As Wayne Coyne Tweeted, THE FLAMING LIPS have announced that they will perform two shows to celebrate the New Year at the Bricktown Events Center in Oklahoma City on December 31st and January 1, 2012. The band promises to pull out all the stops with MORE of everything! More confetti, more balloons, massive volume, and maximum weirdness for its NEW YEAR’S FREAKOUT 5, which also features very special guests YOKO ONO PLASTIC ONO BAND. Tickets go on sale today, Friday Nov 25th, and are priced at $100 per night or available at a special package price of $150 for both nights.

Expect exclusive merch to be available for this event only. Plus Gummy Fetuses (containing a USB drive featuring three new songs: “Enthusiasm For Life Defeats Existential Fear Part 2,” “Steven’s Moonbow,” and “Squishy Glass”), Gummy Skulls (Exclusive LA Edition) which houses a USB drive that contains “The Soft Bulletin: Live La Fantastique de Institution 2011,” a complete live concert recording of THE SOFT BULLETIN. Once these are gone, they are gone for good. Also on sale will be the mesmerizing light illusion toy The Strobo Trip, which also include a USB drive with three exclusive recordings: “Butterfly, How Long It Takes To Die,” “Found A Star On The Ground,” — the 6 hour long song that will blow your mind way beyond the third bardo – plus “Evil Minds,” are all on sale at the Flaming Lips Webstore.

Also recently released is “7 Skies H3″ – yes, the 24-hour long song! This comes in a real genuine human skull artfully decorated with chrome and “7 Skies H3″ on a hard drive inside the skull. Cost: $5,000, however these are completely sold out but you can hear the song at http://flaminglipstwentyfourhoursong.com/

The LIPS have also announced a holiday performance to take place on Dec 27th at The Belly Up in Aspen, CO. Be sure to keep an eye on www.flaminglips.com and www.twitter.com/waynecoyne for all things LIPS as new and exciting news is just around the corner.

THE FLAMING LIPS have recorded a brand new song titled “Found A Star On The Ground,” which is undoubtedly the longest single piece of music ever recorded clocking in at a generous 360 minutes. That’s six hours of continuous psychedeliscized music with a view to raise 100% of the proceeds to benefit local Oklahoma concerns: The Central Oklahoma Humane Society and The Academy of Contemporary Music at The University of Central Oklahoma. Much has already been outlined in the press but the official details can finally be revealed.

“Found A Star On The Ground,” began as possible 25 minute opus but as the band actually began the recording process in Steven Drozd’ home studio in Oklahoma City, the ideas began to flow well beyond all scope of epic proportions as one might expect from THE LIPS. A few days of recording blurred into a 4 week off and on process in-between regional and International concert appearances.

It became apparent to the band that this would be the perfect vehicle to foster a charitable component to raise and benefit local foundations that have been close to the hearts of the band for the past several years. The idea arose that THE LIPS could reach out to their fans via their official website and Wayne’s by now famous personal Twitter following. For a donation of $100- fans would have their name appear somewhere in the song and feel good about contributing to a pair of worthy causes the band could share with their fans. Sean Lennon recently recorded the long list contributors’ names to the recording.

The song itself will be contained within a newly-developed mesmerizing toy, THE STROBO TRIP. This unique devise has been called “A Light & Audio Phase Illusions Toy” to use used in conjunction with “Found A Star On The Ground” to create a complete Lipsian happening to be enjoyed by yourself or with other interesting people or pets. Honestly users, you’ll just have to experience this multi-sensory phenomenon for yourselves to understand the concept.

Coyne says, “THE STROBO TRIP by itself is fascinating. I wouldn’t be a surprised to hear about some people taking LSD or something, while listening to “Found A Star On The Ground,” and playing with THE STROBO TRIP for hours and hours. We hope you’ll enjoy them anyway you like.”

If a single 6-hour-long song weren’t enough, THE STROBO TRIP will also contain two more brand new -and much shorter) songs.

THE STROBO TRIP Track listing:
1. Butterfly, How Long It Takes To Die
2. Found A Star On The Ground
3. Evil Minds

The STROBO TRIP will be available shortly.Keep an eye on www.flaminglips.com for details as they become available.

To date, THE LIPS have raised approximately $20,000 in proceeds from this project to be split equally between The Central Oklahoma Humane Society and The Academy of Contemporary Music at The University of Central Oklahoma. Coyne explains “The homeless animal situation in Oklahoma City is at an all-time high – the worst I’ve ever seen. A lot of animals are suffering and need help. It’s all about being aware of this problem and just one way we can make an immediate impact now for The Central Oklahoma Humane Society. The Flaming Lips love all creatures – it’s always been part of our philosophy.” As for The Academy of Contemporary Music at The University of Central Oklahoma, Coyne adds, “When we were a young band starting out, we didn’t have any kind of outlet to help us make necessary connections. This school helps provide the students with a connection to all aspects of a supportive music community. As technology progresses, this is a way for us to help provide the students with upgraded computers and equipment which as you know becomes obsolete quickly. They need to up to date to keep up with that progression to fuel their ideas in all areas in the creation and knowledge of music and art of music making.”

THE FLAMING LIPS are currently on tour:

Oct 24 – Portland, ME @ State Theatre w/Kurt Vile
Oct 25 – Rochester, NY @ Main Street Armory w/Kurt Vile
Oct 27 – Norfolk, VA @ The Norva w/Kurt Vile

Nov 16 – Adelaide, Australia @ Thebarton Theatre
Nov 17 – Melbourne, Australia @ The Palace Theatre
Nov 19 – Brisbane, Australia @ Harvest Festival w/Portishead, The National, Bright Eyes & more

In between touring, THE LIPS will continue to record new music to come in various unique formats to be released in the coming months. At this time we can confirm the rumors of a single 24-hour-long song are indeed insane and absolutely true. THE LIPS are recording the track this month. While lots rumors, speculations and “facts” have been circulating suffice to say official details will be announced once we really know how, when etc. Stay tuned to www.flaminglips.com for details.

THE FLAMING LIPS continue to confirm additional concert dates to their current summer itinerary. All dates are listed below. The LIPS are fresh off their very special two-night engagement in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery where they played to ecstatic capacity crowds, The band performed THE SOFT BULLETIN in its entirety the first night and their version of Pink Floyd’s THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON (including spectacular vocal assistance from Peaches on a pair of Dark Side songs) on the second night. In addition, the LIPS added a brief, stripped-down sunrise performance on the cemetery’s front lawn with assistance from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros on the morning of June 15th. Each of these events has been heavily documented in the media so check out YouTube for highlights.

An exclusive Flaming Lips (life-size) Gummy Skull, with USB drive featuring “The Soft Bulletin: Live La Fantastique de Institution 2011,” was available for this event. It’s very possible that some of these special Skulls may remain in stock so double check the LIPS Official Store and grab it up before it’s gone…forever.

Possibly the most exciting news of the summer is the confirmation of a pair of NY area co-headline shows with Weezer July 28, at PNC Bank Arts Center and July 29, at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater. This will be a first for both bands as they will take the stage together and trade off songs. Naturally, these will be very special events and most likely will never happen again. The only thing that can be predicted is to expect the unpredictable. Yeasayer will provide support.

Commenting on these shows Wayne Coyne remarked: “The Flaming Lips and Weezer are playing a show together…where they are actually playing together.” “I asked Wayne if he has an extra bubble I could ride in,” dared Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo. Needless to say don’t miss these unprecedented, monumental happenings.

As previously reported the LIPS have been busy recording post-EMBRYONIC new material on their own as well as indulging in some unique collaborations. Some of these amazing recordings have manifested themselves into and onto the resoundingly popular 12″ round vinyl “record” format and pressed in vivid multi-hues of Mr. Coyne’s own choosing. These lovely limited-edition artifacts have been sparsely distributed to independent record stores around the country and though most have been grabbed up, search carefully and you shall be rewarded. No two are exactly alike but some are still out there in the bins so happy hunting. Other recordings have found their way onto Flash Drives embedded into the flavorful brains of juicy edible Gummy Skulls randomly distributed to various music emporiums or sold at the Hollywood Forever L.A. shows. Again, these too, may be findable. To recap, here is a list of all the new LIPS music released to date this year:

“TWO BLOBS F**KING,” released on Valentine’s Day, Feb 14th, and available on YouTube now in 12 musical and visual parts designed to be played back on iPhone mobile devices simultaneously to create a lo-fi symphonic effect.

A very limited edition, self-released four-song 12″ color vinyl single followed in March and new songs with THE LIPS collaborating with Neon Indian and featuring the tracks:
“Is David Bowie Dying?,” “Alan’s Theremin,” “You Don’t Respond” and “Do You Want New Wave or Do You Want the Truth Part 2.”

April saw the release of “HEADY NUGGS: THE FIRST 5 WARNER BROS. RECORDS 1992 – 2002″ for Record Store Day comprised of the complete recordings of: Hit To Death In The Future Head (1992), Transmissions From The Satellite Heart (1993), Clouds Taste Metallic (1995), The Soft Bulletin (1999), and the Grammy Award-winning, Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots (2002). Standard issue pressed on 120-gram black vinyl for Record Store Day internationally. A “Special Limited Edition” was also available with each album pressed on colored vinyl (five different colors), sold through the LIPS’ webstore.

Also in April was the first-ever Gummy Skull with different flavored Gummy brain inside the skull (life-sized, completely edible and weighing in at over seven lbs. of chewy goodness), which houses a USB drive inside the brain – of a different flavor and color – with four new and exclusive songs: “Drug Chart,” “In Our Bodies, Out Of Our Heads,” “Walk With Me,” and “Hillary’s Time Machine Machine.” These are now rare but check www.flaminglips.com for details.

In May, another varied colored vinyl limited-edition 12″ four-song EP was released, this time featuring the LIPS collaborating with Prefuse 73 (Guillermo Scott Herren). Tracklist: “The Super Moon Made Me Want to Pee,” “Heavy Star Moving,” “Be Like That…That…That,” and “Guillermo’s Bolero.” Search and you shall find!

In June, a limited edition marijuana-flavored Gummy Skull with a USB drive featuring “The Soft Bulletin: Live La Fantastique de Institution 2011″ was available at the Hollywood Forever Los Angeles shows.

Just in time for July, the LIPS have introduced the Gummy Song Fetus in limited quantities to fans in tour markets. Naturally, the prenatal confection contains a USB Drive embedded into its cranial core with three brand-new recordings exclusive to this release: “Enthusiasm for Life Defeats Existential Fear Part 2,” “Steven’s Moonbow,” and “Squishy Glass.” These will be very limited so don’t hesitate.

Future releases include such exotic formats as…well, you’ll just have to keep an eye on www.flaminglips.com or look for Wayne Infamous tweets for clues. Until then, don’t miss the LIPS live this summer. Check the LIPS official Store for brand new merch available now.

Warning! You may wish to consult a registered physician before attempting to consume several pounds of congealed corn syrup, sugar, citric acid and vegetable oil in a single serving as 29g of carbohydrates at approximately 2500 calories may cause undesirable and unhealthful results. Side effects may include: dizziness, bloating, sweating, vomiting, temporary food-induced coma-like inability to move from the sofa or floor, discoloration of the teeth or bowel movements of an unusual hue. For best recommended results, immediately place USB drive into a compatible playback device set to maximum volume. Instant boogie will ease physical discomfort and enhance a heightened sense of euphoric well-being. Good luck.

What would Halloween be without THE FLAMING LIPS? Certainly nothing as magical and incendiary as their annual Ghouls Gone Wild event held in their hometown of Oklahoma City, that’s what. As we fall into the crisp Autumnal night air of the season’s darkest yet sweetest holiday, THE FLAMING LIPS ask the question: Want to Participate in This Year’s MARCH OF 1000 FLAMING SKELETONS?

This October 23rd, The LIPS will once again host their annual MARCH OF 1000 FLAMING SKELETONS Parade in downtown Oklahoma City’s Bricktown district, just a stones throw away from FLAMING LIPS ALLEY.

Last year’s third annual Ghouls Gone Wild event was a huge success that drew LIPS fans from around the globe. Naturally, this year’s Supernatural procession will be even more elaborate as festive floats, (in) appropriately adorned cars, walking groups and plenty of surprises along with 1000 strong undead snaking through the streets of Oklahoma City.

Order your costume bundle for this year’s parade now in the official Flaming Lips store: www.flaminglips.com/store

Here are a few things you should know before purchasing your bundle:

1. You can wear your costume from previous years and participate in the
parade. If you choose this option you can purchase just the T-shirt and
the torch for $20. All the same rules apply, you must be 18 and you can
only use the torch that we provide.
2. 2010 Death March branded skeleton costumes come in 2 sizes: Standard and
Large. If you order a STANDARD costume, you will only be able to select
between a small or medium t-shirt. If you order a LARGE costume, you
will only be able to select between a large or x-large shirt. Each
bundle comes with a torch and 2010 March of 1000 Skeletons event t-
shirt.
3. You may only purchase 2 costumes. Every costume must be for a person so
we need a person’s name and e-mail address attached to each costume. You
will receive an email from us if you order 2 so we can obtain the other
person in your party’s name.
4. Every skeleton will be carrying a torch with real fire. Anyone in the
parade must be 18. Anyone in the parade must sign a waiver.
5. You will be told at a later date when and where to be so be sure to
enter a valid name, email, mailing address and phone number at checkout.
6. A person must have the ability to march in the parade for up to 2 hours.
7. If you do not show up at the assigned time to pick up your outfit and be
in the parade you forfeit your fee and will not receive a refund.

To celebrate the release of their new studio album Embryonic, The Flaming Lips, one of the world’s most influential rock bands, will be playing a MySpace Music Secret Show in Hollywood, CA, on Thursday, October 15 for their MySpace friends and fans. Tickets for the event will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis at the opening of The Flaming Lips Pop-Up Store at The Nike Theater in Hollywood, CA, on October 15 from Noon until Midnight. Additional tickets will be available at Amoeba records with purchase of the Embryonic CD on street date, October 13. Ticket holders are not guaranteed seating. Doors for the early event open at 6:30 p.m. and will close at capacity.

For the past two decades, The Flaming Lips has remained one of the world’s most influential experimental creative forces in rock music. Each new release has been greeted with ecclesiastical anticipation and embraced by both critics and a loyal, ever-growing/evolving universal fan mass.

Embryonic, the band’s 12th full-length double-album set to be released on October 13, marks their first full studio set in three years following their Grammy Award-winning At War with the Mystics. Embryonic was recorded in Fredonia, NY and Oklahoma City, OK, with studio whiz and general co-conspirator Dave Fridmann and just may be their most sonically adventurous and compositionally vernal form of musical expression ever.
