The Black Lips have, over the years, become acclimated with ‘road life;’ they’re addicted to gas station food, they prefer sleeping on the floors of friends’ apartments, and the only love they know is the fleeting kind found in one night stands. So it’s no surprise that the Atlanta-based rockers have announced that they are extending their current tour. The band hopes to build up anticipation amongst their fans as they all prepare for the summer behemoth of Lollapalooza Rex.
The Blackened Lips are also expecting the added dates to help them reach a wider swath of people across the country so that that said wider swath will be more inclined to pick up the band’s forthcoming album, Arabia Mountain (set for consumption on June 7 via Vice Records and featuring production from Mark Ronson), which is already making ironically-mustachioed hipsters lick their lips with desire.
