The Flaming Lips Firm Up Busy Summer Schedule

With most of their summer already plotted as part of the eclectic Unlimited Sunshine Tour, The Flaming Lips have decided to warm up with a series of dates in the UK, beginning with a July 1 kick off in Dublin. The lips, whoís latest Warner Bros. effort will drop July 16 in the form of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, are working hard to develop stage-ready versions of the new songs. According to Billboard, The Flaming Lips will, as they have in the past, use pre-recorded tracks to help replicate the albumís textured arrangements. The albumís first single, "Do You Realize?" has been tearing up commercial specialty radio as of late, landing atop R&Rís commercial specialty chart for two consecutive weeks. Check out The Flaming Lipsí extensive summer plans.
