The Flaming Lips Unleash Their New Album 'The Terror' On Monday 1st April 2013

The Flaming Lips and Bella Union records are pleased to announce the long-awaited release of The Terror, the band's thirteenth studio album, on Monday 1st April 2013. As per usual, the album was produced by long-time collaborator Dave Fridmann and The Flaming Lips at Tarbox Road Studios.  The album is comprised of nine original compositions that reflect a darker-hued spectrum than previous works along with a more inward-looking lyrical perspective than one might expect - but then again, maybe not.  It's up to you, the listener, to decide what it means to you.

Wayne Coyne explains, "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."

The Terror is a bold and expressive journey that has evolved over  The Flaming Lips' nearly 30 year tended garden of sonic delights that ebbs and flows with extraordinary splashes of darkness and light, pleasure and pain, chaos and order.  As we've come to know THE FLAMING LIPS, the real beauty lies with the knowledge that to expect the unexpected is all part of the manic fun.

"We want, or wanted, to believe that without love we would disappear", Coyne continues, "that love, somehow, would save us that, yeah, if we have love, give love and know love, we are truly alive and if there is no love, there would be no life. The Terror is, we know now, that even without love, life goes on... we just go on. there is no mercy killing."

The Flaming Lips will be visiting the UK in May for two performances at the Roundhouse in London. Those dates below.

Monday 20 May - LONDON - Roundhouse (£32)
Tuesday 21 May - LONDON - Roundhouse (£32)

The Terror is released Monday 1st April 2013 on Bella Union records in the UK & Europe and Warner Bros in the US. A new no-album track entitled 'Sun Blows Up Today' will be available from 3rd February.
