clipping. announce 2017 dates with The Flaming Lips, promptly win a Grammy and Tony award for doing so

After spending 2016 primarily making Thomas Jefferson seem cool-as-shit, cranking out “Afrofuturist, dystopian concept albums” like Spelndor & Misery and bonus EPs like Wriggle, and even jamming with Conan O’brien, you could probably forgive L.A.-based experimental rap collective clipping. for taking 2017 off.

But seeing as how MC Daveed Diggs, William Hutson, and Jonathan Snipes are as freakin’ NONSTOP as Alexander Hamilton was, they aren’t slowing down a bit heading into the new year. After taking a few days of R&R over the new year following their current run of Europe and the UK, starting in February, they’ll be back at it, trekking out across the US for a tour that kinda, pretty much covers it all: there’s a triumphant headline run, then a direct-support slot jaunt with The Flaming Lips, and even a festival appearance (at next year’s Noise Pop) thrown in the middle for good measure.

Tickets for all this manifest-destiny shit are on sale now (except the L.A. date at The Broad, which goes on sale in January). Check it all out down below, and witness for yourself how a group this on fire can even manage to turn a dumb list of numbers and letters into a goddamn sensation!
