Black Lips Announce New LP & Tour



The Black Lips have announced the release date and name of their new LP. The 14-track follow-up Good Bad Not Evil will will once again be put out by Vice Records and will see the Lips tour extensively to multiple continents. We're hoping they bring LiveFastDie along for the ride, since they were so fun together during CMJ.

To be released Stateside on February 24, the new LP will be called 200 Million Thousand (or, as pointed out by Pitchfork, the number 2 followed by 11 zeroes). With 200 Million Thousand in hand, the Lips will hit the road a week before the release to do a brief UK run followed by a full tour of the Eastern half of the US with a stop over in Austin for SxSW.
