According to the tinymixedtapes website (from which the photo above is pilfered), the new Flaming Lips album, Embryonic, will be released this September as a double-LP. This probably means the Lips will be touring around this time.
Their best album imho, The Soft Bulletin, will be reissued on 180-gram, high-quality vinyl next Tuesday (June 23). The double-LP will also include a cd containing three unreleased tracks from the SB sessions. This is good news for those of us who've balked at paying over $100 on ebay for the original vinyl.
