Black Lips Announce US Tour, Confirm ‘Underneath The Rainbow’ Art

New record is due out in March, backed by several North American dates.

From March 2014, Black Lips are taking their ‘Underneath the Rainbow’ album - the follow-up to 2011’s ‘Arabia Mountain’ - on the road. Shows include a Georgia date with Deerhunter and a two month jaunt across North America. Support for the dates comes from Coathangers and Natural Child and the Atlanta group also make a quick stopover at Austin Texas’ SXSW festival (they return for a show at Austin Psych Fest in April).

Further to this, the band have unveiled some grunge-era channelling artwork that could be mistaken for belonging to a savage metal band by a cursory browser in HMV.

VICE release the new album on 18th March.
