vice Recordings.
