The Black Lips

Touring in support of their new album, Arabia Mountain, the Black Lips will crisscross these United States with nasty garage punk designed to tickle that primitive part of your brain that wants two-minute masterpieces to drum on your steering wheel to. Anyone itching for a loud and fidgety summer album (and tour) can stop looking. The Black Lips have you covered.
