This spring the Black Lips is joining forces with New York’s own Vivian Girls to give the East Coast and Midwest a taste of uninhibited garage rock ‘n roll. The tour will include shows with Quintron and Miss Pussycat and Ty Segall as well as a stint on the party-boat Bruise Cruise. The psych-rock jokers that make up the Black Lips have been working with producer extraordinaire Mark Ronson on the next full-length album to be released via Vice. It can only be expected that Ronson’s impact will bring new dimension to the already multifaceted sound that the Black Lips has delivered on past albums.



If a live sneak peek of unreleased Ronson-inspired Black Lips material didn’t already lend this tour enough incentive, the perfect pairing with surf-punk Vivian Girls ought to seal the deal. The female trio’s newest album is set to drop on Polyvinyl sometime this spring.
