Atlanta punks Black Lips have announced eighth studio album ‘Satan’s Graffiti Or God’s Art?’ - set for release on May 5th via Vice Records.
The album is the self-proclaimed flower punks’ first since 2014’s ‘Underneath The Rainbow’ and was produced by Sean Lennon (son of the legendary Beatle) at his New York studio. The record is also a bit of a family affair, featuring contributions from Lennon’s mother Yoko Ono and ropey cousin Saul Adamczewski of the Fat White Family (only joking, they’re just pals).
In line with the announcement, the band have also shared first single ‘Can’t Hold On’ - a brooding, grizzled garage psych number lamenting the fleeting nature of life.
