Atlanta’s Black Lips are reaffirming themselves as the perennial flower punk road warriors by once again extending their US tour further into the summer. In addition to previously announced dates with Cerebral Ballzy set for June, the Lips will be hitting the East Coast with a string of club dates and festival appearances at Lollapalooza and the Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh (full dates below). These will mark the first dates in the area following the release of their highly anticipated new full length Arabia Mountain, which drops June 7 on Vice Music. Containing tracks produced by prolific Englishman Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Busta Rhymes, etc), Lockett Pundt (of perennial indie favorites Deerhunter), and the band themselves, the record has garnered a lot of early love from Pitchfork, NME, Spin, and Rolling Stone, who today premiered the new single “New Direction” on their website (link below).

Founding fathers of Atlanta’s “flower punk” movement the Black Lips are set to release Arabia Mountain, their sixth full-length album, June 7th on longtime label Vice Records. Arabia Mountain was recorded between Brooklyn and Atlanta over the last few months of 2010 and with the collaborative assistance of celebrated DJ and producer Mark Ronson, Lockett Pundt of Deerhunter, and a human skull with a microphone jammed into it.

Arabia Mountain also marks the first time the Lips have worked with an outside producer. Mark Ronson, best known for his production work with the likes of Nas, Adele, Kaiser Chiefs, Duran Duran, Lily Allen, and Amy Winehouse, recorded nine of the album’s tracks at MetroSonic studios in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, amid a 10-day bender of late nights and one hospital visit. He then came back to Atlanta’s Living Room studio for an additional 5 days to add the finishing touches.

“I was already a fan of the Black Lips coming into it and I definitely didn’t want to fuck up anything,” Ronson told Rolling Stone in December. And fuck up he did not. The production tests the limits of modern amplification technology, harkening to the full, meaty sound of Fun House or Lola Versus Powerman or whatever your favorite record of 1970 is.

The Black Lips will be touring the new material up and down the Eastern Seaboard with garage-pop ladyband the Vivian Girls in April, and again on the West Coast with skateboarding hardcorers Cerebral Ballzy. Full dates below.
